Awesome Music: Jet Set Radio
One of the main reasons Jet Set Radio and its sequel Jet Set Radio Future garnered high acclaim by critics and fans alike are both games' upbeat soundtracks, courtesy of Hideki Naganuma. The soundtracks featured an array of original and licensed songs of combined music genres such as J-pop, funk, and trip hop to name a few. In this case for both games, it's not so much Awesome Music as it is an Awesome Soundtrack. See also the Sonic Rush Series section in AwesomeMusic.Sonic The Hedgehog, which also had music by Hideki Naganuma. There is now a collected effort to find music in the vein/style of Jet Set Radio here.
Jet Set Radio/Jet Grind Radio
- Sweet Soul Brother.
- "Sneakman". What's going on? I don't understand what's going on here!
- That's Enough, Rock It On, and Humming the Bassline all definitely deserve mention. Funky Radio, too, especially when the vocoders kick in.
- "Let Mom Sleep". Would you stop playing with that radio of yours? I'm trying to get to sleep!
- From the North American version: Dragula. Not very fitting considering the game's atmosphere, but damn if it isn't cool!
- Deavid Soul's tracks are probably the most iconic licensed songs in the game. Miller Ball Breakers, Yappie Feet and Up-set Attack are definitely worth a mention.
- "Magical Girl". Sheeeeeeeee's a magical girl...
- Recipe for the Perfect Afro
- "Super Brothers" by Guitar Vader. WHO ARE YOOOOOU? WHAT'S YOUR NAAAAME? SUPAH BRUDDAH!
