Funny story - I played Quake originally on my grandfather's PC via shareware, so I didn't actually listen to the soundtrack until many years later. My uncle had Queen's A Kind of Magic in the CD drive so the track that would kick in during the first level was "Princes of the Universe" from Highlander. It actually worked well. The rest of the album, not so much. I've been playing the remaster so it's good to finally play the game as intended with the right music and to actually play all four chapters. I'm missing the IDDQD cheat code, though. Someone should put that on a shirt.
*This is my own personal interpretation of what probably didn't happen but it makes sense to me.
