Best Video Game Theme Songs Of The PS3/360 Generation

best video game theme songs

Ever played a game that had such a badass theme song that you didn’t want to press the start button to go to the main menu? Ever decided to have a break from killing people becasue the sound effects were drowning out the music? Well i have! So here are some of the best video game theme songs from the PS3 / Xbox 360 generation of video game consoles.

Eat Lead

You can say what you like about this game but i enjoyed it. Not only was it funny but running around the place with guitars wailing away in the background was pretty badass! If as much creativity had gone into the level design as the soundtrack it would have been a winner.


While not technically a PS3 or 360 game it is still natively released on the systems. Every time I load up this game I have to sit through the opening credits just to listen to the song. If you didn’t know any better you would definitely think this was from a James Bond movie..although i think that was the point. MGS3 was by far my favourite Metal Gear Solid game everything about it was just perfect!

Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars

This game was a bit of fun to play with friends but overall not really worth paying for but what it did have was a serious theme tune. The song itself doesn’t get played in game unfortunately (or at least it never did when I played the game) but if you hover over it on the XMB you can get a blast of its awesomeness!

Quantum Conundrum

This game came out on PS Plus not so long ago and to my surprise was a lot of fun. Quantum Conundrum takes a few pages out of Portal but that’s not crime because they pulled it off well. In-Game there isn’t a whole lot of music going on but if you hover over it on the XMB you get to have a listen to a nice catchy song.

Duke Nukem

Duke Nukem comes from a time where everything even if it was a kids TV show (Power Rangers/ Biker Mice From Mars) came equipped with tasty sweet guitar riffs. Combine that with the fact that the Duke Nukem is a total badass there was no way that this game wouldn’t have a beast of a theme song. This song has been covered quite a lot but my favourite version is the Megadeth version.


Anyone who has played Skyrim knows this song! The game has a lot of songs written for it but in particular stands out. This song is just completely awesome. You can be running through the woods when out of nowhere you hear a dragon screech and this song starts playing, it’s at this point that you KNOW shit is about to go down. You are a knight geared to the max with armour and weapons fighting a 50 foot fire breathing dragon…you could play the Scooby Doo theme song here and it would become a legendary song. The fact that this song is legendary all on its own it really makes killing dragons 1 of the most fun things ever in Skyrim.

Rag Doll Kung Fu

Rag Doll Kung Fu was a hit and miss game with some people. Even if you didn’t like this game the theme tune for it was still pretty catchy!

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

This game somehow slipped through a crack in space and time and made its way from the SNES to the current generation of consoles. Are we complaining…hell no! This game has 1 of my favourite theme songs and sound track from any game I have ever played!
