So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Battletoads is a super-challenging action game with various styles of gameplay (fighting, platforming, racing, etc.) and excellent graphics. Oh, and there's a massive bug in two-player mode.

Both this game and its arcade counterpart were resurrected in Rare Replay for the Xbox One, nearly 25 years later.

Unused Music

Track #8 on the NSF is an unused song. Where this song was intended to be used is unknown. In the final game, the only two stages that share background music are Level 5 (Surf City) and Level 9 (Terra Tubes), so it's possible this song was originally meant for one of these two areas.

While not entirely unused, you normally only hear about half (or less) of the post-level theme during normal gameplay. Understandably, the second half of the song has never been remade in any of the other versions of the game for that reason.
