The Many Musical Tributes To Mass Effect

The Many Musical Tributes To Mass Effect


No doubt about it: the Mass Effect games had some great music. Over the run of the trilogy, a collection of composers and songwriters came together to create an iconic, unmistakable sonic identity. (Sometimes, they even hide their music in the game itself.) But just as remarkable as the music in the games has been the music created about the games.

Year after year, musically inclined fans gave musical tribute to Mass Effect. Sometimes the songs were funny, sometimes energizing. Sometimes they were beautiful and sad.

As the final post of Mass Effect week, I thought it would be fitting to round up some of the best musical tributes from over the years. They’re below, in no particular order, with links to download the tunes in question.

“A Reason to Breathe” – Mass Effect Fan Tribute


That tribute video, by Dmli1023, seems like a fitting note to go out on. The list is by no means complete, so if you know of a great tune that I left off, feel free to post it in the comments.


With the release of the final piece of DLC, the Mass Effect trilogy has finally concluded. And so we’ve decided to spend a week taking a look back: It’s Mass Effect Week at Kotaku. All week long, we’ll be revisiting the last five and a half years of galaxy-saving heroism, cross-species romance and awkward dancing with new articles and some classics from years past.
