(PG-13 Language) MCs Beardyman, LeeN, and Dizraeli and crew tear up the stage with a fun, freestyle performance based entirely on a random title provided by an audience member. From the all-improv One Album Per Hour tour.

YouTuber gundersonmunderson uploaded this video to share his SEGA Genesis-style intro for Drive. But the real star here is the chiptune version of A Real Hero, which he made using an emulator of the SEGA Genesis’ sound chip.
