Included in the game are two alternate soundtracks: an EDM cover of the original by A_Rival, which by default plays for Melody, and a metal cover of the original by FamilyJules7x, which by default plays for Aria. Through the options menu, the player can choose for each character which of the soundtracks to use, or to have a version chosen at random for each level.
A fifth soundtrack, created by OverClocked Remix, was added to the game with the release of the Amplified DLC.
A sixth soundtrack, created by Chipzel was released January 31st 2017, it will make it's debut on Xbox One.
All versions of each song have the same duration and BPM. The only difference is the style; there is no mechanical difference. A few of the boss tracks (Death Metal, Deep Blues, and King Conga in particular) vary in length across the different soundtracks, but since these tracks loop, there are no advantages to using one OST over another.
There is one more official soundtrack which is a crossover with Danganronpa and is only available in Japanese versions of the game. It was made by Spike Chunsoft, which developed Danganronpa and published the localized-for-Japan version of NecroDancer. However, these songs do not follow the same beat and length of the other official songs, and currently only go up to Stage 4.

- It was revealed by Jake Kaufman that if you layer his version of the soundtrack over Danny B's, they perfectly align and become a larger scale track.
- The Wight to Remain is actually a revamped track of the (scrapped) Zone 1 - Level 4 theme from the game's alpha. The original can be found here.
- Dead End is an unedited track from the game's alpha, the Zone 2 - Level 2 theme. The reason the theme was unused for the level was because it was considered too long to use, and too varied in composition to cut.
This list is all about gathering great music to play to.
