Arm your Mega Buster and GET EQUIPPED with excellent game music from the Mega Man series! We hit games ranging from NES all the way through to the PlayStation in search of the best and baddest Mega Man tracks there are!
Joining us on this quest is Josh Breeding of the Mega Man inspired rock band The Megas! The Megas cover Mega Man (and more!) music with their own arrangements and inspired lyrics. Going beyond VGM karaoke and giving life and emotion to the Blue Bomber and his robot brothers!
We talk about Mega Man, Rockman, and even more Mega Man! The difficulty of writing lyrics to classic video game tunes, and of course, more Mega Man.

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!
