Lastly, that driving Les Claypool bassline is not only tremendous, but it brings to mind Claypool’s work on the South Park opening theme song which happened to be on the same cultural wavelength as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.
Bring the Noise by Anthrax & Public Enemy
If you’re anything like me, this song will forever be in your head due to how many times you played the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 demo and happily heard this track play over and over.
Yet again, though, part of what makes this song so special is that it represents two styles of music and two groups that were independently popular amongst teenagers who flocked to the THPS games.
It’s a great collaboration that proves to offers more than enough gameplay drive.
Guerilla Radio by Rage Against the Machine
You could easily make the argument that “Guerilla Radio” stands alongside “Superman” as arguably the definitive early Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater song. Actually, the biggest argument against its status as such is the fact that it was incredibly popular even outside of the Tony Hawk soundtrack.
