Monstercat’s brand has been synonymous with gaming since day one of its inception. Over the years, the independent dance label has cemented itself smack in the middle of the video game world. Most recently, Monstercat teamed up with Rocket League to launch a collaborative album titled Rocket League x Monstercat Vol. 1.
The label’s history made it a no-brainer for Billboard Dance to have them curate the best 50 gaming songs ever. “This list was a ton of fun to curate and brought nostalgia to many of my hardcore gaming sessions,” says Gavin Johnson, Monstercat’s head of gaming. “These tracks were my highlights during years of gaming and feel resonated well within the community.”
The list features a handful of soundtrack classics, as well as some records that have become one-and-one with gaming. Without further ado, let the games begin!
