Quest for Jam is the tune that you are greeted with when starting the game. The song plays in the background while you navigate the main menu of the game.

The track was composed by Stephen Rippy using a Boss DSS-330 synthesizer and an E-mu ESI-32 sampler. Finally, the mixing and editing was done using SoundForge.

In the game, it is one of the few tunes (together with Uluzah, Carne y Helado, Rich Corinthian Leather and Droppin' tha Trou) that is stored as an MP3 file and not played directly off the CD. The reason for this was to save disc space since they were not played during actual game action and were therefore less prominent.

The song title has been confirmed by Stephen Rippy.
