Everybody loves cowboys. They're as American as apple pie, they're hard boiled gunslingers and most importantly they have some of the best theme songs of any hero you'll meet, hands down.


Today on the Kotaku Mixtape, we're looking at the best music to appear in Wild West video games. From that wackyness of Zan: The Samurai Gunman to the Peckinpah ruggedness of John Marston.

Sure, there are a few Ennio Morricone sound-alikes kicking around in there, but who cares? It's the Wild West, baby.

THE PLAYLIST:
Wild Arms - Into The Wilderness
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Gerudo Valley
Rising Zan - Johnny No More
Bastion - Spike in a Rail
Red Dead Redemption - Far Away
God Hand- Bronco Buster
Freddy Pharkas Frontier Pharmacist - The Ballad
Outlaws - Anna's Theme
Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath - Fighting Outlaws 1
Gun - Theme
