‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2’ Has an Absolutely Legendary Soundtrack

Evan Romano

From Men's Health

  • A remastered version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 is being released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in September.

  • This means an upgraded game, some strong nostalgia, and that same INCREDIBLE SOUNDTRACK.

  • We've got every song included for you just below, from Goldfinger to Rage Against The Machine.

Whether you played the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater for Nintendo 64, Sony PlayStation, or the Sega Dreamcast, one thing's for certain: you've got lots of memories. But even above the gameplay—revolutionary for its time!—you probably remember the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater soundtrack. And with the game being relaunched and remastered this fall (a new version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 will be released for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 4), it's time to think about just how awesome that soundtrack is once again.

The nostalgia is about to start flying back. With some of the most memorable punk rock, alternative, and hip-hop choices of the '90s, the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater soundtrack has become something of a cult legend. All of these songs are so recognizable as being part of the game's lore; sure, the pop punk/ska-facing music of Goldfinger is more than well-known on its' own, but it's also hard to hear "Superman" (an absolute, unquestoned jam!) without thinking about dropping into a halfpipe and grinding a rail.

Anyone interested in getting back on the board for the remastered Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 can already start getting ready. The game is available for pre-order, and you can check out the new version of the ever-popular Warehouse level on Jack Black's YouTube channel, Jablinski Games (Also, it's Jack Black, so, watch it regardless.)
