300 is the soundtrack to the 2007 film 300. It was composed by Tyler Bates and was released on March 6, 2007, three days before the film opened for public viewing.
The lyrics sung are in Greek and Latin. The opening lines of the track "Come and Get Them" are "Ferto! - Parte to!" (φέρτο! – πάρτε το!) translating as "give it! - get it!". It is said that Leonidas exclaimed Molōn Labe! (Μολὼν Λαβέ!) when asked by Xerxes to surrender their weapons.
There exists a normal edition and a deluxe edition containing photos and artwork from the film. The soundtrack debut at #74 on the Billboard Top 200 and rose to #52 in its second week. It has sold 37,638 copies to date.
The song used in the trailers of the movie, Nine Inch Nails's "Just Like You Imagined", is absent from the soundtrack. The song "Knights of Cydonia" by Muse is used in one of the movie's DVD advertisements.
The track, "Come And Get Them" was used for the trailer of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
300 was orchestrated and conducted by Timothy Williams.
The soundtrack borrows elements from Elliot Goldenthal's 1999 score for Titus, giving rise to some controversy in the film composer community. "Remember Us," from 300, is identical in parts to the "Finale" from Titus, and "Returns A King" (300) is similar to "Victorius Titus." On August 3, 2007, Warner Bros. Pictures acknowledged in an official statement, "a number of the music cues for the score of "300" were, without our knowledge or participation, derived from music composed by Academy Award winning composer Elliot Goldenthal for the motion picture "Titus." Warner Bros. Pictures has great respect for Elliot, our longtime collaborator, and is pleased to have amicably resolved this matter."
