Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 Soundtrack: Orginal music confirmed, Goldfinger, Dead Kennedys, rumours, news, THPS, & more
Welcome to the soundtrack of a generation – THPS 1+2 will have original tracks on release!
When it comes to games with amazing soundtracks, the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise is comfortably up there.
The first two games were legendary and gave players songs that quickly became the soundtrack of their lives. But what will the THPS remastered soundtrack be like?
Here is the lowdown on all the news & rumours surrounding the soundtrack for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 so far, and a glimpse at the artists making a return.
Original soundtrack songs confirmed
Anyone who has played the original games will be well aware that the soundtrack is full of addictive songs that add to the replayability of the game, but will these songs be making a return to the remastered version?
According to the main man himself Tony Hawk, the answer is yes. The legendary pro skater confirmed it himself on Twitter. He tweeted with excitement about the return of “Original maps, original skaters and songs from the original soundtrack”
Which is a sigh of relief for fans of the original games hoping it will stay true to the source. It also seems likely that although a lot of the original songs will be included, there will also be some more updated music mixed in.
The first game of the franchise was released in 1999, so it isn’t a surprise that some more recent music might be included. However, the nostalgia will still be there for long-term THPS fans.
A Spotify playlist has been released featuring some of the original tunes. They include:
- Police Truck – Dead Kennedys
- Superman – Goldfinger
- Jerry Was A Race Car Driver – Primus
- New Girl – The Suicide Machines
- Here and Now – The Ernies
- Euro-Barge – The Vandals
- Blood Brothers – Papa Roach
- Guerilla Radio – Rage Against The Machine
- Pin the Tail on the Donkey – Naughty by Nature
- You – Bad Religion
- When Worlds Collide – Powerman 5000
- No Cigar – Millencolin
- May 16 – Lagwagon
- Subculture – Styles of Beyond
- Heavy Metal Winner – Consumed
- Evil Eye – Fu Manchu
- Five Lessons Learned – Swingin’ Utters
That isn’t every track from the original two games, but with some potentially not on Spotify it doesn’t mean the full original soundtrack won’t be included in the remastered game.
Fans will be excited to know that the game is already available to pre-order right now, and the release date will be on 4 September.
