Bionic Commando Theme
The Bionic Commando Theme is a song heard in various games from the Bionic Commando series. It was composed by Harumi Fujita for the original arcade game and has been remixed for several other games. The track has a wonderful snare drum throughout the song giving it the perfect military march sound.
The Bionic Commando Theme had several unofficial titles like Area 1 from the NES port, or The Forefront from the arcade game, but when Simon Wiklund released the soundtrack, he gave the song its now official title.
This song was covered by Machinae Supremacy to promote the Bionic Commando reboot.

Bionic Commando (GB)
The Game Boy rearrangement is very similar to the NES version, only with a slower tempo and lower fidelity. The bulk of the song is intact, but it is missing the bridge. It plays only in area 13.
