Last time I got into an argument with my boss the only music I heard was the sweet sound of regret.

That or the last boss in Sonic 2.

Both examples ended with me running from a burning building.

Wait, isn't The Battle for Everyone's Souls the regular battle theme? Anyway, I honestly can't pick a single track, simply because there are so many awesome tracks out there.

@H2Oyea: Thanks for reminding me why I love Persona 3.

This may be the weakest Mario game but this music got me fucking pumped every time I fought a boss:

* sigh* You do realize that I listen to shitloads of video game music, right? How can you possibly expect me to pick out a small subset of songs?

I'm pretty sure everyone here listens to a lot of video game music.

How many people delve into the obscure shit? How many people play games like Cocoron, Faria, Valis II, Panzer Bandit, Evil Zone, Romancing SaGa, and a bunch of other games?

What does the obscureness of the titles you play have to do with the music that any game contains? 
 
New page, I'll post another one I like:

Blue dragon: Eternity. When I first heard this I was dumbfounded by awful singing. But then half and hour later, I was almost singing along. So manly

Xenosaga 3: Hepatica. All three xenosaga games have had great music. But as for why this boss battle song sticks out the most, just listen to it.

I was focusing more on the sheer volume of selections I have compared to a lot of people.

And what I'm saying is that you're not the only one here who has a whole lot of music to choose from.

I'll just change the context of my other posts by adding "compared to everybody else" and call it a day.

I still get chills every time I hear this music and the memories of that fateful day flow back. The first time I made it to that boss and this music came on is hands down one of my most memorable moments of ever playing video games. It took so much effort to work my way towards being a high enough level to tackle that boss, and when I finally did it was just such an Epic battle to behold. I remember that whole event being larger then life for me at the time.

There are tons and tons of Boss Battle songs that I love.  Here is one of my favorites that came out last year to be a little recent.

God, I nearly shat bricks when I first got to the last boss in that game. Even with the SNES sound chip, this song still sounds frightening and pretty darn epic.
