8-bit Metal Mondays: Be gentle, it's my first time.

Howdy. Riff's been MIA for a while so I'm gonna try my hand at 8-bit Metal Monday. Only I'm going to double the bits and play a song from Rock n' Roll Racing. That's right, I'm going 16-bit this week. What's that, you've never heard of Rock n' Roll Racing? Well, come here you young gamer you, and Sturby will tell you all about it.

In short: It's a racing game where your cars have weapons that allow you to edge out your opponents while you zip around tracks to classic rock songs. And not just a classic rock inspired soundtrack. Full blown MIDI covers of awesome rock tunes. Plus, the game art, tracks, cars and characters were all heavily inspired by hard rock and metal bands. This game was just 100% amazing. It was originally released in 1993 for the SNES and Genesis and then re-released on the GBA in 2003. It is a must play title and if you find it anywhere, you should just by it and your awesome points will go up by 9,000.

Hope that gives you a little incentive to pick up this classic. If not, here's Highway Star as done by Rock n' Roll Racing.



You can also race to Bad to the Bone, Born to Be Wild, Paranoid, Peter Gunn, and Radar Love and each one of them is as great as Highway Star.
