Pixelitis Picks: The glorious use of licensed music in games

"We all love videogame music very much, but that’s not to say that licensed music is a detriment to a player’s experience.

In fact, when appropriately used within a game, it can be one of the most standout things someone will take away from playing it. Just ask anybody who’s played the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t remember the iconic inclusion of “Superman” by Goldfinger, or perhaps even “Jerry Was a Racecar Driver” by Primus.

Likewise, games like Brütal Legend can be seen utilizing licensed music during specific cutscenes to heighten the intensity of a scene, like using the triumphant “One Shot at Glory” by Judas Priest when kicking off the game’s first wide-scale Stage Battle."
