Now Playing Tracks

The Battletoads liked Dubstep before it was cool

Game music has come a long way from the 8-bit days, there’s no doubt about it. Modern games regularly come with a suite of licensed tracks, which is something the consoles of yesteryear simply couldn’t accommodate.

Still, with all the WUB-WUB lighting up 2012’s action titles, I think we need to take a moment and appreciate some good old-fashioned pause music.

That’s right. Please enjoy a few minutes of the closest thing to Dubstep that an 8-bit console could produce, courtesy of Battletoads
