Monsters University is the soundtrack album for the 2013 Disney/Pixar animated film of the same name. It was released through Walt Disney Records on June 18, 2013, three days before the movie, and composed by Randy Newman. It is his seventh collaboration with Pixar as composer.[1][2]

The songs "Main Title", "Rise and Shine", and "The Scare Games" feature the drum line from the Blue Devils group "BD Entertainment". The recordings for the percussion tracks were done at Skywalker Ranch,[3] and were written by Blue Devils Percussion Caption Head Scott Johnson.[4]

The songs "Island", by Mastodon, and "Gospel", by MarchFourth Marching Band, are featured during the film but do not appear on the soundtrack. The song "Party Hard" by Andrew W.K. is featured prominently in the teaser trailers but did not appear on the soundtrack or in the film.

Additionally, much of the drum line percussion music was performed by BD Entertainment,[5] a division of BD Performing Arts, which also manages the World Champion Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps.
