Original Demo Recordings

During the 8-bit and 16-bit eras, video game music would be performed differently, before being converted to the appropriate format for the finished product. These demo tracks were recorded by Kazunaka Yamane on the Korg M1, Korg T Series and DW-9000 keyboards in July 1992. The tape was re-discovered twelve years later in 2004, albeit in very poor quality.

Mission 5's theme. Used as Mission 3's theme in the final US version and Mission 5's theme in the final JP version. Presumably, it would also have been used during the battle with the Chen brothers in Mission 3, to determine who would be "the true Double Dragons".

Alternate track for Mission 7-2. Unreleased until 2004. It was rejected for being "too similar" to another tune, but the tune in question was never specified.

Double Dragon theme. Used as Mission 5's theme in the US version and for the Title screen and battle with all the enemies in the Great Hall in the final JP version.

Cut-scene theme. Used for the Title screen and Mission 7 in the final US version and as a Sound Test option in the final JP version. As the name implies, this track was intended to be typically played, after you finished defeating a boss at the end of each mission.
