Villains are just plain terrible. Sometimes they’re trying to end the world, sometimes they’re turning woodland creatures into evil robots. But mostly all they want is to bring back swing music in the 90s, big brass bands and all. We have Cameron from The Mad Gear and joining us to sing along with these villainous hits, and think back fondly of all the bad guys who tried to destroy us.
Rising from the streets, crawling out of the slums, a force known as The Mad Gear is gaining critical mass in Turbo Citysince 2014. They are draped in leather and denim, and armed with the toughest tunes from video games past, and original compositions of their own.
They are bad enough dudes to rescue the president, but probably won’t due to issues with authority.
We’ve done it! Three years of podcasts, video game music, and friendship! Let’s reflect back on our favorite tracks and episodes of the last year, you may be surprised at what we pick! There’s celebratory beverages, behind-the-scenes podcast stories, and fun trivia quizzes which Pernell is way too good at.
This episode was recorded in a live stream, which you can watch here unedited! (ALL HAIL THE METRONOME)
