"Stampede" is an instrumental score composed by Hans Zimmer heard on The Lion King: The Legacy Collection. It is heard after Simba roars at a harmless chameleon after Scar teaches him how to work on his roar; this, however, causes a wildebeest stampede occurring across the gorge as the hyenas Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed attempt to catch one of them, but fail to.
This version of "Stampede" does not include the entire composition heard in the finalized version of the score. Instead, the score picks up at the start of the stampede scene and concludes with the musical flourish heard as Mufasa dies. The music played as Simba mourns the death of his father appears in a different score, "Mufasa Dies".
In the musical, this score is titled "Stampede" as well. Like this version of "Stampede", it does not include the score heard as Simba mourns his father but rather the music played during the stampede scene.
- The Legacy Collection includes both the final cue and a demo version of the cue.
- This version of the cue contains a substantially different mix when compared to the older version. The strings are boosted and the chorus is panned differently. As well as this, brass that had originally come from the demo version has been left out in favor of live-recorded brass.
