Get into the groove, boy you got to prove, you’re up to-great video game music! This week’s episode is all about music for rhythm games, which sounds like “music for music games”. Which it is! It’s a different kind of episode where Rob and Pernell listen to great songs composed for games where the song is the game. It’s strange, but trust us on this.

They also get a little nostalgic for the glory days of Konami’s rhythm arcade game explosion. But come on, who doesn’t like singing and dancing in arcades? Because we like it. We like it A LOT.
