The original theme song was going to be performed by Swedish pop group Ace of Base, but the band's label, Arista Records, forced them to pull out because they believed that GoldenEye would be a box office failure. In 2002, a retooled version of their song was released under the new title of The Juvenile.
The score for the film was composed by series newcomer Éric Serra in his sole contribution to the Bond series. Serra's score has been widely criticized and is generally seen as the farthest departure from a traditional Bond score. Serra also composed and sang the end credits song The Experience of Love.
Some of Serra's score was replaced in the final film by the producers with new material from John Altman. Altman's contribution can be heard during the tank chase through St. Petersburg. Serra's original composition can be heard on the soundtrack album titled A Pleasant Drive in St. Petersburg.
One additional song featured in the film but not on the soundtrack; Stand By Your Man by Tammy Wynette. It is performed, off-key and in an exaggerated Russian accent, to comedic effect by Minnie Driver in her role as Irina.
