NESsongsrus

Who ever thought that remixing popular songs into an 8-bit, "Nintendo-style" format would still sound fantastic?  Obviously, not me... but NESsongsrus has taken this to the next level.  Although NESsongsrus is not the only 8-bit remixer, he is one of the more viewed and subscribed profile to publish primarily 8-bit remixes.  Often, I imagine placing some of these songs over the audio of NES and SNES classics, like mega man... it works surprisingly well!

Here's a challenge for you:  try finding your favorite song in 8-bit mode and post it in the comments.  Pop and classic rock are the easiest to find, but  most mainstream songs can be found out there.  If you can't find it, there are free programs out there to do it for you.

Enjoy!

  1. Yeah both of these are great, but sometimes it gets annoying if you have it on loop for hours playing the same game/song.
