Chiptune

8-Bit Pixies

8-Bit Pixies

With their feet in the air and their head on the ground, 8-Bit Universe pays tribute to Pixies with a wonderful chiptune interpretation of their ubiquitous track Where Is My Mind?, with a nod to its use in David Fincher’s 1999 classic Fight Club.

8-Bit Knights of Cydonia

8-Bit Knights of Cydonia

8 Bit Universe presents an amazing chiptune cover version of the Muse classic Knights of Cydonia that sounds like it could have come straight out of a late ’80s side-scrolling shooter. We’re thinking something like R-TYPE could have easily used this as its soundtrack.

Pixelord: Human.exe

Pixelord: Human.exe

Director Dima Terem’s psychoactive music video for Pixelord’s post-modern chiptune features a robotic protagonist covered in dozens of white LED panels which light up to the beat of the music. We haven’t wanted a light-up outfit this much since Daft Punk did it.

Gabba Gabba Gabba Tetris Gabba

Gabba Gabba Gabba Tetris Gabba

(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.

Pac-Man 10 Ways

Pac-Man 10 Ways

You won’t be able to get the theme from Pac-Man out of your head after listening to D Wave’s quirky video game medley, which consists entirely of the 1980 arcade game’s music played in 10 different styles.

The 8-bit Time Machine

The 8-bit Time Machine

Composer Giovanni Rotondo always wondered what it might sound like if 21st century video game music was made on 20th century hardware, so he’s making an album of tracks from games like Angry Birds, Destiny, and Portal as chiptunes.

Carol of the Bleeps

Carol of the Bleeps

James Houston created an electronic holiday card for the Glasgow School of Art using a Commodore 64, a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, vintage Macs, and a Sega Mega Drive to perform Carol of the Bells – though the lyrics have been tweaked a bit.

NES Game of Thrones Cover

NES Game of Thrones Cover

Grieg “Theremin Hero” Stewart lets his geek flag fly as high as the one that Mario jumps on at the end of levels as he plays a cover of the Game of Thrones theme on a keytar made from an 8-bit Nintendo system. And yes, it still plays games.

8-Bit Deadmau5

8-Bit Deadmau5

Musician Joe Jeremiah pounds out a chiptune medley of tracks by deadmau5 which we can only imagine would have been the perfect background score for R-Type as we blasted away at endless swarms of aliens.

8-Bit Daft Punk

8-Bit Daft Punk

One could argue that Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories sounds like it was recorded back in 1978, so it’s ironic that Joe Jeremiah’s chiptune version actually modernizes the album with its 1980s sounds. Best watched in 144p.

A Real Hero Sega Genesis Cover

A Real Hero Sega Genesis Cover

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.

The gAtari

The gAtari

Musician cTrix hacked together an Atari 2600, three effects pedals – a bass equalizer, flanger and delay – along with a custom joystick track selector to create a chunky chiptune axe.

Sonic Claus is Coming to Town

Sonic Claus is Coming to Town

DoctorOctoroc returns with a 16-bit holiday greeting, a fictitious Christmas level for the SEGA classic, complete with the perfect holiday chiptune which could have come straight from the game.

8-bit fanatic DoctorOctoroc is back on his game with 30 chiptune tracks based on classic TV shows, cartoons and commercials. Ok, Adventures of The Gummi Bears is not a classic.

Cee-Lo’s hateful yet groovy song still stuck in your head? Try this equally awesome video game parody by Inverse Phase, in which a NES rages after being ditched for a Sega Genesis. Ouch.

My Desk is 8-Bit

My Desk is 8-Bit

This short animated film by Alex Varanese is a wonderful tribute to 8-bit video game style. Alex says he was inspired by both Michel Gondry and R-Type, and you can definitely see both influences.
