That's a good point too.. I had forgotten about that. In the 90s, it was almost unprecedented for developers to spend a bunch of money on licensing a lineup of real music for in-game use. To my recollection, there were only a few games starting to do it by the late 90s (Crazy Taxi comes to mind), but the Tony Hawk series had the best licensed soundtracks in that time period IMO.

Tony Hawk 2 was always my favorite. The addition of manual's to link combo's made this a huge jump in gameplay from the first Tony Hawk. I played both 1 and 2 to death on the Dreamcast back in the day. I remember how superior the graphics were compared to the PS1 and N64 version and I couldn't understand why everyone in the US didn't own a Dreamcast? It was a quantum leap in graphics but nobody seemed to notice until it was too late and PS2 was out.
