I just want to start off by saying is that there is an absolute fuck-ton of shitty video game cover music out there. The good news is that there's also a shitload of GOOD video game cover music out there, too. It just happens to be buried under a massive pile of crap is all.

Well, me being all OCD and liking of the sorting and organizing and such, I've gone and over the last few years amassed quite the collection of the good stuff. It's reached a point where I felt it might be good to go ahead and share my collection with everyone else. So, I went and RAR'ed the fuckers up and stuck 'em on MegaUpload.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4RFTP0M3

While it's downloading (it's a massive fucker... some 200-odd songs in it), here's a couple of things about it that I should note:

-There's nothing really illegal in the download. All of this is stuff that was offered for free download by the author at some point in time, though that's not to say that a good chunk of it can actually be found anymore. So, no Black Mages here (even though I do have their first two albums). There's not much Vomitron, either, but that's mainly due to their upcoming album not actually existing yet.

-For that matter, no NESkimos in the download, either. I think it's safe to assume that everyone here at LEAST has that much. I did include Wily's rendition of the MST3K theme song, though, since I doubt a lot of folks here actually have it.

-Most of the stuff is rock/metal. Some of it isn't. The stuff that isn't is there either because I actually like it and think it's decent music, or because it's of a video game song I really, really like and I can't find a better cover of it anywhere online. I'll leave it up to y'all to decide which ones are which.

-DoD, OCRemix, and VGMix are the primary sources for a lot of this stuff (in that order). Secondary sources consist mainly of the authors' own websites. Aside from that, there's quite a bit of stuff in there, as I've indicated above, that really can't be found anywhere anymore. This includes stuff that used to be hosted on VGmix before it crashed. I can only hope that it went down because the guy who kept labelling everything under the sun as "stuff of legends" finally had his lobotomy reversed. Then again, DJpretzel isn't much better when it comes to warning people about crap. Have I mentioned that there's a LOT of bad music out there? I digress.

-If the volume of the tracks seems low to you, it's because I used a program called MP3 Gain on my entire music library to normalize the volume of everything in it. The volume settings I used were the defaults, which is a bit lower than normal volume for better overall quality. If you want to make it louder, your best bet is to just use the same program I did (it's freeware and available for download online at http://sourceforge.net/projects/mp3gain/ . Actually, you may just want to go download it, anyways, since it's a fucking gem of a program.

-Some of the tracks have been edited for sound quality, primarily the stuff by MegaDriver and Ashane. Ashane's cover of Boomer Kuwanger, in particular, was so bad that I have this urge to track the guy down and punch him in the face. And then I'd buy him a drink and shake his hand for making such an awesome cover of Boomer Kuwanger. (If you feel the need to rate my audio editing skills and let me know if they're worth a damn at all, try comparing my version to the original: http://ashanex.googlepages.com/cover.htm#kuwanger

-Metroid Metal by Stemage and both songs by Project X are several compositions by said artists that have been edited together by myself in the form of a medley. Just as with the above, feel free to let me know how much I suck at editing audio :P

-The version of Falling Back by Darangen I have has been edited, as well. It's the regular version of the song, but it ends with the opening part of the acoustic version.

-Listen to the Megaman Medley by Andrew WG. That shit be bangin'.

-The Grospixels are French. This means I can't understand a Goddamn thing on their website ( http://www.grospixels.com ). There may be something else worth listening to that they have produced and threw somewhere on there, but it's not like I'll ever know.

-The same goes for MintJam, except that they're Japanese. They have quite a bit of other stuff that is actually very good, but from what I can tell none of it is video game related. Again, what I can tell is limited somewhat by the fact that I have absolutely no idea what anything on their website ( http://www.mintjam.net ) says.

-"Zelda Rap" by 5-3 Federation is horrifyingly bad. I only have it because it's also funny as hell. Consider yourselves warned.

-Because I know somebody will eventually ask, I'm trying to put together a list of which songs are covered by every song in the collection. The only problem is that I'm not 100% sure on quite a few of 'em. So, yeah, that'll be fun.

-For the curious, the most-covered video game song in this collection is the theme from Zelda (7 covers), followed by Wily's Base from Mega Man II (6 covers).

-If there's anything that's not in this collection that you think I might like, by all means let me know. Bear in mind, though, that I've already mentioned where I got all of these tracks from. So, unless what you're suggesting is really obscure or hard to find, there's a good chance that it's not in this collection because I listened to it and didn't like it >.>

-Lastly, here's a list of what's actually in the download, with little American flags next to my favorite tracks:

Fucking :awesome:

Definitely downloading. Thanks a ton.

Have you heard Arm Cannon before? They've got a pretty great version of Boomer Kuwanger IMO.

Also this should be stickied FGJ

Wow, I ALREADY killed the bandwidth for that download by posting it somewhere else... I wasn't expecting the overwhelming response I got to it o.o

Not sure if the link is dead for good, or if it'll come back in a day or so. Did either of you guys get it yet?

Excellent work, BTB, I am looking forward to listening to this.
Though, I do wonder why you have all those Ashane songs, but don't have Zealous Entropy or Cessation of Mammon. Not a Chrono Trigger fan?

Not a fan of Ashane's Chrono Trigger work, at any rate. If you look, you should notice quite a bit of CT stuff in there.

And Batman, if you could get a mirror up or something, that would be great. No telling how long it'll take MegaUpload to flag me as abusive or some shit for posting too large of a file and then having assloads of people download it... >.>

Edit:

All right... I'm going to upload another archive, this one with the four songs what were missing out of the first one:

Back To Town Arranged by McVaffe
Frenzied Encoutners by Norg
Dark World by Kadmium
See You Tomorrow by CarboHydroM

Of course, it will take somewhere in the realm of six hours to upload again, so don't expect the link anytime soon. And that's *IF* I can uplaod it without any problems.

Well, hopefully this should be a sufficient offering in return for somebody helping me to get ahold of Vomitron's new album when it comes out.

Edit:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XH3QUR3V

Here are the songs that were missing from the first download.

Wow... the download is still there.

Does anybody here know how long crap stays at Megaupload before it dies?

Ok, wow, that link still hasn't died.

And people keep asking me to repost this on other forums, so I need to bump this before I forget about it.
