You’re training hard, but there isn’t enough time to show everyone? That’s when you need a montage! We’re talking tough-hard-hitting music for pumping iron. But we’re also talking about fun, harmonica-filled jams for the end of a 90s sitcom. Like Family Matters. What if that actually was Carl Winslow helping out Bruce Willis in Die Hard? We ask the tough questions.
Joining us on the show is Cameron from the video game cover band The Mad Gear! Cameron brings his wealth of game and music knowledge to the table and pushes it to the limit!
Check out their awesome music video, The World Warrior! It rules!

This week the super podcast brothers are joined by members from the VGM cover band Rare Candy to talk about all things Final Fantasy! We listen to tracks from nearly every console the series made an appearance. We also end up discussing the finer points of arranging video game tunes for the band, playing Gameboy in long car rides, and what qualities truly make up a “Pernell Track”. It was great fun to record, we hope you enjoy it!
Rare Candy are an amazing video game music cover band with works spanning over 7 years. They’re high-energy arrangements of your favorite tunes will instantly become your new favorites.
Okay, where did I put that password. Is it in the back of the game’s manual? Is it on a post-it note stuck to my Gameboy? Oh there it is, of course! I had it tattooed on Pernell so I would never lose it!
This week we get goofy and listen to music composed for password screens and save select screens. Password functions are typically in older game systems that didn’t commonly support full game saves, so many of our tracks are from the classic 8bit and 16bit eras. We also included “save select” music to help cover more ground 🙂 Enjoy the tunes!
