Ask a cross-section of punk rock music fans how they got into the genre and we guarantee you8217;ll hear the answer 8220;Tony Hawk8217;s games8221; on more than one occasion.
The soundtracks for those games were always absolutely spectacular and exposed people to a music style they may not have discovered otherwise. News that the first two games in the iconic skateboarding series are being remastered got us thinking it could do the same for an entire new generation of gamers.
Just a few days after the Tony Hawk8217;s Pro Skater 1 + 2 re-releases for PS4, PC and Xbox One re-releases were confirmed, we know the tracks that8217;ll accompany all of those sick rail grinds, kick-flips and wipeouts.

There8217;s nothing in the way of new music here, with most of the original tracks from the series returning. However, IGN points out that not all of the songs are present and accounted for. MIA are tracks from Suicidal Tendencies and Anthrax, among others.
Thankfully, while some of the music may be missing, all of the courses and original skaters are back for the remasters, which will be available on the Epic Game Store on September 4. However, they8217;ve all been bestowed with new visuals, models and mechanics that8217;ll befit the current generation of console gaming.
