As far back as I can remember, I’ve liked listening to metal. It isn’t the only genre of music I listen to, but it’s definitely one of my favorites. Imagine my surprise, then, when my best friend shot me a link to 8-bit Metallica songs:
…I suddenly feel like I understand a lot more about myself as a person, thanks to this. You have no idea how happy this makes me.

Call me when they make 8-bit versions of The Who music.
A few good bits in there, but this has nothing on Metal Man.
I don’t think The Who would be very interesting – the more I’ve dug around, the more it seems like metal is the only genre that tends to translate in an interesting way to 8 bit music. Not sure why that is, though.
If having too much free time was a crime, the entire internet would be guilty
So I heard tell that dangerous guys are back from hell.
Orion sounds awesome too.
Oldschool Metallica as it may have sounded coming out of a Commodore 64 or one of its’ lesser contemporaries?
This doesn’t really sound like the C64’s SID, it’s much closer to the NES chip.
Random Tangent: It sounds like DOOM music. But the music was part of what DOOM great, you know? I remember being super confused when DOOM 3 came out. All of the sudden DOOM was some “scary” game? Screw that. DOOM is the game where you listen to killer MIDI metal and punch imps until they explode. Hell yeah!
This NES/Famicom remixing music is pretty nice and everything, but what posesses a person to do NES remixes of Sonic-R songs? I thought I was screwed up in the head, but wow internet there are people way worse than I am.
