Being the precursor of all modern Fighting Games, you know that the Street Fighter series is rife with Awesome Music.

Let's appropriately begin with the game that started it all, shall we?

    Street Fighter II 
It goes without saying that the title that made Capcom synonymous with fighting games was known for its music just as well as it was known for its gameplay.

    Street Fighter Alpha 

    Street Fighter III 

    Street Fighter IV 

    Street Fighter V 
  • The character select theme, one of the first tracks in the game to be heard by the general public, is pretty hype.
  • The stage music, as usual.
    • The first stage BGM to be unveiled was Forgotten Waterfall (New Zealand), an adventurous theme with an incredible sense of wonder to it. The version that plays during round 1 features a unique flute segment that adds a distinct "frontier" feel.
    • Hillside Plaza (Brazil), which accurately reflects the vibrant party atmosphere of Brazil.
    • Bustling Side Street (China), specifically when round two hits. This was used in a lot of early trailers for the game, and it's easy to see why.
  • Even the game's main menu theme itself sounds quite heroic and epic.
  • As usual, the character themes are top notch.
    • Ryu's theme, now with a mixture of both orchestra and rock, similar to his Alpha theme.
    • Chun-Li's theme is once again very traditionally Chinese, but like Ryu has a very heavy orchestrated rock sound, making it more heroic and determined sounding than past versions.
    • Charlie Nash's theme, a darker remix of his Alpha theme. Static distortions, synthesized drums, and an ominous distorted guitar crescendo every so often paint a horrifying picture of a man brought back from death.
    • M. Bison's theme still has a techno feel to it, but more aggressive this time instead of trance-like, showing that this time, he's going all-out.
    • Birdie's theme calls back to his roots as a British punk rocker, with a very grimy remix of his old theme from SF 1 and the Alpha series. Very befitting of his newfound slob status.
    • Cammy's theme is much faster paced than before with an energetic electronic rock sound backing a classy piano riff.
    • Ken's theme, one of the first character theme samples that Capcom released during development.
    • Necalli's theme. Heavy horns, ominous choir stings and powerful jungle percussion create a fittingly ominous theme for Street Fighter's most frightening monster. "Soul Destroying Darkness" indeed. It may also remind more than a few people of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
    • Vega's classic theme is darker and more sinister sounding than ever, with an undercurrent of madness behind the vanity. It has a very cinematic orchestra sound to it, with a lot of cello, Spanish guitar and flamenco sounds.
    • Karin's theme is as elegant as you'd expect from her, with a very jazzy and classy sound. It even includes a sample of her Alpha 3 theme, which was one of the most popular tracks on that game's OST, toward the middle.
  • The 3rd Beta Phase has brought us a new Online Menu Theme, and it is sure to get players pumped up for another fight coming their way with Guilty Gear style heavy metal.
