The Bare Knuckle Original Soundtrack is a video game music album by Yuzo Koshiro, released on September 21, 1991, by Alfa Records. Composition of the album was done using a PC88 SoundBoard II chip with assistance from T.N.
The album has been critically acclaimed as one of the Yuzo Koshiro's best works due to its high quality of sound and composition style, reflective of 90's house music. Yuzo had mentioned he was listening to Western mainstream artists at the time such as Black Box, Soul II Soul, Maxi Priest and Caron Wheeler during the composition of the album. This is reflected in the music, which has numerous tracks that fuse the styles of the respective artists.
Yuzo had previously composed for The Revenge of Shinobi and Misty Blue; both of those games' soundtracks precede Streets of Rage's musical style.
