It’s time to slam it into gear with Rock N’ Roll Racing

Rock 'N Roll Racing

I was reading through a “Top 20 retro racing game” feature online and at number 18 was one of my favourite Super Nintendo games – Rock ‘N Roll Racing!

I spent many hours driving around its isometric tracks back in 1993. The game was definitely fun, but like so many games that I played in my youth, it wasn’t the gameplay that kept me hooked, it was the soundtrack. As you can probably guess from the title of the game, the music in the game had a hard rock tone, featuring classics such Paranoid by Black Sabbath, Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf and Henry Mancini’s Peter Gunn theme!

The video above has just the music and is great for a nostalgic listen as background music. The hardcore amongst you could opt for the 4 hour play-through of the game below!

I’d forgotten that Olaf from The Lost Vikings game was a playable character in this SNES classic!
