Plenty of Crush40's old material appeared as unlock-able music tracks in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''. However, while Jun Senoue returned to create a large portion of the game's modern styled remixes, Crush40 didn't make any new songs for the game nor remix any of their old songs themselves. In 2012 they released a 4-track EP titled ''Rise Again'', comprised of 3 new original tracks as well as the aforementioned ''Song of Hope''.

** TheCoverChangesTheMeaning: Their cover of Zebrahead's ''His World''. Originally, it was a fast paced PunkRap song with rebellious and carefree lyrics that perfectly fit Sonic. Crush40's version was slower paced, and had a more epic feel to it. Its lyrics were mysterious and weighty and more befit Shadow.

Their style has generally fallen under the MelodicRock umbrella, combining uplifting, self-empowering vocals with soaring rock riffs and intense solos. They often use elements of HardRock, and guitarist/songwriter Jun Senoue cites many famous rock bands of the 80's as big influences for the group's sound.

* SpeedMetal: Their first Sonic song, "Open Your Heart", is in this style, but they abandoned that mostly for the rest of their repertoire. They revisited it in the song "Through the Fire"

* SpeedMetal: "Open Your Heart" had elements of this, but they dropped that for all the rest of their releases.
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: "Live Life", the ending credits song to ''Sonic & the Black Knight'', is probably the softest this band can get.
