Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 - Remastered launches on September 4th, and features almost all of the songs we know and love from the original soundtracks. Today, Activision confirmed that a ton of artists who weren't previously featured in either game have been added to the remastered soundtrack, and there are some truly excellent additions.
No less than 37 new artists have been added to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, including the likes of Skepta , A Tribe Called Quest, Machine Gun Kelly, The Ataris, and more. They join classic acts like Rage Against The Machine, Fu Manchu, and Dead Kennedys to form an incredible blend of 90's punk, rap and hip-hop to more contemporary tracks. Take a look at the gorgeous poster below for a full rundown of who's joining the party.

When Activision and developer Vicarious Visions announced Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 earlier this year, it was revealed that the game would be missing just five tracks from the original soundtracks. These are: 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.
Vicarious Visions Chief Operating Officer Simon Ebejer confirmed to GAMINGbible at the time that not every song from the original soundtracks would be returning because of licensing issues, with the rights for some songs being quite a lot harder to secure - or even to track down.
"With regards to trouble getting all the songs... you know, it's been 21 years," he explained. "Music licensing has changed in that much time, so some of the licensers can't even be tracked down. But we've done a great job getting as much of the original soundtrack as we possibly can. So I think that fans are gonna be so stoked. They're gonna get to hear their favourite tracks from the original and I'm really excited."
The Tony Hawk's games have always sat among my favourite soundtracks in gaming. With these new additions, I think the remaster might just boast the best and most substantial selection of tracks yet. I can't wait to get my hands and ears on this one.
