So far most of the articles concerning Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 haven’t been all that nice, due to the graphics shown not being up to current generation expectations. Regardless of how the came play is or how it looks, the one redeeming factor in any Tony Hawk game has always been the music. There are sometimes where I would just start a free skate level and let my character idle there while I did something else in my room, just to listen to the music. In later games you were able to turn off certain songs if you didn’t like them, so you could customize your own playlist.

Recently the Ride channel listed all of the songs available to listen to while playing.

  • Anti-Flag – “Stars and Stripes” 
  • Atmosphere – “Southsiders” 
  • Black Pistol Fire – “Hipster Shakes” 
  • Bully – “Milkman”
  • Cloud Nothings – “I’m Not Part of Me” 
  • Cold Cave – “A Little Death to Laugh” 
  • Connie Price and the Keystones – “International Hustler” 
  • Crass Mammoth – “All 149” 
  • Deaf Poets – “Degenerate Mind” 
  • Death From Above 1979 – “Virgins” 
  • Deer Mother – “When the Wolves Come Out” 
  • Doomtree – “Mini Brute” 
  • Family Force 5 – “Raised by Wolves” 
  • Four Year Strong – “Go Down in History” 
  • Icon for Hire – “Cynics & Critics” 
  • Killer Be Killed – “Wings of Feather and Wax” 
  • New Politics – “Everywhere I Go” 
  • Plague Vendor – “Black Sap Scriptures” 
  • Ratatat – “Cream on Chrome” 
  • Royal Blood – “Little Monster”
  • State Champs – “Secrets” 
  • Temples – “Shelter Song” 
  • The Orwells – “Who Needs You” 
  • The Sheds – “Bad Things Are Bad” 
  • Yogi and Skrillex (feat. Pusha T, Moody Good, and TrollFace) – “Burial”

There’s a good amount of songs available to enjoy, and even though they may seem underground to their respective groups they’re probably pretty popular. Personally I’m only familiar with Anti-Flag and Atmosphere, so the rest of the music will be all new to me.
