Music to play Red Dead Redemption to

the ambient soundtrack in RDR is amazing of course, but after exploring for some time you'll start to hear it repeat itself, and maybe you wanna' hear something new.

not just any music though. I try to find stuff that fits the theme of the game.

 

 

 

 

 

feel free to share your own favorite Cowpoke Rustlin' music. even if it's just Old Town Road ;)

it's all good!

good call on the Jesse James soundtrack.

reminds me of O Brother Where Art Thou which has similar Western music.

 

 

there's a brand new song by Leon Bridges and Khruangbin which is also perfect.

 

 

not to mention these gems.

 

 

 

Metallica fits really well for riding across New Austin under the scorching sun.

yeah I know some people are sick of that song but I'm not one of them :D

it's still perfect for hitting the ole dusty trail...

 

 

Bob Seger also made some great horse-riding tunes.

 

 

and of course the Metallica version is incredible.

arguably even better for mowing down outlaws to.

Anything from Young guns or Young Guns 2 probably apt, like Shot Down In a Blaze of Glory by Jon Bon Jovi. :)

 

 

 

Hell it's practically a trailer for the game, let's face it. ;)

 

Metallica: Ride the lightning good for that bit where spoiler alert: the Electric chair mission. :)

 

Gunslingers life expectancy in The WIld West was pretty much dead before 21. If you lived to 30 you were either very good or very lucky or Clint Eastwood. ;)

 

"Live fast, die young, leave a good looking corpse." WIlard Motley, of course dramatasised and fiction but probably not that far removed from the truth his book for a penny dreadful. ;)

Most tracks by Calexico and Federale seem to go well

 

 

 

 

BONUS TRACK: This one is always a good song for riding a horse to, never fails. Ever.

ohhh.

good selections guys.

 

I see your Lady Gaga and I raise you Dolly Parton with the record slowed down to 33rpm's. so haunting.

 

I also see your Blaze of Glory and I raise you with a Steel Horse.

 

plus some more from the reincarnation of Johnny Cash himself, Colter Wall.

this sh!t is amazing music for a cowboy. even the lyrics are perfect.

I actually oddly enough listen to David Bowie mostly while playing the game. Not really appropriate for RDR2.

 

There probably is no life on Mars.

 

But it is oddly appropriate if you listen to the lyrics at least.

 

Is there life on Earth? One does wonder?

Some great choices- any people got some good non-vocal ambient tracks?

 

Bill Elm and Woody Jackson right here 

 

I think these guys use the horns a little too much, so a lot of their stuff sounds more suited to the Driver soundtrack, but this track is good for the bayou 

 

A more "period appropriate" peice, more suited for goofing about town

How can you suggest Colter Wall & The Dead South and not post the best collab ever, Johnny Boy's Bones! 

I always listen to those guys whilst playing RDR2, have done since the game came out!

you're right of course!

I wanted to introduce people to both Colter and Dead South on their own for anyone who never heard of them before. but good call. I love that Dixieland sound.

 

you're familiar with Tyler Childers?

he's another legend in the making whose voice and music and storytelling is about perfect for RDR.

Wheeler Walker Jr.'s songs generally apply to the whole game, but have you ever imagined screaming EATIN' PUSSY KICKIN' ASS while committing war crime-like mass slaughter in Valentine?
