We've finally got our first full look/listen at the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 soundtrack.
The long-awaited remaster, is going to have most of our fave songs from the series on it, with Activision confirming to Kotaku (opens in new tab) that only 5 songs won't be in the final release.
There had been some minor confusion as developer Vicarious Visions created the aptly-titled "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2" Spotify playlist recently, and as we reported (opens in new tab) in the initial announcement of the remaster, it looked like a large swath of the OG tunes had made it in. The playlist has everything from "Superman" by Goldfinger and "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" by Primus to Rage Against the Machine's "Guerilla Radio." Yes, I've already downloaded the playlist so I can listen to it on my next run.

The playlist currently only has 18 songs on it, while the soundtracks for the original two Tony Hawk games had a total of 26 songs. Notably absent are "Bring the Noise" by Anthrax and "Public Enemy" and "Cyco Vision" by Suicidal Tendencies (or as me and my sister heard it as children: "Psycho Fishes").

Our very own Ben Tyrer believes Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 remaster can find a new path for the series (opens in new tab).
