Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater has been a quietly lucrative nostalgia mine for a couple decades now, and it isn’t just because of the classic controls and levels. Half of the nostalgic value, especially for the first two games, is tied to the licensed music soundtracks. Just ask the band Goldfinger. So it practically goes without saying that fans looking forward to the new remakes will be zeroing in on the tracklist and comparing it to the original. Turns out, not only are many classic songs still included, but the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 soundtrack also includes a ton of new tracks.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Soundtrack Guide

We’re going to break this down into three categories. First, we’ll take a look at all the classic songs returning to the new remakes, then compare that to the handful that didn’t make the cut for, presumably, licensing reasons. Then, we’ll drop the list of new songs, which Activision just released this week. And if you want to just dive in, you can also check out the official Spotify playlist, which we’ve embedded in the article.
