-One of the early Simpsons episodes had Burns in a battering-ram tank, about to break into the Simpson home because Homer's mom was a fugitive. He put a tape in the deck, and Ride of the Valkyries briefly starts up, before switching over to... I think an ABBA song.

Smithers: "Sorry sir, I must have taped over that".

😁

The soundtrack from Backdraft (very Scottish, bagpipes an' all).
We used the intro from Alexander for our Man o' War campaign.  Most Vangelis is good for campaigning to.
Philip Glass' Anthem from the Powwaqatsi album for a quiet buildup (the troops waiting at dawn...)
John Williams!  I'm running a Cliffhangers campaign currently, and the Raiders march is getting a workout.
Mars, from Holst's Planets suite; you could also use Jupiter for starting out on a journey.
Lots of Star Trek stuff; the clip from Doomsday Machine called 'Kirk Does it Again' is good tension building music, also look at Wrath of Khan, the first clash between Reliant and Enterprise.  'Let them eat static.'

One more: the theme from Aliens when Ripley is watching the Marines getting chewed up on the video feeds, tells Hicks to shut up and strap in, then takes the RV on a little outing...

Queen, "One Vision" (traditionally played by F-16s singlehandedly beating up Middle-Eastern nations)

707, "Megaforce" (because the Good Guys always win, even in the '80s)

Oingo Boingo, "When The Lights Go Out" (goes great with massed artillery)

Oh, and: Anyone who suggests "March of Cambreadth" without suggesting "Tomorrow I Leave For Battle" and "Courage Knows No Bounds" is an ignorant poindexter who needs to keep his trap shut. >:)
