Before there was Weezer, there was Weeze, and before that, Elisha Cuthbert had an NES console. At least, that’s how I’d start the music video for “The 8-bit Album.”
But don’t get your hopes up. This isn’t a Weezer album. Well, it is, sort of. It’s more like a this-is-what-Weezer-would-have-sounded-like-on-a-25-year-old-arcade-game album. It’s experimental. It’s childish. It’s adding a happy hardcore remix to two genres that are already too far juxtaposed.
This was my 2nd-favorite track. You’d never know from listening to it that it was released in 2009. I was planning to upload the Bit Shifter cover last month instead, but I just didn’t like the choice of (original) lyrics in that one. 8-Bit is Creative Commons licensed.
