Jaguar XJ220. Game sucks but most music bits are awesome (like most Core Design tunes, isn't the same composer as Chuck Rock 2 which is also cool? BTW there are hidden chip tunes in the XJ memory: A-Team, Starsky&Hutch & a third one)
Lotus III. Sucks hard but intro & in-game music are excellent (P Phelan)
Chaos Engine II. RJ music rocks as always
Most Psygnosis games (sorry for that ) except Lemmings where music sucked but game is good.

Jaguar XJ220 music were done by Martin "Nuke / ANARCHY" IVESON (and you're right he also composed music for Chuck Rock 2). Lot of Core Design members are old demomakers (as well as Thalion)

Music was done by Firefox / PHENOMENA (you can listen it in Music Dream 2 / PHA)

Ive never played those games for very long -> technically great, gameplay = boring (personal taste).

No, it's actually pretty good.
But Chaos Engine II definitely qualifies.

Did you know that Top Banana was actually coded and designed by members of Cold Cut and the people who eventually went on to become Hexstatic (the Ninja Tune group who started off by doing the VJ show for Cold Cut and other acts)?

There was even a Top Banana record released!

Note on the A side of the record; "A1: Global Chaos (Amiga Mix)"

That shows they should've sticked to making music Will listen to the music later again, but I don't remember it, so it can't be that great.

I have to confess that I've never heard it either! The CDTV version of Global Chaos (aka Top Banana) is supposed to feature a soundtrack with Biz Markie on the mic as well(!)

Might just be samples though... I suspect it will be an acid house noise mashup.

Not a good tune, the c64 version is much better, although the "Savaaage!" bit is funny. Is that a sample from the Battle of the Planets cartoon at the beginning?
