Activision has revealed the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 remaster soundtrack, and some of the classics are missing.
Talk of the game’s soundtrack emerged after Activision released an 18-track playlist on Spotify – and fans noticed some songs included in the original soundtracks were missing.

Kotaku then confirmed only five songs that featured in the first two Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games won’t be included in the remasters:
- Cyco Vision by Suicidal Tendencies
- Committed by Unsane
- Bring the Noise by Anthrax & Public Enemy
- B-Boy Document ’99 by The High & Mighty
- Out With The Old by Alley Life
Of note, Vilified by Evenrude, and Screamer by Speedealer are in the game, but don’t make the playlist because neither song is on Spotify.
The music was a huge part of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater’s appeal (Superman by Goldfinger! Blood Brothers by Papa Roach!), and it looks like Activision has done a good job licensing as many of the tracks as possible for inclusion in the remaster.
However, it’s a shame Bring the Noise falls by the wayside, given it’s iconic status as a collaboration between heavy metal band Anthrax and hip-hop group Public Enemy.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 combines remastered versions of the much-loved skating games into one package, and is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 4th September. It’s the work of Vicarious Visions, the studio recently responsible for the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing remasters, and like those games, it takes the original experiences and punts them screaming into the present day with a thoroughly modern visual makeover.
