Awesome Music: Devil May Cry

One reason the party's always so crazy in DMC is its selection of music:
  • "Legendary Battle" from the original game. It really gets your blood pumping for the final boss.
  • "Ultraviolet" from the original game.
  • "Taste the Blood" from DMC 3.
  • "The Time Has Come" from DMC 4.
  • "Devils Never Cry" the leitmotif of Devil May Cry 3 and its special edition rerelease.
  • All Three Vergil Battle themes.
  • "Ragnarok", the final boss theme of the otherwise uneven Devil May Cry 2, packs emotion, awesomeness, and just overall sounds incredible.
  • "Darkness Instinct," the theme of the suitably terrifying Argosax the Chaos manages to be both scary and AWESOME.
  • "Trish's Theme" from DMC1 is a beautiful piece, really fitting for the development Dante goes through at that point in the game.
  • DMC Devil May Cry uses subtle hints of dubstep and similar electronica as a marker for something being demonic in nature, from Mundas's leitmotif, to background music in the various nightclubs. But during the Mundas Battle, the walls between reality and Limbo are broken, and the demonic is layed out for all to see. What better way to drive that point home, than to let the previously (relatively subtle) Wubs take the center stage?
  • "Empty" from DMC Devil May Cry. DmC's tone (and music) was a far cry from the original games, but the slow, electronic beat that alternates to electric guitar give the fight a Circle Of Extinction feel as Dante and Vergil pace around each other, looking for an opening.
  • "Never Surrender" really sets the mood of DmC well.
  • The Launch Trailer for the Definitive Edition of DMC Devil May Cry uses "Cry Little Sister" from The Lost Boys.
  • Blasphemy from DMC2 just screams Very Definitely Final Dungeon.
  • Love should also be given to the battle music.
    • The two tracks from Devil May Cry 3, "Taste the Blood" and "Divine Hate". "Taste the Blood" crosses over with both Moment of Awesome and Funny Moments when Dante gets the Nevan weapon—a literal electric guitar—and tests it out by performing the aforementioned song. Complete with sounds of an audience cheering (though no actual audience is seen) and stage pyrotechnics.
    • The first track of 3, "Dante's Office (7 Hells Battle)" is the perfect track to get you pumped for a hyperkinetic battle in the Devil May Cry office.
    • All three Vergil battle themes from 3.
    • This wonderful theme plays during the second half of the penultimate boss battle in 3.
    • And who could forget "Devils Never Cry?"
    • "Ultra Violet," Nelo Angelo's Leitmotif from the first game. From symphonic organs to rock and then back, it's the perfect theme for an earnestly strong opponent that you face four missions into the game. "Swipe of Sword" from 4 is essentially its successor, being used for Angelo Credo, an expy of Nelo Angelo himself. It is undoubtedly one of the best tracks in the game.
    • The music that plays inside the cathedral of the first game is also certainly deserving of this.
    • "Out of Darkness" that plays in the opening scenes of 4.
    • The main theme of Devil May Cry 4, "Shall Never Surrender", starts strong giving Devil May Cry 3 vibes. It then makes a calm pause and ends with touching lines fitting Nero's character.
