The Matrix: Music from the Motion Picture is one of the two 1999 soundtrack albums from the blockbuster film, The Matrix (the other being The Matrix: Original Motion Picture Score).

The soundtrack included most of the tracks the movie popularized such as Rob Zombie's "Dragula (Hot Rod Herman Remix)" or the "lobby shootout music", actually called "Spybreak!", played by the British big beat duo Propellerheads. It also included a number of songs that were not present in the film.

Tracks missing from the OST

  • The music playing on Neo's headphones ("Dissolved Girl" by Massive Attack) when he is contacted by Trinity.
  • The background music when Neo fights Morpheus in the sparring program (Don Davis' "Bow Whisk Orchestra", combining semi-improvisational drumming, "Lunatic Calm's" mix of "Leave You Far Behind", and Davis' "Switch or Break Show" [an anagram of "Wachowski brothers"]).
  • The music from Night of the Lepus that can be heard from the television set in the Oracles living room is "Begin the Run" written by Jimmie Haskell.
  • The faint music that can be heard when Neo meets the Oracle is of 1930's jazz origin - "Minor Swing" by guitarist Django Reinhardt is followed by composer Duke Ellington's "I'm Beginning to See the Light".
  • A track from "The Eyes of Truth", by the musical project Enigma, was used for the movie's worldwide trailer.
  • A track similar to "The Eyes of Truth" titled "The Conquest of Truth" composed and recorded by Paul Hanson (guitarist) for Music Junkies was used for the DVD main menu.
  • A track titled "(Can't You) Trip Like I Do", a collaboration between the groups Filter and The Crystal Method, was used for the theatrical trailer of the movie. This track can be found on the Spawn soundtrack album.
  • None of the orchestral score in the movie was used in the OST; parts of it received a separate release as The Matrix: Original Motion Picture Score, and low-quality MP3s of much of the remainder is available at Davis' website.
