The just-released trailer transitions between scenes from the original games and the newly remastered versions, which should induce a ton of nostalgia and also shows just how much better and more modern the new version looks. But most exciting of all is the promise of songs from the original soundtracks! THPS soundtracks have always doubled as well-curated (mostly) punk compilations - the first one included Dead Kennedys, Goldfinger, Primus, Suicidal Tendencies, The Suicide Machines, The Vandals, Unsane, and more; and the second had Rage Against the Machine, Bad Religion, Anthrax/Public Enemy, Powerman 5000, Naughty by Nature, Swingin' Utters, Millencolin, Lagwagon, Fu Manchu, and more.
