When you drop into Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 for the first time on September 4th, expect the skateboarding culture’s latest soundtrack for shredding to ride alongside classic hits from the original titles.
Thirty-seven new songs spanning across five decades of music are joining the soundtrack to the latest addition of this storied skateboarding franchise. These tracks amplify a more diverse sound of the ever-growing culture of skateboarding, from songs that showcase the latest innovators in hip-hop, punk, and garage rock across an international stage, to old-school 80s rap and 90s ska punk.
In the words of a wise commonwealth-born industrial philosopher, this is what it’s like when worlds collide:
Don’t Just Read – Listen and Watch THPS History in the Making
Rather than just tell you what new songs were going to be in the game, some of the artists were part of a must-watch reveal of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 soundtrack, courtesy of a concert presented by Noisey.
Together – within a virtual concert environment– Machine Gun Kelly dropped a taste of his latest pop punk project, Rough Francis punched in their punk hits, and Merkules and CHAII brought the heat with their bars that represent the ever-growing hip hop scene.
The Birdman himself is also keen to add to the quintessential skater soundtrack he championed since the first game: “Music has always been such a core element of THPS so I’m excited about the new music being added to the soundtrack of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2. It was fun to be a part of the creative process and be able to include a few of my favorites in the soundtrack along with the other new songs that I believe will resonate with the new generation like the original soundtracks did.”
And if you think this concert was just a soundtrack reveal on top of some killer sets, then you may be in for some awesome surprises, especially if you are amped for THPS skaters both new and returning.
