Remaking 8-bit video game songs never seems to get old for people, does it?

Or maybe I'm still bitter that I never had a Super Famicom when I was a kid (and no, I didn't know what a NES was until I came to Canada).

Well, the nostalgic force is hard to withstand, Kean. And, I know of people making songs that sound like 8 bit videogames, but making rock n' roll covers of real video game music is new to me.

I downloaded a few of these tracks, and some of them are actually pretty nice, memories notwithstanding--I've only played some of these games.

Hehe. When I saw the thread topic, I immediately thought about the NES Advantage joystick. I used it to obliterate my enemies with its rapid fire option. It made playing Jaws a little too easy, though... :?

Back in the day I liked the music from one of the last levels of one of the TMNT games so much I had to pause it and record the track so I wouldn't have to get all the way to the end of the game to hear it again :?

haha, man this is great. I was really afraid by their name that it was going to be some pretentious wannabe-art school fan band, who always seem to have a THE in front of their name. but no this is fun.

I like the advantage.
They're fun.

We were talking about video game music in a thread a while ago that seemed to go unnoticed by most people, which is wierd. The other guy mentioned some really good stuff.

Oh, cool. I didn't notice that either... I think The Advantage had not yet released their first album (it just came out if I'm not mistaken). I'll have to check out some of that other stuff when I get home.. hrmm.

Here's something that's marginally related to The Advantage -- this isn't a video game cover song, but I could totally imagine it being a theme song for some game on the Sega Genesis...

Ratatat - Seventeen Years

Also, if you haven't caught it yet, Bitshifter is one guy making songs with the original Game Boy in all its 8-bit glory. Check out the Audio section for some samples. They're really good.
