The Best of Crush 40: Super Sonic Songs is the third album by the Sega-affiliated rock group Crush 40. Included are tracks from their previous album, along with a selection of Sonic the Hedgehog-related songs, many of which have been re-mixed specifically for this compilation. Brand new to this release is a cover of the theme to Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, a cover of the song "Fire Woman" originally done by the British band The Cult, and "Is It You," an original Crush 40 composition not written for a video game.
The album was also released as a digital download on iTunes and Amazon, with three extra bonus tracks which have been published on other physical releases through Wave Master. Individual tracks cost ¥150, US$0.99, £0.79 or €0.99.
