* Interestingly, according to the poll in ''beatmania THE FINAL'' website, the most popular song during 5-key era is not "20, November," but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XnRfTdxd1U super highway]] by nouvo nude. This song is included in ''beatmania IIDX 13 [=DistorteD=]''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgoI7ML2JoQ HELL SCAPER]] by L.E.D. LIGHT-G, originally from GOTTAMIX. With high speed gabba with senseless psychedelic animations, it's a 2-minute rave!.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zliubqahaZM RED ZONE]] by Tatsuya Shimizu and Naoki Maeda. First appeared in Beatmania IIDX RED. Seems to have [[RedZoneRemixVid REALLY taken off]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6x0UlEtU4To on Nico Nico Douga.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwqcKGW3Bg8 Injection Of Love]] by Music/AkiraYamaoka and Sana, from ''iFUTURELIST''. It appeared first in IIDX RED.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmJtBnK3OfA HORIZON]] on IIDX RED by kors k and Lia. Song is more Trancecore than Happy Hardcore though.
* Ageha, by Ryu*. SO MEMETICALLY ARRANGED! Even spawned memes using the beat of the song itself, called [[Memes.TeamFortress2 GentleMentleMen]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQXK-EJNvUk Piano Concerto no. 1 "Anti-Ares" (known as "Scorpion Fire")]] by virkato. It is a full, 8 minute long piano concerto composed for this game, and it is fantastically written. It is unlocked as the final extra stage.

[[folder: 12: HAPPY SKY ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCEL__H9678 Scripted Connection=>]] from ''IIDX Happy Sky'' is an epic 5 1/2-minute techno track, with a very unique gimmick: the Normal version fades into the Hyper version, the Hyper version fades into the Another version, and the Another version fades in from the Hyper version--put all three versions together for the aforementioned full version.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5oxyxUMNa4 Apocalypse ~dirge of swans~]] is both beautiful and sad and, within context of the Zektbach world, horrifying. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDelkvExKTg full version]] more than deserves a listen as well.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvGRj77EAOo smooooch]] was so famous in NicoNicoDouga, people made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZsdTpWDqEk different]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoIXKja4Kqg variations]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t4BcKtcBuc of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWE1nFtVbVk it]]

[[folder: 17: SIRIUS ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4N4IF4Je2Q Bad Maniacs]] by kors k as teranoid. A difficult hardcore song with lyrics spoken in a feminine computer voice about killing and/or fucking you. '''"We are... ''[[PrepareToDie playing to die!]]"'''''
** "How much do you hate me now? That is not enough. I ?????? you. We will be back to ???? again soon."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-0ZAmKx_Ec Raison d'etre ~Kousa suru shukumei~]] by Zektbach, from beatmania IIDX 17 SIRIUS. It's pretty much Tomosuke doing a ShoutOut to himself.
** Pretty much anything Tomosuke does under his Zektbach alias applies to this.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P587JPp46IA She is my wife]] by Super Star Mitsuru, aka TAG. [[MemeticMutation Notable]] for the hilarious background video (shown in the link) where TAG, dressed in a campy superhero outfit with large sunglasses and feathers, dances with dj TAKA, L.E.D, Ryu*, DJ Yoshitaka, and kors k in an extremely fabulous fashion.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wr8Vf_uclGM Live version]] performed at AOU 2011, now with even more hilarious cardboard cutout of Ryu* holding a boom box.

[[folder: 18: Resort Anthem ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5cnqOoQTUc Dances with Snow Fairies]] by Dr Honda from Resort Anthem. One of RA's boss songs, and it definitely sounds the part.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7PDvwvkZBk Shakunetsu -Beach-Side-Bunny-]] the [[BonusBoss OMES]] from Resort Anthem.
* From the same composer of "Scripted Connection =>", we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lx0Ft81eBJQ ANTHEM LANDING]], a six-minute Latin/eurodance track that serves as ''Resort Anthem''[='=]s Extra Stage. Like SC=>, the track is divided up into Normal/Hyper/Another sections.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: 19: Lincle ]]

[[folder: 20: tricoro ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onZX0-Xvajg GRADIUS 2012]] from ''tricoro'', which has a similar premise to "GRADIUS -FULL SPEED-" but is more uptempo and features a neat scratching section in the middle.
* Tricoro has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2o9TlCFApOQ Illegal Function Call]]. It's U1's first IIDX-specific song, and features a [[RemakeCameo video full of callbacks to the 5-key era]].
* ''tricoro'' brings in Nekomata Master as one of the new sound directors, and the system music he makes is awesome. For two examples, try the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BwVQ_jZVEE title theme]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pWBkLT87sM the music select theme.]]
** Nekomata Master also brings in new playable tracks, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8EQF54WMmA Portal]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9OIcjevrn0 The LIMIT BURST theme]], played on the song select when you unlock a [[BonusBoss LIMIT]] [[{{Crossover}} BURST]] song.
** The ''beatmania IIDX'' [[BonusBoss LIMIT BURST]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROqIWaj-Ybs Sol Cosine Job 2]], by hardcore musician DJ Technorch. You know you're in for a brutal challenge when the song starts with [[/folder]]

[[folder: "Good evening, [[Engrish or ]]
[[PrepareToDie die]]!"]]
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFga_Di_DGA Long version now available!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcUn2lp9-gA New Decade IIDX Edition]], the ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution X2'' LIMIT BURST. It's a longer version of "New Decade" from DDR X2[[note]]to be more accurate, it's a cut of the extended version of New Decade[[/note]]. And if you hate the DDR version's [[GimmickLevel tempo]] [[FakeDifficulty changes]], fear not: The IIDX version's charts are all constant-BPM! Also, ''[[SampledUp kakkoi~]]''
* The LEGEND CROSS series of boss songs, aka [[XMeetsY "songs from one Style meet songs from another Style]]:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSHiv9Ymp2A CONCEPTUAL]], by Sota Fujimori.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGzdID22uM0 S!ck]] by kors k (under his Eagle alias), which features vocals from "Rising in the Sun", as well as samples from other kors k songs.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3t1Vp1CrB4 SYNC-ANTHEM]] by Tatsh, with Kanako Hoshino on vocals. It's "ANTHEM LANDING" meets "RED ZONE" meets "Wise Up".
* From Ω-ATTACK:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuOr7rd14I8 Kasoukuukan no Tabibitotachi]], or "Travelers of Virtual Space" as displayed on the LED arcade marquee. Yep, it's another extended Tatsh song...but wait! This time, instead of Normal/Hyper/Another, the song is split between Single and Double mode. Talk about a clever trick to get people to play Double mode.
** The boss of Sector A, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywKdaqh_bX4 Torikago no Houou]], a collaboration between L.E.D. and Yuuhei Satellite, the latter of which is well-known for ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' arranges.
** The boss of Sector B and the FinalBoss of Omega Attack itself, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPp57blzIcQ Proof of the existence]].
* From Our War of the Worlds:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpy06SgvT80 VEGA]], [=REDALiCE=]'s first instrumental BEMANI song.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07ZP9-6SpnY New Lights]] by kors k.
* Although FLOWER appeared in [[{{jubeat}} three]] [[VideoGame/ReflecBeat other]] [[PopNMusic games]] first, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsitSOl8IQM IIDX version]] has been slightly modified, sounding more like something you'd hear at a club.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: 21: SPADA ]]

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_nUWkkTD0c select BGM]], once again by Nekomata Master.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENt7rkXPbLg rainbow guitar weeps]] by dj TAKA, a SequelSong of sorts to "rainbow flyer" from ''8th Style''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_NzA6qo14k I will be back]] marks the triumphant return of SUPER STAR 満-MITSURU-. Not only is the song good, but the BGA features MITSURU ''saving the world from an incoming giant meteoroid!''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iF1LHqkKDl0 INSOMNIA]] by the Jakarta Funk Brothers, one of the few funky kota songs (as the artist name suggests) in the series.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48nqSy8cB8g Miracle 5ympho X]] by USAO, which features machinegun ''notes'' halfway through the song.
--> Are you ready? ''(clickclick)'' '''MACHINEGUN!''' ''([[MostWonderfulSound BANGBANGBANGBANGBANGBANGBANGBANGBANGBANG BANG BANG BANG]])''
* The Spada✝leggendaria [[BossWarningSiren select]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOEa9XIasmQ&t=13s theme]], perfectly fitting of the fact that you're about to face one of the game's boss songs.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Console Versions ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjH3ON1ylkw Go Beyond!!]] by Ryu* vs Sota, from ''IIDX: Distorted'' Rates up there as one of the hardest songs in the game, but probably one of the most awesome songs as well. Wound up appearing in EMPRESS arcade, as a revival.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJUYzxb4QGc quell ~the seventh slave~]] by dj TAKA vs DJ Yoshitaka, also from Distorted CS. Has a special [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bn4qg8X8YVM another]] mix, too.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkV6sBLPDv4 Saturn]] from ''DJ TROOPERS'', which would go on to appear as an unlock in the arcade version of ''tricoro''.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVJv7DoPExg DoLL]] from ''IIDX 10th Style''. And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nZLLzFNAD0 full version]] is just as awesome, if not more.
** Hana Ranman -Flowers- (see the DDR section).
** Mugen no Hikari (see the Pop'n Music section).

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZAXajq0EOU BRIDAL FESTIVAL!!!]] from S.S.D., also known as Arata Iiyoshi. Very catchy and heavily reminiscent of his works on ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon''.
