* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJW_ldC7sUA Near's Theme]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuYTEhywjIk Mello's Theme]] are simply brilliant, like L's. A little bonus Awesome: play Near's Theme and L's first theme at the same time. The themes compliment each other well and seem to echo at times, the way L and Near echo each other. Near's theme uses more "modern"-sounding instruments than L's; a very synthetic keyboard instead of classical piano, much more overdriven guitar, etc. This, combined with the similar structure and melody, helps create the feeling that Near isn't just similar to L he's the next generation of the same character.
** Not just that. L's Theme contains two sections repeating, each with a distinct time signature and orchestration. The first uses a very unusual 7/8 time signature and a piano piece, while the second uses the more common 3/4 time signature and a rousing electric guitar beat. Near's theme exclusively uses the 7/8 section, contrasting to the 3/4 signature of Mello's theme. A nice way to represent the two sides of L: the cold, rational side and the ambitious, emotional side.

* Also, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPF3vj2r9jE Death Note Theme]] is just as awesome, maybe even more. By the way, this is a fragment of ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dies_Irae Dies Irae]]'', and this hymn also inspired many other great pieces of music, including [[Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart Mozart's]] Requiem. The few times we hear it in its entirety in the anime, it's always chilling. The most memorable is when Higuchi is finally put into a corner, and you realize that he's utterly ''fucked''. It starts off with the OminousLatinChanting as the police blockade the highway, gets a bit more intense when it's revealed that Aizawa and Ide organized it without L's orders, reaches the peak of its crescendo when L turns the spotlight from his helicopter on Higuchi, and ends with Higuchi spinning out and ending up with his back against a literal wall.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYSJUoBI8C0 When Love Comes"]], Rem's song. It doesn't even sound like it would be from a Death Note musical, but instead the credits of a movie.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrI7tOhoVzA Hurricane]], the Act 1 finale song in which Light makes the decision to use the Death Note to cleanse the world. It perfectly captures Light's thoughts from shock to resolve and a desire to bring retribution to create a better world. And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOh7MrKFUuY a karaoke version exists!]]

* TheMusical has some cool songs, such as:
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9g1AMgLO7bQ Only Human]]", a duet between Rem and Ryuk, singing about how pathetic they think humanity is.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4Xg_vGfKl8 "Playing His Game"]], a duet between L and Light, is pretty awesome, too. Especially if you're a Lawlight shipper.

** The songs Japanese band Music/MaximumTheHormone did for the second opening and closing credits.
** Nightmare did a great job too.

** Don't forget L's theme ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uUVX376U4M A]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlGUYT_zk5o B]]).
** Special mention also must go to "Domine Kira".

* The two [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkXw1iBgzoY opening]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGQAjAjsZNo themes]] are all kinds of awesome, especially the second one. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkzunNYOXzw What's Up People!]] is quite likely the most metal and hardcore anime opening to date. With its opening whispers it turns into a roar of power that would rip the ears off of anyone expecting a radio friendly j-pop song. It then proceeds to laugh mercilessly as it bleeds them out culminating with a series of frantic screams that leave you grasping for air. Maximum The Hormone somehow managed to make Death Note more badass. That deserves a fucking medal.
