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, which featured an array of original and licenced 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 a Crowning Music of Awesome more than it is a Crowning Soundtrack of Awesome.

section in AwesomeMusic.Sonic The Hedgehog
, which had music by the same composer.
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, especially the BB Rights remix.
- The most important part of dance is music. Now, let us listen to the music, and identify the beats.
- That's Enough, Rock It On, Humming the Bassline, and Let Mom Sleep all definitely deserve mention. Funky Radio, too, especially when the vocoders kick in.
- 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.
- Sheeeeeeeee's a magical girl...
- Recipe for the Perfect Afro
- WHO ARE YOOOOOU? WHAT'S YOUR NAAAAME? SUPAH BRUDDAH!
- Grace and Glory
- 'bout the City
