Hotter than Hell is a music theme originally composed by the Konami Kukeiha Club for Super Contra. It is the background theme for Stage 5, Alien 2. A remixed version later appeared in Contra ReBirth as a boss theme.


  • In Super C for the Commodore Amiga, which is a more direct conversion of the original arcade version of Super Contra, "Hotter Than Hell" appears as the title and intro theme of the game, as well as the background theme for the Alien 1 stage, instead of the background theme for the Suspicious Face miniboss fight like it does in the arcade version.
