I have been constantly thinking about the music in 40k universe when it comes to specific races, the kind of music that would perhaps represent the race. So far I matched only a few races with their "respective" lyric. The races left blank have still not been though off so any ideas are apreciated.
So far I came up with the following soundtracks/theme which in my opinion best correlate with the specified race:
YouTube - Imperial Battle Music (General combat theme)
YouTube - Turanic Raiders Battle Music (General combat theme, my personal favorite)
YouTube - Homeworld 2 Soundtrack Video (Probably the best eldar theme ever made, a definite must)
YouTube - Freedom Fighters Music - Invasion of the Empire(Vostroyan probably)
YouTube - freedom fighters theme(Vostroyan Probably)
YouTube - The Rock -Movie- (1996) Original Soundtrack - Movietheme #2 (General combat theme)
YouTube - The Rock -Movie- (1996) Original Soundtrack - Movietheme #1 (General combat theme)
YouTube - RHAPSODY- Holy Thunderforce (Space Wolves theme)
YouTube - disturbed - down with the sickness (General combat theme)
YouTube - Resident Evil: Down with the sickness (Nurgle theme)
YouTube - One Winged Angel - March of the Villains (Remake)
YouTube - Kingdom of Heaven Burning the past (Good general theme)
YouTube - Nightwish - Amaranth (Genral combat theme)
YouTube - RHAPSODY- Holy Thunderforce (General theme)
YouTube - Halo - Covenant Dance
YouTube - Eximius Vespertilio Requiem
Please feel free to contribute ideas so I could add to the list, perhaps we could come up with a good list of songs for every race...
P.S Please be specific, the race theme has to be general and provide a good description for both the combat and life aspects of the race, so halo soundtrack obviously only applies to combat. If its a combat only theme, or a general only theme than please specify it.

WraithGuardian, I really don't know what to say after playing all those sound tracks - I know that GW stores here in Sydney Australia have some sort of common music but I have never even contemplated what is was much less asking about.
The music here seems to be heavy metal but I am no expert on these matters.
Must admit though it does set the mood for high energy, gut busting, soul stripping stomping of your opponents!
Ok, you got me thinking here and I just might have a look around for some suitable music.
(Love the Vostroyan themes though!)
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
We put on a mix of the following when we play:
I'll have to check out your suggested Dark Eldar themes and work them into the mix. Wonder what would suit Orks?
War Record Since Sept 2005
Old Codex 48-20-9 Dark Eldar
New Codex 1-0-0 Dark Eldar
I think Halo covenant dance is a good theme for Kroot perhaps. They kinda sound like a race with unusual, barbaric kind of theme.
To Medic, could you please be a little more specific with the link, or even just the song titles so I can find them.

Orks is probably Rammstein - Fuer Frei (SP?) (Free Fire/Fire at Will in english)
IRON CHEF SCENEY II
My indie has has all kinds of music plaing 24/7
Things like LoTr music, PoTC music, AD/DC, well mostly things like Hans Zimmer-isc
Here are a few others that fit well imo
YouTube - Warhammer 40000 Fanatic
YouTube - Dies Irae, Karl Jenkins
YouTube - Ultramarines Chant
YouTube - Halo Theme (Original, Not the Mjolnir Mix)
YouTube - Halo 2 Soundtrack - Halo Theme Mjolnir Mix
Acually, everything from the Chaos Gate game is perfect 40k, same for everything from the original DoW.

So first post, a homeworld fan.
Then a nightwish fan/rise against fan.
You can't just have your favourite group for the majority of theme tunes lol
And to Konstantine, I really didnt know there is a warhammer movie, its wasnt filmed in USA was it? Regarding the theme, I wanted to stay away from the main halo soundtrack because it can technicaly represent any race, halo theme especialy. However more spcific songs, like "gun pointed at the head of universe", "enough dead heroes" and "Ambient wonders" are a lot more specific in terms of what they could represent.
