A recording of the General MIDI rendition from Duke Nukem 3D is used as the music of "Balls of Steel" pinball machines. That recording was a bit edited to sound like it's coming from the cheap speakers of such machines, but otherwise, there are no major differences from the Duke Nukem 3D Roland Sound Canvas version.

The name is "MUS_PB_STALKER.mp3"

First version of this songs is played as E1M1 music as the original Duke Nukem 3D Roland Sound Canvas version, but rendered in OGG using different sound bank. The game files also feauture an original MIDI version, which by itself does not play in the game. The name of the tracks are, respectively, "STALKER.ogg" and "STALKER.MID" in the /music folder.

A remixed version (also done by Lee Jackson, as well as the whole re-mastered and brand-new music in that game) appears in the brand-new episode in E5M1, already as an OGG file, made without MIDI, hence it only exists as a PCM recording. The name is "E5L1_BulletDam.ogg" in the very same /music folder.
