Tony Hawk 5's Soundtrack Features Punk, Hip-Hop, Skrillex

Music has long been a part of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, which has featured some of the strongest overall licensed soundtracks in gaming. Activision has released the tracklist for the latest entry in the series, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, and you can see for yourself how it stacks up to previous games.

There are more than two dozen songs overall, running from Anti-Flag to Yogi & Skrillex. There are bound to be a few songs that you won't recognize in the list below. Fortunately, the publisher thoughtfully provided links to their official YouTube or SoundCloud channels when possible. It's Friday, so your boss won't mind if you spend the next few hours clicking through and checking it all out. Trust us,

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Sept. 29, with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions following on Nov. 10. For more information on the game, be sure to check out our extensive preview.

 

Our Take
I'd say there's a conspicuous lack of Goldfinger and Primus here, but I'm looking forward to a new batch of songs getting stuck in my head, too. I could count on two things after a Tony Hawk session back in the day: Seeing skating lines in everything around me for the next few hours, and humming "Superman" for entirely too long.
