The Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 soundtrack trades 'Superman' for Skrillex

For better or worse, the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games have been defined by their soundtracks almost as much as their levels and gameplay. After all, who doesn't think of pulling off a sweet kickflip to "Superman" by Goldfinger, or collecting S-K-A-T-E to "Ace of Spades" by Motorhead? If you've been wondering what songs will worm their way into your brain for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, wonder no longer. The full list is below:

Anti-Flag – "Stars and Stripes"
Atmosphere – "Southsiders"
Black Pistol Fire – "Hipster Shakes"

It's definitely a … different flavor than previous Tony Hawk games have had, mixing punk with dubstep and hip-hop. I think, in this news article about songs, it is itself a song that says it best: the times, they are a-changin'.
