Robin Beanland released several different versions of the character select music he worked on for the original Killer Instinct. Release today on his Soundcloud account, you can flashback to the 90s and rock out to these previously unheard tunes.  Leave us your comments on the music here.

Woww. Listening to that music compared to the music we know and love in the game goes to show how music play an important role in tv,games,movies etc. It sets the mood and tempo to the point it becomes engrained in the mind.You gotta ask yourself the question,if Rare went along and used these unused tracks back then,would that affect my outlook on how I felt about the game? Wowww.

They don't fit as well as the official one. Almost like they're not as serious in tone.

Yeah that's why they picked it! All though a lot of them could have worked in Battletoads.

I have to wonder if we think they others aren't as good because they aren't what we originally heard.  Or if its just that the original IS so great.  Don't get me wrong, i think the original is perfect and some of those wouldnt have fit. 

I wish they'd do a retrospective documentary on the making of that game.  Theres not a lot known about it, we have some info but I'd love in depth interviews with the creators.
