Real World Songs that Belong in Splatoon

Splatoon 1 and 2 are great games. They also have great original soundtracks. However, what if Nintendo decided to add real world rock and pop songs to the game(s)? Well, here’s the list of songs that would fit in perfectly. Wether they be heard during a battle or performed by a squid idol.

The Top Ten

Sleep Now In the Fire - Rage Against the Machine

RATM is (was) known for their rebellious sound, and I think this one has the energy for a great turf war. Shoot, imagine this song during Order Vs. Chaos! That would’ve been epic! - ReturnOfScorpio

Hypnotize - Notorious B.I.G. Hypnotize - Notorious B.I.G. Cover Art

Biggie’s Hypnotize would be a Dope addition to the games. Bump this during splatfest, and you’ll get mad woomy on your roller… when you splat them. What? Did you think I meant something else?! Pull your mind out of the gutter! - ReturnOfScorpio

Tumble In the Rough - Stone Temple Pilots

Not the first STP song to come to minds, but the instrumental for this song just screams Splatoon… And this song is almost 20 years the first game’s senior. Give the song a listen during your next match and tell me what ya think! - ReturnOfScorpio

Rise Up - Pennywise Rise Up - Pennywise Cover Art

This song already proved to be a blood-pumper in Burnout 3: Takedown. Who’s to say that it wouldn’t be epic for splatting, too? - ReturnOfScorpio

Baby Bhangs - Pins Baby Bhangs - Pins Cover Art

This punk rock modern is incredible, and would be a great soundtrack for a turf war. - ReturnOfScorpio

Lose Control - Ash Lose Control - Ash Cover Art

North American Gran Turismo veterans may remember this anthem. This song would fit in perfectly in Splatoon 1 with its bass riff, and the song is high charged with blood pumping energy. Have at it! - ReturnOfScorpio

It's My Life - Kiss It's My Life - Kiss Cover Art

Here’s an obscure Kiss hit! Why? Because…
But, yeah, this song may not have the energy of others on the list, but it’s got a good feel. It just feels right for the games. - ReturnOfScorpio

Epic - Faith No More Epic - Faith No More Cover Art
Gravity - Audiovent Gravity - Audiovent Cover Art

This underrated post-grunge hit is often obscured by “The Energy”, also from the album “Dirty Sexy Nights in Paris”, but Gravity just has more energy In my opinion. Would be good for a chaotic round of splat zones, wouldn’t it? - ReturnOfScorpio

Wild Hearted Son - The Cult Wild Hearted Son - The Cult Cover Art

The Cult are masters of energetic tunes. She Sells Sanctuary, Fire Woman, Soldier Blue, and many others are just full of great energy. This one in particular would be a good jam for Splatoon. - ReturnOfScorpio

The Contenders

Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones Cover Art

no explenation needed bro. if only there were black inklings

Metropolis Part I: The Miracle and the Sleeper - Dream Theater Metropolis Part I: The Miracle and the Sleeper - Dream Theater Cover Art

I get hurt when my inkling gets in bad ink oh no!

Thick as a Brick - Jethro Tull Thick as a Brick - Jethro Tull Cover Art

paint is shaped like bricks

Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce Cover Art
