The music of Super Smash Bros. Melee was done by a group credited as "Orchestra Melee". The tracks as they are presented in the game's Sound Test are listed and described here.

Music tracks

Almost all of the game's music can be heard in the game's Sound Test feature, and they are given their "official titles" there.

# Title Origin
0 Opening The music heard during Melee's opening FMV, this is the official theme song of the game, orchestrated with slight bits of chorus.
1 Princess Peach's Castle An orchestrated remix of the famous stage music from the original Super Mario Bros., with elements of the same game's "underground" stage theme overlapping with it.
2 Rainbow Cruise A medley of two Mario series tracks. The first half of the track is the remixed first half of the Rainbow Ride tune heard in Super Mario 64 (which is also known as the "Slider" theme from the same game), while the second half is a remix of the underwater stage tune heard in Super Mario Bros.
3 Kongo Jungle A cover band performance of the "DK Rap" made infamous in the opening sequence to Donkey Kong 64, with a much different assortment of instruments and rhythms from its original appearance.

It is followed by the short "game start" tune one hears whenever one resumes a game file in a Metroid game, and then the low-key theme that was first heard on the original Metroid title screen.
8 Brinstar Depths A "horror" remix of area music heard later on in the original Metroid, where Samus is particularly close to her encounter with Kraid, mixed with the track played in item rooms in Metroid.

Other music tracks

The sound room features 80 entries in its Music list (00-79), but this is not the full selection of music in the actual game. Many would identify the "Giga Bowser" battle music, a distorted techno remix of Final Destination, as track #80, the 81st track. In the Debug menu, one can find several unused short pieces as well.

Unlocking Method

Alternate songs can only be unlocked when the player has unlocked certain number of characters (Tracks #30, #32, #34, #35, #36, and #37 are unlocked after all characters are unlocked while tracks #31, and #33 are unlocked after Marth, and Young Link are unlocked). Track #55 only plays when the Sound Test is unlocked.

Trivia

  • A part of the opening for Super Smash Bros. Melee has been derived from the song "Butter Building" from the Kirby game Kirby's Adventure. Also, the opening notes of the main theme bear a resemblance to the credits music from the original Star Fox.
