10 Musicians Who Hid Original Tracks In Your Favourite Games

Video game soundtracks are arguably one of the most under-appreciated pieces of music in entertainment. While you’re sitting there blasting and slashing your evenings away, the sound design and background music do such a good job of immersing you in the virtual world you’re inhabiting that you often forget that they’re there at all. In fact the most memorable soundtracks are often full of licensed songs that you’ve probably already heard, with games like Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 being famous for raising a generation on punk rock.

But what about original songs and soundtracks, written and performed solely for the purpose of complimenting an action packed video game? There are of course many of these written by people who sadly don’t get the recognition they deserve, but there are also a surprising amount of famous musicians and bands that have donated their talent to various games throughout the years.

I wish this site would just ban articles that are numbered lists. This is so fucking bad.

Amen to that. I usually skip them entirely, but I was interested enough in the subject to at least come in here and check out the comments. (Nothing much yet, which is fine, really.) I have not clicked on the article itself.

True, what is worse is that not many of those are not very 'hidden' by the artist.

50 cent music hidden in a 50 cent game well call me shocked! Bowie writes entire soundtrack for a game its as hidden as Waldo on a page full of Waldos.

Sad thing is I fall for these click bait ad-ridden articles all the time expecting there to be something interesting in there and every time I'm disappointed. I still find my self clicking on the links to other interesting links at the bottom of the page, as if drawn to them by magic.

Psi-Ops was an amazing game for its time. Loved it!
