I third. The half-tribal, half-techno sounds from MNOG and the soundtrack to the original trilogy (oh, this is turning into a Star Wars-esque "everything as better before" discussion) was music I could really envision these Matoran playing in the village; a real part of BIONICLE culture. My favorite tracks from the movies were the music from Hahli's speech (which also played at the Ko-Koro portion of the Mata Nui explorer), the music that plays when Lhikan's mask is talking to Vakama & co. (which also plays for the Metru Nui Explorer), and the music that plays when the Rahaga catch the Toa Hordika an fly them through their ravaged, foggy city.That being said, I also have a special love for the rock from '06 and onward. As far as music of the time was, LEGO could have chosen stuff a lot worse. I think each song really helped set the tone for the year:Having "Move Along" for late 2006 theme really made me feel cheerful. It told me that, though the Matoran of Voya Nui had suffered, the Toa Inika had arrived to liberate them and save Mata Nui. While the music told me it would be a long fight, I never imagined just how long the quest for the Ignika would be."Creeping in my Soul" was a significantly darker tune, well-fitting for the senario: a Po-Matoran everyman, Dekar, has always lived in fear of the shadowy waters surrounding his small village. When a cursed mask drifts down from above, though, Dekar learns what lives in those shadows are far more terrifying than he could have imagined."Crashed" told a story of noble heroes in a place where nobility was a lost virtue; a place so dark and dangerous it need no name besides "the Pit." But, when every odd was against them, these heroes fought on, because they knew honor and loyalty were stronger than any army. But, even then, no victory is without sacrifice."Gravity Hurts" and "Closer to the Truth" told me stories of a battle all the other battles had led up to: a fight for the very survival of the universe as the Great Spirit's life grew dangerously short. The Toa Nuva, the heroes we had grown to love and look up to for seven years, had to face the possibility of death, and did so boldly, because they had a duty to the Matoran."Bye Bye Babylon" helped 2009's story, which I found to be weaker than the Matoran Universe-based storylines, seem more thrilling. Mata Nui, a character we had learned to honor so much yet seen so little of, was stranded on a parched wasteland where he was known as Great Spirit only to himself. And again, the bold selflessness of heroes - of Toa - would help free the innocent villagers from a race of warlike brutes.I agree! I've never really liked the rock or rap songs either, I would rather listen to the soundtracks/scores. I feel the ambient/electronic/film score music was one of the things that separated Bionicle from the average toy. My personal favourites are from MNOG: the Onu-Koro theme, and especially the underwater theme.
No offense to anybody, and I respect each and all of your personal opinions and tastes, but I really can't stand the rock and roll songs. In my opinion, it's just not Bionicle. I much more prefer the ambient/electronic music that blends in with the cultural/world themed music, because it fits more with the idea of advanced, technological beings living in a natural world.

Either chasing the Takea Shark in MNOLG2, or the ending song of MNOLG. They're happy music. I do love Murky, though.

Cryoshell is always nice; Creeping in my Soul specifically is my favorite of theirs. Move Along by the All-American Rejects is nice, because it's 1) an awesome song and 2) my favorite song of the band's.

My favorites are "Hero" because I think it fits the toa, and "Gravity Hurts" because it really fits the toa in Karda-Nui.

The original movie trilogy has great tracks, and all the songs from 2006 onward were great.

Either Hero or Bye Bye Babylon. Creeping in My Soul is also awesome.
It absorbs a spirit, which it then burns. By waving the flames on its arms, it puts its foes into a hypnotic trance.

In alphabetical order:
Closer To The Truth - Cryoshell, Crashed - Daughtry, the alternative version of Creeping In My Soul - Cryoshell on the Barraki Promo CD, Face Me - Cryoshell, Gravity Hurts - Cryoshell, Move Along - All-American Rejects, and Ride - Presence (credits song for TLR).
Also, I like all of the movie soundtracks.

Definitely the MNOG soundtrack. It just plain screams "BIONICLE".
Gravity Hurts is easily second, followed some ways behind by Crashed and Creeping in my Soul.

If the Kanohi masks are a type of technology and most of the MU citizens are Biomechanical beings then how would a Kanohi mask recognize the difference between a Matoran and a Toa?

[color=#008000;]I probably listen to Gravity Hurts the most, but I do love them all. Oh and the song in the Mahri movie is Crashed by Chris Daughtry and "What it takes to be a hero" is actually called "Hero" by All Insane Kids.[/color]

Basically, all the MNOLG stuff (except for when you're in Po-Koro, that tune always bugs me) and all the Cryoshell stuff. Although I am partial to the Piraka Rap. If they hadn't made a BIONICLE based rap, then I would have. Swag.

"Hero", "Move Along", and "Gravity hurts" are my top three.
A wanderer always walks the lonesome road at some point. always
Tales of the Wanderer
We crawl, on our knees for you,
under, a sky no longer blue,
we sweat, all day long for you.
But we sow, seeds to see us though,
cause sometimes dreams just don't come true,
we wait, to reap what we are due.
Everything I touch turns to Ashes,
...It slips right though my hands

[color=#000080;]I have to go with "Move Along" by the All-American Rejects because that song has motivated me ever since it first came out. Maann the good old days... so much reminiscing .. you guys in BZP loves to do that a lot... makes me feel so old now... [/color]
[color=#000080;]The other songs I like were some songs in the Bionicle MNOG and "Closer to the Truth."[/color]

Not like there is a huge selection but my choice would be a song from my favorite Bionicle movie: Bye Bye Babylon by Cryoshell.
A shame we never got to see the complete Trilogy of that movie.

Oh, man, I don't think I can just pick one favorite. I've always loved the music from MNOLG and the Bohrok Animations. As a kid, Le-Koro was always my favorite, but Onu-Koro and Ga-Koro are also pretty good. And I always liked the music from that one Bohrok-Kal Animation in the scene where the Toa Nuva had lost their elemental powers and were reuniting with each other.
That said, I also really like the movie soundtracks, especially the melancholy piano part heard at the end of the credits in Mask of Light (I'm sure it also plays somewhere in the movie, but I forget exactly where).
Oh, and I just remembered the Chronicler's Company tune from MNOLG! Now I want to go listen to the entire soundtrack; I'm sure there's many tunes I've loved yet forgotten about.
