When initially released on VHS, the English dub had an entirely new score composed by Rory McFarlane. This score was replaced with the original Japanese score when it was released on DVD. A soundtrack CD of the alternate score was released in the UK by Demon Records in 1995.
The original rock-centric 23 track score composed by Rory McFarlane not present on the US or Japanese versions combines rock, electronica and ambient styles. Because of the more charged nature of the music in the UK edition score it is considered to be better suited to the ultra violent, dark and stylish atmosphere of the anime than the original, more pop like, Japanese score. Due to Manga Entertainment, UK losing the rights to the Cyber City series this edition of the score is unavailable on western DVD releases and remains available only on the old VHS versions from the mid nineties
Cyber City Oeda 808 is used in the music video "Innocence" for the Dubstep/Drum and Bass group "Nero".
