DashFight’s Mortal Kombat 1 Spotify Playlist
Beat your opponents into a bloody pulp while jamming to these tunes

We at DashFight recently made a video that examines the question, “Does Mortal Kombat music suck?” The answer is a resounding “No,” but you have to realize that it has always been done in a specific way. It always takes a backseat to all the action that’s happening in front of you.

Does Mortal Kombat Music Suck?

Not everyone is a fan of this approach, and therefore, many of you listen to your own playlists when kombating your opponents online. With this in mind, we decided to create a unique Spotify playlist that would accommodate the tastes of many an MK player. Our entire team picked 32 tracks that they would listen to while playing MK1. Link to the playlist: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/6c5mkp742u52fpCy3HSAc2?si=f73361ad673c4b68

We begin our playlist with an undying classic. A track that’s associated with Mortal Kombat the most: “Techno Syndrome” by The Immortals from the original MK movie. If hearing “Test your might” doesn’t get your blood pumping, we don’t know what will.

Next, we have a collection of high-octane synthwave, techno, rap, and metal tracks like “Turbo Killer” by Carpenter Brut, “Die MF Die” by Dope, The Prodigy’s “Voodoo People” mixed by Pendulum, “Hacker” by Death Grips, and “Shekinah” by Saving Grace.

After that, we slow the tempo down a notch with the atmospheric and brooding sounds of “101 FM” by Little Slimz, “Triumph” by Wu-Tang Clan, “Annihilate” by Will Sparks, “Helicopter” by James Hype, “505” by Arctic Monkeys, and “My Number” by Foals.

When you need some motivation after a string of losses or after a particularly hurtful defeat where you just know you could and should have clutched it out, the next tracks are there to pick you right up. “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor from Rocky IV is the ultimate motivational song, and it’s followed right after by “Feeling so Good Today” by Paul Herzog from Kickboxer. It’s the best song to play as Jean-Claude Van Damme as Johnny Cage, as it’s from one of the Belgian superstar’s best movies – Kickboxer.

The next few tracks feature songs and artists that you wouldn’t necessarily associate with Mortal Kombat, but you’d be surprised how good they fit: they have the drive and upbeat nature that’s required. “Hung Up” by Madonna, “I Drove All Night” by Céline Dion, and “No Fear, No Hate, No Pain (No Broken Hearts)” by Eurythmics.

The last couple of songs are there to help you finish the job and beat your opponent: “Gaddar” by Bloodywood and “Take This Life” by In Flames are fast, merciless, and motivate you like nothing else.

But we couldn’t end on these songs. After every storm, calm follows. So we finish our playlist like we started it – with a legendary track from the original Mortal Kombat movie: “Halcyon and On and On” by Orbital. Hope you enjoy our selection, see you next time with another playlist!
