I think today I’m going to throw you a bit of a curveball. Instead of a group who uses gaming music as their medium, how about a group that is inspired by videogames and base their entire work on one game in particular.

It takes serious balls to say that you’re starting a band that covers nothing but old video game music and there are very few groups that do it right. This week, I hope to share a few that I listen to on a regular basis and get you to appreciate how awesome the world of […]

Tuesday of my trip into the 90s snags you one of the most prolific songs of my generation. I hope you like Sonic Youth.

You’d think with the imminent arrival of Thanksgiving in the United States this week, that I’d be sure to dedicate the entire week to doing songs that have something to do with the holiday. Well, you’re wrong. This week’s MCoM posts will be about something else entirely…my love of 90s music.

As we move into day two of my week-long lovefest of the Japanese idol Gackt, I think we should take a second to see just how dramatic the chapatsu singer can be.

I return from a long ass weekend in full on weeaboo mode, so prepare yourselves for a solid week of Kamui Gackt. Who’s that you say? Oh just click and you’ll find out! I got turned on to Gackt (no pun intended) years ago during the era of Napster or was it Kazaa when you […]

I always knew that one of the musical influences of my favorite band on Earth had to be Iron Maiden, I just never realized how much so.
