We have always had strong roots in Dragon Ball music. Whether it was offering up rare downloads at a time when it was difficult to actually obtain Japanese CD releases, or cataloging nearly every CD ever released, we are proud of our musical background. We wanted to continue in this tradition, but walk a fine line into the 21st century. It no longer makes sense to offer even degraded versions of music that is now readily available on services like iTunes, and the constant re-releases in Japan at budget prices makes it trivial for fans to legally obtain legit versions of the music they love.
We are proud to bring you a selection of music exclusively available on our website legally, completely free of charge, from their original performers. Whether it is a cute parody or a remastering of unreleased movie scoring, this is your best source for genuinely unreleased and rare Dragon Ball music. New additions are typically debuted in our weekly podcast, and then archived for download on this page at their original bitrate/encoding.

“Gokū Hishōden (Title Theme)”
One of our forum members rearranged the entire soundtrack to the Nintendo GameBoy game Gokū Hishōden

Unlike some of the other songs we have offered, including another parody song, this literally has no backing in the Dragon Ball universe… but it is so hilarious and features the caricature versions of dub DBZ voices from TeamFourStar… we basically couldn’t help ourselves. Enjoy!
