RIP Chris Cornell

This is why Neil was and is the best:

You may have grown up with the tune or saw the parody on Family Guy, either way it's still a good tune.

Here's the 'literal video' version.

Here's the sweet soundtrack to the Sega CD game based on the original film.

The whole thing was composed by Tommy Tallarico, except for the main theme by Brad Feidel.

Future Shock

This Way

Destinations Unknown

Visions

Here's the original 'vocal' version of "Destinations Unknown".

Here's a cover track I found coincidently.

I've found that the original soundtrack to the original film has been posted on youtube if you're curious.

While Konami's Contra may have created the scrolling shoot 'em up, this one redefined the genre and made it fun!

Plus the animation is still some of the best ever done and still influences many pixel artists around the world.

A wierd mix inbetween the second and third in the series, X was more like an upgraded special edition than an actual sequel. Still, some good fun to be had and a couple of the tracks were altered somewhat. (Mission 1 received the most noticeable changes.)

Since SNK had to file for bankruptcy in 2000 shortly after Metal Slug 3 was out in arcades, the next in line was a joint venture between the Korean based MEGA Enterprise that handled the development and distribution, and Japanese company Noise Factory who mainly did musical scores. (They also did some of the music for the third in the series.) Because the two characters introduced, Nadia and Trevor, were created under MEGA's time of title ownership, they have not and will not be included in any future sequel. In any case, this is one of the best soundtracks from the series and unlike the prior titles, ALL of the tracks are completely brand new.

After the last one being handled by MEGA Enterprises, this title was bought back by the newly formed SNK Playmore company with Noise Factory still handling the music department delivering an awesome heavy metal mix soundtrack! All of the backgrounds and enemies are completely brand new (a lot were reused a number of times before). This sequel also introduced the 'slide-dash' maneuver, a couple of new Slug's, and was the first time in the series where you truly fought against someone else besides the forces of Morden. Yes, the second one had aliens in there but you still fought against Morden's troops mainly as well in the other sequels. Metal Slug 5 was the last of the series to appear on the original NeoGeo console and was probably the last great game for it.

The sixth in the series so happened to be released by year six of 2000. Out of the series, this had a less than stellar feel to it. In fact, I enjoyed the sequel on the Gameboy Advance better than this one honestly. The music did not fit the series nor did it get you pumped up to kick butt, plus a couple just seem like lousy covers or half arsed remixes of older tunes. The backgrounds didn't fit with the artstyle of the characters that haven't changed since the original and a whole slew of other bits made this more like the odd stepchild. You want to like it but simply can't. Ah well, here's the soundtrack for your listening pleasure (or displeasure). Perhaps you may find something about it to like.

The last 'true' sequel in the series went portable by being available on Nintendo DS and PSP, and was also offered through XBox Live Arcade. This one added something that was both new and rather odd. Two characters from the King of Fighters series, Ralf and Clark (aka the Ikari Warriors), were selectable players in addition to the standard main four original soldiers. Then with the revised version specifically for the PSP and then later on XBox Live Arcade, Leona Heidern (also from KOF), was added to the roster. The soundtrack was a better offering overall compared to the prior sequel yet still not quite true Metal Slug in my opinion. (Far as I know, both 7 & XX featured the exact same soundtracks. Not even 'subtle' changes.)

Here is the last of the Metal Slugs (outside of the odd one in the group Metal Slug 3D that never left Japan). Technically the third in the series designed for a pocket console (first two were on the relatively unknown NeoGeo Pocket Color that was much like the Gameboy Color), the soundtrack and even the game itself is like a mix to remix of all tracks and titles prior 2004. The whole package is very faithful to the original and has a number of bonus features to unlock. On a odd note, this is the only title to not have any of the main characters. Instead you are treated with two brand new characters that have only appeared on this port, Walter Ryan and Tyra Elson. The only real negative is there really isn't anything new here. Almost all of the sprites. backgrounds, and bosses are either taken from or based on previous sequels. And the animation isn't very smooth; it's workable but could be a little nicer.

Here is the last Metal Slug anything related soundtrack which for the most part is good though I can't say the same for the actual game itself. SNK Playmore thought to take the classic 2D game and make the transition to the third dimension. What could possibly go wrong? Well as it seems. Everything. The core gameplay and controls are atrocious, the animation throughout the game and cut scenes are wierd, and the dialogue and voice acting is plain godawful. They even tried to add useless talking and story to drag the dumb thing out. It seems out of the whole thing the only part they did get moderately okay was the music. This is a prime example of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

I have noticed that most of the bands that I listen to have female singers. Here's a list with a song that would be my introduction for you to them. Probably you've heard some of them ;) Metric - Hustle Rose Garbage - Vow The Ting Tings - That's Not My Name Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Zero Silversun Pickups - Future Foe Scenarios The Naked and Famous - Punching In A Dream Goldfrapp - Happiness And as a venezuelan, I'll recommend a band of young guys that have made a good impression: La Vida Boheme - Calle Barcelona I also listen electronic, but have been disconnected for a while and I know very little about today's supposed DJs.

Have you guys mentioned the new song, playing on the radio now, by Ed Sheeran called "Lego House"?? YouTube it. He even has a Lego helicopter in it. Also, someone made a Lego *version* of the video and you can watch them side by side. Funny stuff. I thought of how big the hobby is if it's sung on the radio, hehe.

I had not even heard of that one. It was nice, thanks for pointing it out.

Here is the music video with the Lego & original side by side.

The animator for the Lego version has done some brilliant work before. A couple have even been featured on the site.

To M4x18:

I've always loved Garbage, and listened to The Ting Tings and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Can't say I remember the others but now I have some more to add to my own playlist! And I'm sure I would be considered by most to be 'disconnected' from current musical trends, so I have no idea what real DJ's play nowadays really.

Here's the playlist for the best soundtrack in any game that has ever been and ever will be. Every single composition works perfectly within the scene and sounds great even outside of it. The game became the most sought after video game for the original Playstation and features some of Michiru Yamane's best work hands down. Even to this day, it's one of the greatest games of all time and considered a cult classic. On a side note, it was a direct sequel to Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, another title in the series with an impressive soundtrack all around.

Here's the soundtrack of a relatively unknown gem from the 16-bit days of Super Nintendo. It isn't surprising to me how good the music is with the name of Natsume behind it. (Even titles on the older NES by the company had good music.) The setting is a prime example of steampunk with its mixture of wild west and science fiction elements.
