It feels like everyone is spending their time social distancing by playing the new Animal Crossing game on the Nintendo Switch. Animal Crossing: New Horizons dropped March 20, and people have been playing it addictively since.
Because the game is so customizable, people have discovered you can actually play several scene songs in the game, whether it’s through the Town Tune function or by having your character jam out on instruments.
Check out 10 scene songs you can play in the new Animal Crossing below.
1. My Chemical Romance – “Welcome To The Black Parade”
2. Fall Out Boy – “Sugar, We’re Goin Down”
— AYE AYE RONNNN 💀 (@AaronkinSkywlkr) April 15, 2020
3. Green Day – “21 Guns”
— maeveactually (@maeveactually) April 16, 2020
We’d be lying if we said it wasn’t extremely amusing to see this Animal Crossing character perfectly hum “21 Guns” by Green Day in the game.
4. Bowling For Soup – “High School Never Ends”
instead of Song of Storms, I made my town tune High School Never Ends by Bowling for Soup, so every time a resident talks to me I just hear ‘the whole damn world is just as obsessed’ in beep boop form
— Seren 🥃💕⚾️ (@UndeadSwine) March 28, 2020
Excuse us while we immediately change our own Town Tune to this Bowling For Soup throwback track so we can hear it in “beep boop” form, as one Twitter user put. There’s also “1985” if you’re looking for another classic.
5. Smash Mouth – “All Star”
— Eric Cunningham (@decunningham2) March 28, 2020
It’s no surprise that people immediately found a way to incorporate Smash Mouth into their gaming, but that doesn’t mean we still didn’t find it hilarious.
6. Black Sabbath – “Iron Man”
also my mother: oh that’s cute, order it for me
this is my mother everyone. i also made her town tune as iron man by black sabbath

This mom not only gets cool points for playing Animal Crossing in the first place, but she also pays a nod to Black Sabbath in the game. And she’s not the only one as “Electric Funeral” is another classic option.
7. Queen – “We Are The Champions”
— Kleber FIlho (@KleberAlmeidad1) March 27, 2020
Making your Town Tune Queen’s “We Are The Champions” is an easy way to brighten anyone’s mood while running around their island.
8. The White Stripes – “Seven Nation Army”
did i tell you guys my AC island’s name is Belmont and my town tune is Seven Nation Army
— sammy (@xSammySeventeen) April 8, 2020
A White Stripes bassline this iconic is perfect for recreating in Animal Crossing form via Town Tunes, because it’s just so recognizable.
9. blink-182 – “Adam’s Song”
— Corey 🦦 (@OneAndOnlyOgre) April 2, 2020
10. Paramore – “Brick By Boring Brick”
Idk if @paramore or @yelyahwilliams give a shit about Animal Crossing but my musician spouse helped me make the “Ba da ba ba da ba ba da” from Brick by Boring Brick into my town tune 😭 (changed to A minor) pic.twitter.com/kmkAr1Oc18

This Paramore fan transformed “Brick By Boring Brick” into an Animal Crossing anthem. They even shared an adorable video of it on Twitter that we’ve played more than a few times already.
