Another video game list. This time the blue bomber, Mega Man also known as Rockman in Japan. He is not as well known in mainstream as some other video game characters, but that is what I feel makes he more nerdy. Besides many many game squeals and spin-offs, he has had comics, cartoons, animes, novels, and plenty of merchandize. Plus there are several musicians who have been inspired by the game and the soundtracks of the games. So here is my music list of Mega Man music.
1. Mega Ran the nerdcore phenom, who’s name and three albums were inspired by the game.
2. Armcannon video game band named after Mega Man’s main weapon.
3. Protomen with their Mega Man rock opera, so far two parts have been released.
4. Snake Man Vs. The World by Benjamin Briggs is chiptune remixes of Snake Man’s theme for DarkeSword’s Wily Castle Remix Gauntlet.
5. The Megas with pop-rock lyrical Mega Man covers.
6. More nerdcore, Light Prototype from Dual Core is Mega Man based.
7. X-Hunters is metal band that plans songs from the Mega Man X series.
9. Year 200X more video game music from a Mega Man inspired band.
10. Off the FuMP sideshow is Giftedgear with a little acoustic parody of Glycerine by Bush about struggling while playing Mega Man.
Honorable Mention goes to, what else, the theme from the Mega Man cartoon.
