I'm 99% certain the original composer was Rob Hubbard. He worked for Electronic Arts for a long time and did a lot of their c64 sid chip music. If I am not mistaken, the original sid chip version of this song was written in assembly language.... talk about hard core...

I must say this is a great theme and I'm not easily impressed either. This has got to be one of the most coolest MP3's on this site, however, it doesn't fully grab my attention like some of the other Skate Or Die games' music, even Ski Or Die's music, like the inner tube race was better, plus, what fails to fully make this song memorable is it's guitar! I'm sorry to say but it doesn't grab me out of my seat!

This was a decent old-school cover of the original. Solid stuff for its time, including some beefed up guitar work compared to the SID version. I can see why the guitar isn't prominent here, as it reflects the style of the original. Lead synth at :59 didn't provided a good texture at all, but this was alright.

Well, it's 2006 now (incase you haven't heard) and this remix is still hot as anything. This was one of the first few mixes I downloaded on this site and a couple years later I'm still enjoying it! Really nice work hear, it's an awsome song! (Thank god I'm not undudical...)

Despite some of the lackluster mixing, I actually really like this. Reminds of a song from a late 80's movie where there's a street chase going on or something (those no good mall cops chasing the rad dude on a skateboard who's just all IN YOUR FACE RADICAL). Doesn't age spectacularly, but I think that adds a bit of charm to this one, can't put my finger on why though.

Needs more C64 synth though. MORE.

There is something about this ReMix, but I really don't know what it is. The production, which is usually where a lot of older mixes start to trip up, is off at points to varying degrees, but it has some old-school vibes that allow me to not completely write it off entirely. Not for me, I'm afraid, but I'm sure there are fans of it.

Based on the NES version or not you can totally feel the C64 roots in here, and that's always a good thing. I'd agree that this is a bit basic and repetitive, but if you beefed up the production a little this wouldn't be out of place as one of those Kavinsky type modern-80s-throwback Hotline Blood Dragon groove songs. Definitely feels like skating through an 80s version of the future.
