Is This THE END? is a suspenseful fanfare that plays after BJ kills the Angel of Death and collapses on the ground. Interestingly, the game often does not play this song at full length, it plays about a half, and then changes to Award Ceremony ending screen. Last 6 seconds are just fast repeating drum beat, the player won't miss a lot. Since this song is used during the animation cutscene, its length can be different, depending on the CPU speed - that's why the composer made this specific delay at the song end.

"Is This THE END?" is track 8 in the game's data. Its title in the IMF meta data is "XTHEEND". It is not included in the demo release of the game.

Bobby Prince composed this song in Sequencer Plus Gold.
