Innovative skateboard peripheral aside, Tony Hawk Ride will benefit from the in-game appearance of a number of skater icons. As announced in late July, Activision has signed 15 pros to lend their likenesses to the game, including the titular Birdman, as well as Paul Rodriguez, Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins, and Christian Hosoi. Perhaps equally important is the game's song roster, and today Activision unveiled the 50 different tunes that are party to Tony Hawk Ride's soundtrack.

Punk royalty Green Day will provide perhaps the most well-known track in "Murder City." Other notable acts that have achieved mainstream popularity include Beck's "Gamma Ray," the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Zero," Wolfmother's "Joker & the Thief," and Modest Mouse's "Satellite Skin." The soundtrack will also feature a number of lesser known artists, including Band of Skulls, The Temper Trap, and Coconut Records, to name a few.

Developed by Robomodo, Tony Hawk Ride will arrive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii on November 17. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage, as well as the full soundtrack list below.
