One of the most memorable Amazing Spider-Man stories resulted in a video game all of its own which released on both the SNES and Mega-Drive/Genesis. Maximum Carnage, the game, was released a year after the 14-part comic cross over and featured a relatively similar story.

The game’s music was composed by the American rock group
Green Jellÿ. The music was then reprogrammed to fit with the SNES, as well as the Mega-Drive/Genesis for it’s SEGA counterpart release. The tracks below come from the SNES version of the game.

New York Streets
The track features heavy guitar sounds that really accentuates the setting of the game. The song is a fast tune with various electric guitar sounds and a heavy rock beat. The song is a great example of the overall vibe that’s felt in
Maximum Carnage.

Boss 3
The track kicks into overdrive immediately with its rapid guitar intro. Here we see some of the really heavy music that’s featured in the game.

This track is the main theme song to Maximum Carnage and it was also released by the band Green Jellÿ as a song on their album titled 333. The song features a prominent guitar riff that becomes representative of the game itself.
