* The final boss theme for ''Opposing Force'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KkrRf3lEPY Alien Forces]], has a lot of stopping power. The alien things have mustered a huge portal underneath Black Mesa, there's a titanic living WMD about to crawl through to our world and it hinges on you to stop it. Now put on your war face and march, Corporal. You have an alien god to punish.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8fW_SeNm_8 The main theme]] for ''[[FanRemake Black Mesa]]''. It's very different from the usual electronic music you listen in the games, but it fits perfectly when you think how bleak Gordon's situation during the resonance cascade incident is - he doesn't know if his friends are alive, he has to fight constantly and even against those who were supposed to be the survivors' saviors, and things just get worse no matter what he does. It just pictures him having time to take a break, sit down, and think of everything that has happened, and still is.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6nywODlcfk Surface Tension 3]], which perfectly sets the mood. When it opens slowly and mysteriously, you know something is waiting for you at the end of that air vent... and once the hard rock kicks in as the Gargantua makes its entrance, you know that it's time to ''run like you've never run before''! Also made for a great soundtrack in the mod's first trailer.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUKcAo8AriM VALVe theme song]], also known as "Hazardous Materials", is especially awesome when the extended version is played when Gordon gets his HEV Suit back in Half-Life 2.
** Its first appearance was in a psuedo-boss in Surface Tension, in which you must scale a thin cliffside while facing off against a turret, HECU, and an Apache.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlD5uvOt_Sw Apprehension and Evasion,]]" for when you're being chased by bullets through a train yard, armed with only a crowbar. Always just as tight, no matter how many times that one scene is played.
** Even better, it plays ''again'' when you and a swarm of antlions raid Nova Prospekt.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOS4SdqXscY Last Legs]] for the final boss battle song! AutobotsRockOut!
** Ladies and gentlemen, witness the awesomeness that is ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquer C&C]]'' music remixed with Last Legs: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6ze0CVBJHw Half Life: Last Legs (Command and Conquer remix)]].

* Not to mention the little signature Half-Life motive which appears when you regain your crowbar from Barney. Goosebumps right there.

* Speaking of the Combine Advisors, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3d1cpWmL5U Shu'ulathoi]], also from ''Half-Life 2: Episode Two'', deserves a mention. Played during the encounter with the Barn Advisor, it's creepy, unsettling and foreboding, all fitting for the first face-to-face encounter with one of the Combine's psychic alien overlords.

* How about some [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8l81NX9X6w CP Violation?]] It's not head-rockingly awesome, but it aptly reflects how the CP units (and by extension, the trans-humans in the games) are a fusion of familiar and alien concepts.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DNVMxMwwqY You're Not Supposed To Be Here]], a very fitting track once you get the chopper gun mounted on your airboat. The track itself sounds like something both Kelly Bailey and [[VideoGame/NeedForSpeed Rom Di Prisco]] would compose together.
