More about Ron Wasserman
Before creating some of his best-known work for the program Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Wasserman created scores and co-wrote themes for a number of their minor shows as well as the animated X-Men series. The first episode of the show was shown to him one day, and he was instructed to utilize the word “Go” and finish it by the following day. The tune that emerged after two and a half hours was “Go Go Power Rangers,” which serves as the show’s theme song.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Album: A Rock Adventure, a commercially successful concept album that centered his music on a reimagining of the first two episodes of the television show, eventually featured several of his most well-known songs and compositions.
