The game contains only one tune - modified version of the [[Queen]]'s [[Vultan's Theme]]. This great song is repeating in the menu.

The game's only song is the [[Apache Strike Theme]] which plays at the the title screen, and sounds to be a combination of the [[Airwolf Main Theme]] and [[Vultan's Theme (Attack of the Hawk Men)]].
 
 
This is rearranged version of the [[Apache Strike (MAC)|Macintosh tune]]. Arranger did a nice work converting sound for Commodore platform, so its quality is much better than original game music.
