I shamefully never saw this as a kid. I read the comic, but never saw the movie of it, despite loving the tv series. But I saw it a couple of months ago and was really digging the soundtrack. It's by a composer dude named Vince DiCola, who also did the soundtrack to Rocky IV (the training montage music is fucking amazing).
I've been doing some cover versions of some of its tracks. So far, I've finished two; 'Autobot/Decepticon Battle' and 'Megatron Must Be Stopped Part 1 & 2'. I'm part-way through editing the Megatron video, but I finished the Battle one.
I think Megatron came out better, and I think I prefer the mix on that one, even though it's clipping in places. But they're both really awesome compositions. Most of the soundtrack is, really. Apart from Weird Al's song.
Here's the Megatron track.
And here's the video for the Battle one (still processing, but should be done soon).

Tom (DR) might remember that To-Mera used to play this to open their sets. That's where I first heard anything from this soundtrack, so I need to doff my cap to them.
This is awesome. Nice work!
