The B List: 10 Kickass 8-Bit Rock Covers

[Originally Published: May 14, 2009]

Back in April we told you the story of Scott Hannay, an Upstate NY musician who put together Umphrey’s McGee covers using a sound chip from the original Nintendo gaming system that were so good the band asked him to sit-in with them. Turns out, there is a whole community of 8-bit music makers like Scott who are creating their own original songs as well as covering tunes at 8-bit Collective. We made a list of ten favorite 8-bit rock covers…

1. Where It’s At – Beck
