Still no mention in anything I've read about this remake to it including the original soundtrack. From what I last read, Sega don't have the licence to use the Off Spring music so they pulled in some lesser copy cat band to do the music for this one.

Crazy Taxi without the Off Spring soundtrack just isn't the same. Anyone know what they are using for the music now?

EDIT:

No Off Spring any more and the new music is dire. Think I will stick to the Dreamcast/GameCube versions.
