Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie

Snap's "The Power"

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is the quintessential 1990s property, so it only makes sense that the reboot has a ton of reverence for all of the Power Rangers goodness that characterized that decade. On that note, during the credits for the new Power Rangers movie, a remixed version of Snap's"The Power" plays in truly badass fashion. This song choice is particularly notable, because "The Power" played a prominent role on the soundtrack for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie back in 1995. Don't act like you don't miss all of that great 1990s hip hop.
