It’s been 21 years since the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, and 20 years since its follow-up. I don’t remember every level or skater from those games – but I do remember their soundtracks.
Those early entries are linked indelibly to that time – and to skater culture specifically – because of the jams they included. Happily, almost every track is back for the upcoming Pro Skater 1 & 2 remaster alongside dozens of other tracks from the era.
That means you can listen back to THPS classics like Goldfinger’s Superman and Papa Roach’s Blood Brothers while skanking to newer additions from Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake and Billy Talent.
