The first documented band to cover a song from a video game was an all female indie band called Autoclave with their cover of of theme song from the 1985 video game Paperboy (the hardest fucking game ever tbh). Since Autoclave, a plethora of artists have emerged covering songs from video games, giving rise to the genre Nintendocore (or Nerdcore for hip hop artists). With an EP underneath their video game controller belt buckles and a full-length album due next Spring, Bitforce delivers super-charged metal inspired by your favorite gaming classics like their shredding cover of Pokemon theme song “Pocket Monsters”. So cash in those extra points and level up bro. Bitforce is the hidden key to beating the boss and saving the princess.
