There’s an art to planning, shooting, and then editing an action sequence. Not only is there choreography and shot strategy involved, but music is also a crucial component that gives the scene its power. 

The right background music can enhance the action happening on-screen, but the wrong music can produce the opposite effect. Since every adrenaline-filled moment in your project deserves music of equal caliber, song selection is key.

Fortunately, our music team has optimized Soundstripe’s search and filter functions so that you can find exactly what you’re looking for in five minutes or less, on average. This helps to make the song search and licensing process more streamlined and deadline-friendly.

If you’re interested in building an action-packed soundtrack, this blog will point you in the direction of the top playlists and songs from our library. If you like what you hear and want to learn more, we’ll also share tips on navigating our music catalog on your own. 

So without further ado, let’s get into it.  

4 action-packed playlists from Soundstripe

Royalty free action music isn’t limited to just one genre. The right music for your project can ultimately be any song that matches the energy and pace of the on-screen action. (It’s really as simple as that.)

Maybe you’re shooting an intense fight scene and need music that will build in intensity until the underdog finally overpowers his or her opponent. Maybe you’re shooting a training montage — think any of the Rocky films — and need music that energizes the audience. 

Whatever the case, music is an integral part of any action scene for good reason: It’s effective. 

Since there are so many different types of action music, we’re sharing four curated playlists with a variety of action-packed songs to choose from:

Action and Sport

Good news: If you like one of the songs in any of these playlists, there’s a way to find more music just like it. By selecting the “Similar Songs” icon beside your favorites, you’ll generate a dropdown list of five more song recommendations just like them.  

So instead of starting your search from scratch again, you can simply find more options with a single click.
