    Came across it randomly, reminded me of this:

    The intros sound quite similar.

    These two songs by English (Leeds) gothic rock band "The Systers of Mercy" (one of my brothers is a huge fan) ...





    have lots of similarities with Road Rash II Main Theme :

    I see some relatively recent replies on here, so I'll bite:

    I'm getting some major S&K Mini Boss vibes from this song by the S.O.S Band (one of favorite bands) starting at about 0:51:



    And while this next song (from Rob & Fab of the Milli Vanilli scandal of all people) doesn't necessarily SOUND like anything, the selected part (0:24) sounds very Gen/MD-like and those snares at the same part, specifically sound very Sonic 1 & 2'ish:

    In the Sonic 3 prototype thread, @SEGACast said that the unused music from S3&K Collection and the prototype...



    ...sounds like "Something About You" by Level 42:




    To me, the melody in the Sonic track's first ten seconds sounds like the chorus melody of the Manic Street Preachers' "Australia" (instrumental version at 0:07; repeated in the vocals at 1:07).



    That had its album release in May 1996. Of course, Sonic and the Manics already had a connection before that...:eng101:
     



  6. About six seconds in, does that bit from Queen's "Invisible Man" sound remarkably similar to the Special Stage warp SFX to anyone else?

    edit: the bit fifty seconds in is perhaps even closer.

    I found a near identical version of the 'Go' sound effect from Sonic & Knuckles at 4:30



    Actually no, it's not the same 'Go' effect since the source is a higher-pitch and has a Michael Jackson voice.

    I think it’s been confirmed that the “go” sample came from a sample pack and wasn’t recorded by MJ.

    Trying to get outta Dr. Dre mode, and actually release an album.
    It's from Run-DMC's "Peter Piper." Nothing to do with MJ.

    Some time ago, I read somewhere that Spring Yard was inspired by Toshiki Kadomatsu's "Lovin' You (Sawako)". Most everyone else I've mentioned it to say it's hard to hear, but speeding it up might make it a little more clear.
