The Comedy Song Debacle

Six years ago, on my first date with my girlfriend, she asked me a question.

“What kind of music do you listen to?”

 

This is a really simple question for most people, but not for me.

You see, I am not that into music.

I mean, I do really enjoy music, but I don’t have that many serious musicians that I listen to.

It is mostly comedy bands, and stuff like Miracle of Sound that has a lot of references to popular culture in it.

I am a bigger fan of comedy than I am of music.

4 Animated NSP Songs

Sometimes, a normal live-action music video cannot do justice to a Ninja Sex Party song.

5 Great ‘Starbomb’ Songs

Starbomb is a musical-comedy group consisting of the two main hosts of the video game let’s play show ‘Game Grumps’, Arin Hanson and Dan Avidan, and Brian Wecht.

 

Before the three joined forces in 2013, Dan and Brian were already making music as the comedy band Ninja Sex Party.

When Arin started making music with them, they formed a separate band dedicated to making songs based on video game characters.

 

As we are closing in on the release of their third album, I figured I would share some of my favorite songs by them here.

The Hero of Rhyme

Link, the hero from the ‘Legend of Zelda’ video game series, has hung up his sword and Shield, as he feels his mad skills at rapping will be enough to defeat any foe.

The video was animated by Studio Yotta.

 

Glass Joe’s Title Fight

The weakest boxer from the 1984 arcade game ‘Punch-Out!!’ attempts to take on the strongest boxer in the same game, Mr. Sandman.

This video was collaboratively animated by a collection of Starbomb fans.

 

Regretroid

Samus, the hero of the Metroid game-series, is tired of being treated differently based on her gender.

Emily Hughes lends her voice to Samus, while Dan Avidan voices the Space Pirate dragon Kraid.

 

Crasher-Vania

The vampire killer Simon Belmont crashes Dracula’s cool monster party, completely ruining their evening.

The video was animated by Cas van de Pol.

 

The Simple Plot of Metal Gear Solid

A talk-show about simple plots in video games gets interrupted when Snake from ‘Metal Gear Solid’ shows up uninvited.

This video was also animated by Studio Yotta.

Top 5 Songs from ‘MoS: Level 7’

Back in February, I shared my favorite song from each ‘Miracle of Sound’ album.

This proved to be very difficult, as there are so many great songs there!

So I have decided to make a Top 10 or Top 5 list for each album, depending on how big the album is to begin with.

 

5. Mother Of Flame

A song about one of my favorite ‘Game Of Thrones’ characters, Daenerys Targaryen.

The Unburnt, The Breaker of Chains and The Mother of Dragons!

 

4. Hell To Pay

I love this song for many of the same reasons I love DOOM, the game this song was based on.

 

3. Get The Gang Back

‘Overwatch’ has in many ways captured the spirit of good character-based cartoons like ‘The X-Men’, and this song would be a great theme-song if they ever were to make this an actual television program.

I would so watch that!

 

2. The Path

Another song based on ‘The Witcher 3’, this one focusing on the ‘Blood and Whine’ expansion pack, the end of Geralt’s journey in the games.

An ending I prefer over his ending in the books.

 

1. The Man Who Rocked The World
