Fans of the first two Tony Hawk games know full well the importance the soundtracks played in the enjoyment and now classic appeal of them. Now the soundtrack for the upcoming Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD -- which combines those games, and will throw in the third as DLC later -- is revealed. If you're biting your nails in anticipation, I'll say right away there's good news and bad news.
The good: you've got the essential "Superman" by Goldfinger, "Bring The Noise" by Anthrax & Chuck D, "When Worlds Collide" by Powerman 5000, and "No Cigar" by Millencolin.
The bad: it's missing "Here and Now" by The Ernies, "Jerry Was A Race Car Driver" by Primus, "New Girl" by Suicide Machines, and "Guerilla Radio" by Rage Against the Machine.
The full list, including some new tracks:
“Bring the Noise” Anthrax featuring Chuck D
“When Worlds Collide” Powerman 5000
“Heavy Metal Winner” Consumed
“May 16” Lagwagon
“No Cigar” Millencolin
“You” Bad Religion
“The Bomb” Pigeon John
“We the People” Lateef the Truthspeaker
“Marathon Mansion!” Pegasuses-XL
“Teenage Blood” Apex Manor
“Please Ask for Help” Telekinesis
“Flyentology (Cassettes Won’t Listen Remix)” El-P featuring Trent Reznor
“USA” Middle Class Rut
On the topic of new songs, lead designer Patrick Dwyer says, "When you hear our soundtrack, it’s not like any of these songs belong to a certain time period. We wanted songs that sounded like they could have been in the old game, but had come out after that game released."
