SmackDown: Here Comes The Pain
SmackDown Vs. RawSmackDown vs. RAW is the first game in the series to feature a soundtrack composed of real-life songs. Some of the songs listed here are also featured in several other WWE games such as WWE Day of Reckoning for the Nintendo Gamecube.
- Powerman 5000 managed to give us not one, not two, but three kick-ass songs for this game: "Riot Time", "Last Night on Earth" and last, but not least, "When Worlds Collide".
- We also get two rocking tracks from Breaking Benjamin: "Firefly" and "Polyamorous".
SmackDown Vs. Raw 2006
- Undoubtedly one of the most awesome and memorable SvR songs out there: "Waiting".
- "Pieces", from that chilling intro to the badass riff that follows it, is a treat from start to finish.
- "Is the can half-diseased or is the disease half-canned? And is the man half-machine or is the machine half-man?" Nonsensical lyrics? Yes, but it dosen't make it any less awesome.
- What happens when you take an already awesome heavy metal song and give it some modern flavor to make it even more awesome?: you get the Steve Tushar remix of Megadeth's "Symphony of Destruction".
- "I'll take it all! I'll start a war! I'll take it all!". Static-X sure knows how to make us ecstatic.
SmackDown Vs. Raw 2007
SmackDown Vs. Raw 2008
- "Famous" by Puddle of Mudd. Notable in that it was used on several other WWE Events (a taping of WWECW and the 2007 edition of One Night Stand) before eventually finding its way into the game.
- Sevendust is back and this time around, they've got two songs with them, "Driven" and "Feed".
- Everybody DOWN!, Everybody DOWN!, cause Nonpoint's coming around once again.
SmackDown Vs. Raw 2009
SmackDown Vs. Raw 2010
- Yes, that is indeed the former WWE Superstars intro song you're hearing in the game.
- Skillet had two songs for this game, "Hero" and "Monster". So good that WWE used them again for Royal Rumble 2010 and Hell In A Cell 2009.
- Sick Puppies's "You're Going Down, which also served as theme song for Extreme Rules 2009.
- "Still Unbroken" by Lynyrd Skynyrd (of all people), which was also used for that year's Breaking Point PPV.
- "Down From The Sky" by Trivium breaks the trend, as it was not used on a PPV. Still an awesome tune, though.
- Zac Brown and Chris Cornell gives us "Heavy is the Hand," a song so fitting for Sons of Anarchy it's not even funny.
- 2K could not get the rights to "Bodies" by Drowning Pool for ECW One Night Stand so they substituted it with...are you ready for this? "Hell March". They rename it "Ugly Truth" but there is no questioning it's the theme to Red Alert regarded by many as the best theme of the decade.
- For the trailer, Snoop Dogg contributes "Be Like No One", showing off his rapping skills while plugging the roster and building as much hype as possible for the game.
