Duke Nukem 3D is known for revolutionizing first-person shooters and delivering an experience that would influence the genre for years to come. It’s also quite beloved for its original soundtrack, with a title theme that still holds a nostalgic place in the hearts of fans. Lee Jackson, the composer for the game, has treated fans by uploading a midi file for the Duke Nukem 3D theme.

Lee Jackson made a post to his personal website to share a download file for the Duke Nukem 3D theme. In addition to a download link, he also shares a brief message to fans of his work on the first-person shooter game.

The Grabbag includes two midi files, one that should work on any standard media player, and a “more authentic” file that contains commands for Roland devices. Jackson requests that users read and agree to the copyright license before downloading the Grabbag.
