Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground soundtrack revealed, Beastie Boy’s MCA playable

Say what you will about the aging Tony Hawk skating franchise, but it’s hard to deny Neversoft’s nack for culling an eclectic, solid soundtrack for the games. Today, Neversoft has revealed the soundtrack for the upcoming Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground, which will contain 50 songs that span across a number of genres including hip-hop, punk, and metal. 

Among the songs making the cut will be a new track, “The Pretender,” from the Foo Fighters’ upcoming album. It will be joined by tracks by Bloc Party, El-P, Nirvana, and other songs “that have fueled today’s skateboarding culture.” The Beastie Boys’ “Electric Worm” will also appear on the game’s soundtrack, likely to complement the inclusion of Adam “MCA” Yauch as a secret unlockable character. Some secret, guys — you put it in a damned press release!

Not a bad soundtrack for the free game you get for buying the Guitar Hero III demo, eh? Hit the jump for the full list.
