I first heard The Gone Jackals on the Demo of Full Throttle. When the roar of the engine (in the game) started and the music blasted, I thought woah... this is some excellent music. Although I enjoyed the game I loved the music more. After beating the Demo, I started playing the game for the music so I could hear it again and again. I bought Full Throttle a few weeks later. The main reason I bought the game was for the soundtrack. On the box it mentioned that the music was by The Gone Jackals. I rushed out to Tower Records and bought their album. >From this day on, I have enjoyed The Gone Jackals music. Why? It is great driving music. It is great when you feel rebellious. It is great when you need to listen to some heavy riffs and mean guitar licks. Im a fan for life. Honest.
