Reggae legend Bob Marley is famously quoted as saying, “One good thing about music is when it hits you, you feel no pain.” This sentiment explains why music is so important across the globe. Music can be a defining aspect of our cultures, a way to bring us together, a companion in your lonely moments, and an affirming positive force when you’re feeling good. It’s no wonder that online slot developers love weaving music into the themes of the games they create. From hard rock to EDM and ancient folk tunes handed down over generations, our selection of slots below has something for any taste.
1. Ozzy Osborne
NetEnt teamed up with heavy metal pioneer Ozzy Osbourne to create a dark and atmospheric online slot title infused with Ozzy’s iconic music. This 5x3 reel title has 20 paylines and a creepy gothic theme, with the superstar himself appearing as several symbols, along with roses, crucifixes, skulls, and ravens.
Activate the Bonus bet to double your bet and increase your chances of triggering bonus features, along with a few other perks. Landing two scatters triggers a respin and the Symbol Spinner box that adds exciting modifiers to your spins, like multipliers, extra wilds, and symbol upgrades. Land 3 scatters to get four free spins where the Charge Up feature is active on every spin.
2. Astro Legends
Blast off into a cyberpunk neon fantasy with some vaporwave tunes in Foxium’s 9-reel Astro Legends, a slot with an unusual layout and rewarding features. Lyra, a fantastic sci-fi babe with a keytar in hand, is the game’s main character, and she uses her spacey powers to create explosive winning changes. The reel layout is an unusual pyramid of hexagons where precious gems appear as symbols, and a cluster pays system rewards you for grouped matching symbols.
The Sonic Respin feature can trigger on any winning spin, causing all winning symbols to freeze in place for one respin; if any more matching symbols appear, another respin is triggered, and this sequence repeats until no more matching symbols appear. Collect 100 Stardust symbols to activate the 7-layer Lyra Spirit Bonus, where you choose your path and claim big prizes.
3. Guns & Roses
NetEnt’s Guns & Roses online slot pays tribute to one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

You get to choose from some iconic Guns & Roses tracks to accompany you as you play for the top prize of 1250x your bet.
The game’s wild symbol will expand to fill whatever reel it lands on, significantly boosting your winning chances. Three randomly activated bonus features can come into play on any base game spin. Legend Free Spins gives you three free spins with wild reels, the Solo Multiplier adds a multiplier up to 10x, and the Appetite for Destruction Wild feature adds wilds to up to 3 reel positions.
4. The Smashing Biscuit
PearFiction presents a game about a scrappy teen garage band trying to jam while an interrupting dad keeps ruining the fun. The Smashing Biscuit is a 5-reel, medium-volatility slot with a trio of scowling band members and a grumpy dad as high-value symbols.
The dad can randomly wander onto the reels and trigger the Dad Bonus or Multiplier feature. This means you will get a progressive multiplier worth up to 11x, a cash prize, or access to free spins. During the Battle of the Bands free spins feature, the band hops in their van and jumps on a stage for their gig. Land a win with one of the band members included, and that symbol will turn wild until the feature ends. With 11,000x your bet possible as the top prize, it’s time to grab your gear and rock out.

6. Village People Macho Moves
The cheeky and cheerful chaps from the Village People are brought to cartoon life in this disco-infused medium volatility slot with 5x3 reels and 15 paylines. The transparent reels are laid over a brightly lit dance floor, and symbols like microphones, records, and dancing shoes appear. Over each reel is a member of the famous group, ready to dish out some winning enhancements and keep the party going.
Whenever a wild lands on a reel, it turns the entire reel wild and adds one point to a reel counter. Collect 5 Wilds to unleash each reel’s unique free spins mode. You could get free spins with random multipliers, extra wilds, wild reels, symbol upgrades, and sticky wilds.
7. Rockabilly Wolves
Just For The Win takes inspiration from 1950s animation and music in Rockabilly Wolves, a 5-reel game that promises a howling good time. The Animated wolves show up as symbols on the reels, along with flaming eight balls and cherries.
If you only land two scatter symbols, the game allows you to land a third with a respin. Get all three, and you will trigger free spins where one of the scatters will transform into a multiplier sticky wild until the feature ends.

Characters from the movie appear on the reels as symbols, with stage curtains framing the screen.

The Rolling Reels mechanic removes winning symbol combos and makes new symbols appear in their place, making multiple wins possible from a single spin.

The gold disco ball scatter on Disco Danny pays out instant prizes of up to 20x your bet whenever it lands on the reels.
Three silver disco ball scatters will trigger the free spins bonus, but a combination of silver and gold scatters will also work. You start with three free spins and an empty grid where only gold balls can appear. Each golden ball will have multiplier values from 1x to 50x.

Once Link & Win is activated, you will get three respins on a grid where only coins with attached prize values or jackpots can land. When new coin symbols land, the respins will reset to 3, and the round ends when you run out of respins. Fill the grid to claim the slot’s top prize of 5000x your bet.
