What was it about this game? The unique story, the gold chrome cart, the strange monsters and items? Whatever it was, it started a franchise that continues on almost two decades after the first game.

Music

The Legend of Zelda was early in the NES market, so the music isn't expected to be awesome, but there are a few nice tunes. The introduction music is especially iconic, and the other tunes are quite memorable to anyone one who played the game. The titles come from the names as seen on several of The Legend of Zelda soundtracks.

Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.

Some tracks, like the game over music, are missing from the rip and, as such, also from the Vorbis soundtrack. When the rip is updated to include the missing tracks we will update as well. While the game over music begins the same as the ending music, some notes are played in the ending music that are not present in the game over music making it impossible to record the proper game over music.
