In case you didn’t know, in addition to skins and stickers, CS:GO also has music kits. Various genres for people of any taste: rap, rock, classic, folk, pop, disco, club, and so on. Music lovers definitely have plenty to choose from, in fact, as well as those who follow just one style. These kits change music both in the menu and in matches, where scripts, depending on what is happening during the round, turn on different fragments of one long soundtrack.
Music, as with any art, is subjective. Let’s not speak badly about works of art, but simply name the five most unpopular kits, depending on how people trade and use them.
Which are popular music kits?
Music kits can be bought directly in the store, dropped out of cases, exchanged with other players, or, for example, purchased on our platform. To understand which kits are the least popular, we need to work out two factors: their price and Steam Marketplace availability.
Supply creates its own demand, they say. So, according to the rules of economics, the kits with high sales numbers and low-priced, according to the rules of economics, can be classified as popular. The most expensive and rare ones (dropped from cases), no matter how odd it may seem, will also be popular according to the same law because if there are few of them and the price is high, it means that people want them, making them popular but simply not available. There are music packs in the mid-price segment, represented by neither many nor few on the Marketplace. These are average sets, not too popular, not too unpopular.
But those kits are few on the market and, with price tags approaching their nominal, are precisely the ones we need. It’s simple: the price slightly lower than the original hints that the owners want to get rid of them without major losses, but a modest turnover and a small number of items put up for sale state that they are simply not needed by anyone and are niche products.
Too complex to understand? TL;DR: low turnover + average price = low popularity.
Uber Blasto Phone By Troels Folmann
Very epic and a bit of a Hans Zimmer-ish, Uber Blasto Phone was once a success. But today, there are more than fifty music kits in CS:GO, and UBP sounds like another stock soundtrack for any FPS game, and therefore it has squandered its popularity over time.
Still, Troels Folmann created this (once) excellent soundtrack thanks to his experience in game development: he made the music for several parts of Tomb Raider and is now engaged in Overwatch 2’s sound. He also recorded some for a couple of famous blockbusters: Spider-Man 3, Pirates of the Caribbean, X-Men, and others.

Hazardous Environments By Kelly Bailey
Does Hazardous Environments remind you of anything? That’s right! Kelly Bailey wrote the soundtrack for all parts of Half-Life and Portal 1, also! You can recognise these post-apocalyptic vibes all over the music kit. Nostalgic.
However, it is also quite simple and outdated, especially given the progressive competitors. After all, this set was one of the pioneers in CS:GO, so it lost its popularity.
LNOE By Sasha
The slightly terrifying and prompting LNOE by Sasha has been in the game for a long time and is unpopular, most likely because of its outrageous vibe: it’s not just a fun kit; it feels like a soundtrack created for Garry’s Mod single-player horror map! By the way, LNOE literally stands for Last Night On Earth. Well, the record’s overall composition seems ancient for 2022.
Second part of the promo code: RRJ.
By the way, we also made a compilation of CS:GO’s best music kits. Featuring a famous composer, the fictional band from Left4Dead, and more! Good read.
A*D*8 By Sean Murray
Another somewhat recognisable composer. Sean Murray has composed music for several parts of Call of Duty… and that’s why his music pack doesn’t fit with CS:GO at all. While the directing is excellent overall, there can be a bit of cognitive dissonance going on in the head.
It was also one of the first kits in the game. So people are simply tired of it and therefore do not want to buy it.
Lock Me Up By Sullivan King
This one is the most exciting case of our compilation. Released not that long ago, Lock Me Up is a great song from Sullivan King, charging with aggressive energy. True, it stands out among other music kits, but its low popularity is not because of this or the genre. Most likely, this is due to poor direction/composing. The whole kit is just a poorly cut song not a well-thought-out soundtrack with pieces that suit different map situations. So, if you want to listen to some rock during a match, just run Spotify in the background and buy Lock Me Up.
