Awesome Music / Crypt of the NecroDancer

Go To

The whole soundtrack is naturally easy to dance to, but some tracks are especially catchy. As the original soundtrack was made by Danny Baranowsky, this is not surprising.

  • The 1-1 theme, "Disco Descent", is a great first level piece.
  • The 1-2 theme, "Crypteque", has a ridiculously infectious beat, to the point where you might think the Necrodancer got your heart too.
  • The 1-3 and title theme, "Mausoleum Mash", lets you know you're in for a real treat with the music.

  • The 2-1 theme, "Fungal Funk", starts off sad, then picks up and becomes incredibly groovy.
  • The cold version of the 3-1 theme, "Stone Cold", has a nice sense of desperation to it.
  • 3-1's hot version, "Igneous Rock", is no slouch, making you feel like you're dancing your way through the depths of Hell.
  • The hot version of the 3-3 theme, "A Hot Mess", perfectly suits the absolute mosh pit that is the penultimate zone, and was even used in the early access trailer!
  • The 4-3 theme, "The Wight to Remain", gets you pumped to take on the final stretch of the game.
  • King Conga's theme, "Konga Conga Kappa", feels strangely whimsical.
  • Death Metal's theme, "Metalmancy", is fast-paced and pretty intense.
  • Fortissimole's theme, "Notorious D.I.G.", is a full rap song, and the only song in the game with spoken lyrics from the boss himself that continues playing as long as Fortissimole is alive.

  • Dead Ringer's theme, "For Whom the Knell Tolls", is a masterpiece.
  • The Necrodancer's own theme is split up into two: "Momentum Mori" and "Last Dance". Both are electronic-based tracks with the latter being more frantic as the Necrodancer tries to do you in.
  • As of the full release, you get triple the awesomeness, as it includes three different mixes of the entire soundtrack — the original by Danny Baranowsky, an EDM version by A_Rival, and a rock version by FamilyJules7X. Later on, two more remixed soundtracks were released and added to the game: a retro-game style version by Jake "virt" Kaufman and a synthwave version by Girlfriend Records.
  • With the release of the Amplified DLC, you get yet another version by OverClocked ReMix, along with 4 new tracks in all soundtracks.
  • The launch version of the Amplified DLC brings us The Conductor's theme, "Vamplified", a haunting and epic piece of music.
