This page is for the Pac-Man (ARC) song. For more songs with the same name, see Start Music.

Start Music is a jingle that plays when a new game begins in Pac-Man.

This song was sampled in the track Mope by Bloodhound Gang in 2000. Wolfpack from Wolfenstein 3D was heavily inspired by this tune.

Title

Two different official soundtracks - Pac-Man Game Sound Effects and Join the Pac - Pac-Man 40th Anniversary Album - call the song "Start Music" in English and "スタートミュージック" in Japanese. (The latter name is the same as the English title, just written in katakana.)
