MUSE - 8-Bit Covers

A match made in heaven! The Muse's space-rock infused brand of alternative blends perfectly with the 8-bit genre to get real video game-sounding songs. It works on so much of their repertoire that I included quite a few examples below, alongside a suggested in-game use for it.

"Stockholm Syndrome" (standard battle theme)

"Plug In Baby" (intro/player select theme)

"Knights of Cydonia" (world exploration theme)

"Starlight" (town theme)

"Time is Running Out" (dungeon theme)

"Hysteria" (villain theme)

"Assassin" (boss battle theme)

"Supermassive Black Hole" (outro/credits theme)
