Awesome Music: Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami
  • To start with, there's the three most iconic songs in the game: Hydrogen, Crystals and Paris 2, by M.O.O.N.
  • For a pumping synth-y disco beat, "Miami Disco" by Perturbator and "Knock Knock" by Scattle are the ones to go for.
  • "Release" by M|O|O|N fits into this as well, with its resemblance to the theme from Blade Runner.
  • "Miami" by Jasper Byrne plays as the score screen, and it's hard to think of any better choice.
  • "Turf" by El Huervo, the final level's music. Perfect for the intense showdown that happens.
  • "It didn't make it into the game itself, but the trailer music, Vengeance" by Perturbator, is a driving, aggressive stand-out in a fine soundtrack.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
  • "Technoir" by Perturbator and "Decade Dance" by Jasper Byrne, for starters. Perfect level of energy for the gameplay.
  • "Roller Mobster" by Carpenter Brut plays during Death wish, and it feels like an injection of pure adrenaline. "Le Perv" - which subsequently appeared in The Crew - counts as well.
  • "Divide" by Magna helps introducing the intensity of the game just as it begins.
  • "Simma Hem" by Riddarna, a great piece of Swedish rock. It's a shame most of it isn't used in-game.note 
  • "Dust" by M.O.O.N., which plays at the score screen.
  • "Rust" plays at the intro to Beard's levels, and it sounds suspiciously similar to "Daisuke", the song that plays at his stores in the first game.
  • "Hotline Miami Theme" by Benny Hills. Perfectly encapsulates Hawaiian warfare.
  • "The Way Home" by Magic Sword plays during one of the hardest levels of the game, and listening to it just invokes feelings of sadness AND raw determination to fight on towards the end. The Way Home indeed...
