I associate it with Transformers so its amusing to me when I hear it in G.I. Joe.
I dont think we will ever know unless some one wants to put the time into finding out who did it and who started production first.
I honestly think it might have been the base that some one was commish'd to just make some generic music that could fit a few shoes.
G.I. joe had it's own music that Transformers took.
Sunbow used lots of the same generic music in just about all its shows.You can hear some of it in Jem, Spiderman and his amazing friends and the Hulk cartoon of that era.
It was Destro. In "Cold Slither," it was revealed he had built a machine that wrote rock songs.
All the music in the first season was definitely written for the show. There is heavy use of the main theme in the score, as well as the Autobot and Decepticon themes.
I believe all the music introduced in the second season, which has a more epic orchestral sound, was taken from GI Joe.
And of course, all the third season music was obviously unique to the show, with it's Vince DiCola influence.
It could also be possible.For example the track in which Optimus and others play basketball in "The master builders"has something of a military march,and seems much more appropriated for G.I. Joe.
I think it was just stock music that Sunbow had for all of its stuff. Some , mostly transitional, music was show exclusive, but other stuff, like when Jazz would listen to the very generic rock, was stock.
I believe Transformers borrowed some from G.I. Joe and I know that in the G.I. Joe Movie, tracks were borrowed from Transformers. The shows had the same composers so they could've pulled whatever music they thought was appropriate from a single library.
GI Joe came first, and yes, music was reused. I think they probably reused some music from TF in GI Joe later.
Music was definitely shared with these shows. The GI Joe episode, Operation Mind Menace was the one I definitely heard a Transformers track. Don't know the title but the theme was perilous. Funny thing about that episode in particular was that the prominent Joes in that story, Airborne and Flash were voiced by Peter Cullen and Frank Welker.
