* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyJdZV-GXY0 Sundowner's Garden]], the background theme for World Marshal's feudal Japanese reception area. It's more difficult to identify during the Caution and Evasion loops, but when the Alert loop takes over, players are treated to the unmistakeable sound of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajtCaMtPefA Edo Castle's theme]] from ''[[VideoGame/GanbareGoemon Ganbare Goemon 2]]''... but instead of the old Famicom chiptune, it's one ''hell'' of a remix with electric guitar and traditional Japanese instruments.

Every single Franchise/MetalGear game owes a great deal of its awesomeness to the incredible music.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aHQnDTd1y4 Snake Eater]], the theme song of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', managing to be both a parody and a spectacular example of 60s spy tunes. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C9niRuUb5g Japanese version]] is great as well. As part of a promotional soundtrack for ''The Phantom Pain'', Donna Burke did covers of several of the vocal themes throughout the ''Solid'' series, resulting in a brilliant [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIHUoAs5OUE funky, bass-heavy remix of the song]].

* The quiet piano version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTblw_-NGO8 Snake Eater]] also qualifies. It's a good callback to the [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3 game of the same name]], the part of the game where the flashback scenes tend to take place (it plays "Snake Eater" if you take too long), and in general has sort of a wistful, flashbacky feel to it.

* As with "Rules of Nature", all of the battle themes for the bosses start off as instrumentals in the game, only to gain vocals and become {{Image Song}}s about the characters at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysmPa2RwAa4&t=17m17s perfectly-timed cues]] when the final phase of the fight starts. And they sure do put the '''metal''' in ''Franchise/MetalGear''.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYEK_yvIWas Midge Ure's cover of]] [[AwesomeMusic/DavidBowie "The Man Who Sold the World"]] plays during the opening credits. It sounds a lot like the original while adding a MetalGear edge and ethereal sound to it.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f00OQVn-Hbo "Way To Fall"]], the ending theme of ''[=MGS3=]'' by Starsailor. Easily up there with several of the ''SilentHill'' themes, if not the most fitting ending theme ever for a game. On a related note: Kojima originally wanted two songs by Music/DavidBowie, "Space Oddity" and "Ashes to Ashes", to play during the ending.

* During all the killing the [=AIs=] are capable of, they seem to really have a fascination for Music/TheCarpenters "Sing". No, more like Kojima seems to like the song, since it plays quite a few times, becomes a way to give the game's message focus, and plays during part of the end credits.

* "Elegia" by New Order from the E3 2015 trailer manages to convey the ominous tensions of TheEighties, the game's dark undertones and Big Boss' final descent all at once.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY5y60JZ7zU "Fall of Mother Base"]]. The song that plays during the destruction of Mother Base is a darker version of Peace Walker's Main Theme that captures the feeling of losing your comrades and watching everything you've built fall in front of your eyes.
