Awesome Music: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure


Capcom Fighter
  • If there is one thing that JoJo's Venture has over its update, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, it is in the Opening Theme, which the home ports of the latter kept.
  • The inspiring theme of the main hero, Jotaro Kujo.
  • The elegant theme of the only reason girls play this game, Noriaki Kakyoin.
  • The heroic theme of the our favorite French Butt Monkey, Jean Pierre Polnareff. It's so good it's remixed in the GioGio game.
  • The next thing you will say is: "The daredevil theme of Battle Tendency's JoJo, Joseph Joestar".
  • The I-Don't-give-a-damn theme of the Team Pet jackass Iggy.
  • I, Dio, have a theme superior to everyone's else because I, Dio, am a boss of this game.
  • As an addendum to the above, Shadow DIO's splendidly creepy theme as well.
  • The ever-menacing theme of Vanilla Ice keeps players engaged in battles against him.
  • The once-faceless Midler enters the challenge with an alluring and mysterious theme, fitting her bellydancer-inspired redesign for this game.

The Animation
  • The first episode episode ends, and instead of the usual J-pop, we get "Roundabout" by Yes. Awesome.
  • The second episode starts, and for the opening we get Sono Chi no Sadame! (JOOOOOOOOOOOOJO~) . The Ultra-Manly song the likes of which we seldom we see today outside of tributes to the Eighties.
  • The anime version of Phantom Blood is no slouch in the music department, with a score that combines both orchestral music and a little bit of rock.
  • The Battle Tendency arc has a great soundtrack in general. It was done by Taku Iwasaki, who is practically a CMOA factory, complete with tracks by Lotus Juice:
  • The OP for Stardust Crusaders, STAND PROUD, is just as excellent as the other two openings, while being SEVERAL TIMES AS MANLY.
    • And the new ED theme? None other than "Walk Like An Egyptian" by The Bangles.
    • There's also Stardust Crusaders that first plays during the credits of Episode 2, before "Walk Like An Egyptian" took its place from Episode 3 onward. Luckily, it can be heard during certain episodes and let's just say that any time this theme starts playing, the scene it accompanies is definitely a Moment of Awesome. Also appears to have cemented itself as the signature theme of part 3's JoJo, Jotaro Kujo and Star Platinum. It helps that it sounds like a guitar-heavy remix of the OVA's opening theme.
    • "Virtuous Pope", an uplifting, heroic tune which plays for Kakyoin's and Polnareff's times in the spotlight. When this plays, you just know that the tables are gonna be turned on the bad guys.
    • Setting Off. While it may feel a bit out of place for JoJo, it's nonetheless beautiful and calming.
    • And, from the second half of Stardust Crusaders, we have "Sono Chi no Kioku ~end of THE WORLD~", which features the bands behind all three of the previous openings. Awesome CG visuals, a rocking song and an ending of a triple ORAORAORA may make this the manliest opening in anime history. And that's the tip of the iceberg.
    • Also from the second half, Pat Metheny's "Last Train Home" is a perfect way to come down gently through the Awesomeness Withdrawal.
    • The Oingo Boingo Brothers ED that appeared in the titular duo's debut episode. Not only does it replicate the hilariously terrible and creepy art style of Boingo's manga stand really well animated, but it's incredibly catchy as well. Both voice actors turn out to be great singers, especially Oingo. Notable also for being quite popular on the Japanese iTunes after it first aired, being number 20 at one point.
    • Happens again in the ED for the Hol Horse and Boingo team-up, with the same replication of the episode in Stylistic Suck and rivaling the original version in catchiness.
    • Fool of Sand, just in case you forgot that Iggy is the coolest Boston terrier in the world.
    • Platinum Fists, for whenever Jotaro and the gang are doing something epic.
    • Space of a Lone God, Telence T. D'Arby's theme, which highlights just how creepy this man and his... "collection" is.
    • Sprint, the theme of F-Mega.
    • Shoot Towards the Decisive Battle, a tense theme that plays during and leading up to Avdol's death at the hands of Vanilla Ice, and when Dio is approaching Joseph and Kakyoin's crashed car.
    • Requiem is a massive Tear Jerker of a piece with a slow paced, heavenly choir and organ that plays when Polnareff watches Avdol and Iggy's souls ascend to heaven after Vanilla Ice is defeated.
    • Awakening Darkness of The World, which plays several times during the final episodes, notably during the first time we see the true power of ZA WARUDO in all its glory, featuring an epic reprise of Dio's theme from Revival of Darkness.


  • While it may have been crappy enough to never be released on DVD, the Phantom Blood movie at least had a pretty cool theme song.
  • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: The anthology songs; a three-volume collection of songs done by the three men behind each anime opening, featuring covers of their respective openings, and several "image songs" based on the first three JoJos and the rest of the Stardust Crusaders protagonists. And they're all awesome.
    • Tommy's album features a newer version of "JoJo ~Sono Chi no Sadame~", which is sure to get your head banging, "Fire of Soul", a catchy and awesome tune for Avdol, "GO WEST", which follows the story of the first half of Stardust Crusaders, and the stunningly beautiful "Mirai he no Isan -Jonathan's Ballade-" for Jonathan Joestar.
    • Coda hits us with a funky remix of "BLOODY STREAM" which is sure to get you grooving, only to be followed by the somber "Goodbye Nostalgia" for Kakyoin, which just makes you want to give the poor guy a hug. After that is the slow yet catchy "IGGY WALK", for the Joestar Egyptian Tour's nonchalant Team Pet, and closes with "Crazy my Beat", a Joseph Joestar song bound to get you dancing along.
    • And finally, Jin's album starts off with the spine-chilling "Dramatic version" of "STAND PROUD", followed by a hammy yet equally awesome song called "OH MY GOD, JAHHHHHHH!" for none other than Old Joseph himself. Polnareff is gifted the smooth and happy song "NAKED SILVER", which expertly captures his suave personality, and the album closes with "STAR PLATINUM" for the badass main man of Stardust Crusaders, Jotaro Kujo.
