Music in Old School RuneScape is mostly in-game background music designed to enhance a player's gaming experience and fit with the environment the avatar is in. Music in Old School RuneScape draws inspiration from classical and world music. These are unlocked during gameplay by going to a particular place or during a quest.

An in-game counter at the bottom of the interface can be used to check how many tracks players have unlocked. Players who unlock all non-holiday music tracks will be able to purchase the music cape from Olaf the Bard, and subsequently unlock the Air Guitar emote.

To unlock Holiday event music from all past years, players must complete the current year's event for that holiday. As of 8 June 2022, there are a total of 715 music tracks (not including unlisted & unused music) found in Old School RuneScape.

Note: On 6 March 2007, RuneScape's existing music tracks were updated as part of an audio rework; Old School uses these reworked tracks. The original versions can be found under the "Versions" section of articles for music tracks released prior to March 2007.
