Honourable mentions to Daytona USA, Tony Hawks 2 and the Wrestlefest menu music.


I had forgotten about this and now it's stuck in my head. What a great video game theme! Good shout on Tony Hawks 2 as well, especially with the awesome '96 Quite Bitter Beings'.

I'll add GTA Vice City, San Andreas and that radio station on GTA 3 which played the Scarface soundtrack.
