Our ‘Tune of the Month’ for July is a real classic and continues the beat ’em up theme from last month. Streets of Rage 2 for the Mega Drive featured some ace music when Sega released it way back in 1993 (in Europe, that is).
The soundtrack is full of amazing songs, but in the end we chose the main boss theme, ‘Never Return Alive’. All these years on and it still sounds awesome.
What’s it from? Streets of Rage 2
Platform: Mega Drive
Composed by: Yuzo Koshiro, Motohiro Kawashima
Gaming context: Filled with menace, this song would play as gamers were pitted against the biggest thugs from Mr. X’s pugilistic gang.
