The songs on the GTA radio I usually associate with that game whenever I hear them now.

Under My Thumb was played for only about 10 seconds of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, yet I now can't hear it without thinking about that movie. I find this especially odd as I don't really associate the song Scott Pilgrim by Plumtree with Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Also, Bohemian Rhapsody and Wayne's World.

Ha, the one song that makes me think of Road Rash is Sugar Ray's "Mean Machine".

"My Baby Takes the Morning Train" (possibly not the title of the song) reminds me of that episode of Seinfeld where George fakes a disability and his office installs for him a stair lift. It's one of my favorite episodes and even when I see stair lifts in person, I immediately start singing in my mind, "My baby takes the mornin' train!"

I don't know what movie or show it was, but my wife or daughter were watching something recently and Avril Lavign's "Girlfriend" song was playing and I immediately thought of Burnout Paradise. Other than that, I've never heard it on the radio.

Any time I hear Huey Lewis' singing voice I think of Back to the Future.

"Earth Angel" also makes me think of Back to the Future.

Let me see...

Megadeth's Album "Risk" - Devil may Cry 2
Ra's Album "From One" - Turok Dinosaur Hunter
Any song by Incubus - Borderlands 1
Any song by Three Days Grace - Borderlands 2
Any song by Kamelot - World of Warcraft
Superman By Goldfinger - Tony Hawk Pro Skater
99 Red Balloons by Goldfinger - Gran Tourismo 3
30 Seconds to mars album "This is War" - Monster Hunter (All of them)
Mega Man X 1-6 Soundtracks - Diablo 3 (Funny how that works!)
Ozzy Osbourne's album "Blizzard of Oz" - Star Fox Adventures
Perry Mason by Ozzy Osbourne - Zelda OOT

So in general... When I play games I will enjoy the music and such from the game, but unless it's an amazing soundtrack (I'm looking at YOU Y's Seven) I tend to turn off the music and attach a specific album to that game. I do the same with books, to this day I can't hear the song "Whiskey in the Jar" covered by Metallica without thinking of the book "Lord Brocktree"

Also I decided to leave out all the Rock band and guitar Hero games for obvious reasons :p

Mine are kind of cheating because the songs were introduced to me by the games:

"Bartholomew" by The Silent Comedy from the Dark Souls trailer (it also shows up in the trailer for "Hatfields and McCoys") I love this band now, and their album Common Faults is always in my playlist when I play Dark Souls.

Lately it's been Nico Vega's "Beast" from the Bioshock Trailer. I'll never be able to seperate it from Bioshock, but it got me into a cool new band with a very "Rage Against the Machine" sound going for them (yeah, I went to high school/college in the 90s lol).

People are Strange - The Lost Boys (but it has to be the Echo and the Bunnymen version.)

I associate "Remember the Name" by Fort Minor with farming in MMOs. It was the first song on my farming (specifically bomb farming in GW1) playlist a few years ago.

When the Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash

I can't listen to that without thinking about Dawn of the Dead.

I saw that after the commercial. Echo and The Bunnymen - "Killing Moon" makes me think of Donnie Darko

"Getting Away With Murder" by Papa Roach was the intro song for MechAssault 2 on the original Xbox. So that is an.associatiom I have.
