** From Those Two Episodes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXXBEbpJous "Infantile Dependence, Adult Dependency"]], the official theme song of apocalyptic mental breakdowns.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuI8rbR39iY "I. Shinji"]]. It sets the perfect mood for the scene it is used in, neatly capturing Shinji's inner turmoil as he is denial over the fact it is his destiny to be Eva-01's pilot while driving home the point he cannot achieve anything by running away from his fate.

* The cover of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1ruDaAthnU "Fly Me to the Moon"]] from the ending, while not as action-oriented, is very beautiful. The version of "Fly Me to the Moon" that plays after [[spoiler:Kaworu's death]] in Episode 24 stands out from the rest because it's the only ending to not have any singing, whereas the rest are all sung by different people.

* The first "Angel Attack" theme. The menacing riff drones on and on, and the rest of the melody is incredibly dissonant and eerie. A classic evil song that must be heard: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pk39PR31j6g ANGEL ATTACK]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4bVZX77ibM "Rei I"]] is a really chilling and beautiful piano piece. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlL2Soci6eY "Rei III"]] puts the same melody to a fusion of orchestra and hard rock, making for a powerful mix.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrX75bJtaxA "Jesus Bleibet Meine Freude",]] because of the moment in End that it highlighted: [[spoiler:the moment after Shinji kills the human race, he comes to realize that the reality he's been living in is one that he alone created for himself]].

* On the lighter side, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSULVLdCo58 Misato's theme]] is a pretty cheerful and upbeat tune, perfect for starting the day in a good mood.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCLoNOYcVQU "Komm, süsser Tod",]] dudes. Not only is it catchy as hell and surprisingly touching, the dichotomy of the pleasant tune and painful lyrics gives it an ambiguity that makes it a ''perfect'' match for the scene it plays in.

* If there were ever a more perfect song to [[spoiler:reject Human Instrumentality to]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLm-tu1ye1Y "Expansion of Blockade"]] has got to be it. Shinji's WhatYouAreInTheDark introspection [[spoiler:saves all of humanity]], and it's absolutely stunning.

* The Rebuild 1.0 OST has three bonus tracks sung by Misato's seiyuu, Creator/KotonoMitsuishi. Talk about BreakingTheFourthWall... though this has been going on ''long'' before ''Rebuild'', and not just with Misato's voice actor. Even Creator/MegumiOgata (Shinji's VA) did a version of "Cruel Angel's Thesis".
* From the end of Mayumi's scenario in ''[=2nd=] Impression'' is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pAdgmzL8gE Kimi wa Kimi ni Umareta Wake]], Not only is it sung by Mayumi's seiyuu, Creator/KyokoHikami, but the lyrics also imply that it is actually Mayumi's ImageSong. For added awesomeness factor, the song is actually performed by the characters in-universe! Specifically, Shinji is the cellist, Toji is the guitarist (taught by Aoba), Kensuke is the keyboardist and Mayumi is the singer.
