The Died fanfare plays when you crash your car in Spy Hunter. It is based off of the Peter Gunn Theme that the game uses for its background music. Only a handful of Spy Hunter's ports actually use the tune.

Strangely, the fanfare only plays if the main theme is playing. If you crash when the background music isn't playing, you won't hear the Died fanfare.

The music from the NES port behaves identically to the arcade version.
