Time Bomb!

March 30, 2009

Video games in the post-Super Nintendo era have never really done it for me. The 3-d gaming era brought too realistic graphics, too complicated controllers, too much complicatedness to the world of gaming, which takes away from the whole reason to play video games -to have fun (at least to me). One big exception though is the Guitar Hero/Rock Band series. Come on. Admit it. You’ve all had your moment with this game. My neighbor is a multi-hour per day Rock Band player, and I recently went and played the game with him. Evidently you can buy additional songs for the game . I was more than happy to see that he had a ridiculous (in the good way) live version of “Time Bomb” by The Old 97’s. I hadn’t heard such a high-quality live version of this song (the YouTube ones were a little amateurish) and I investigated it more. Found out that this version can be heard on their live double-album Alive & Wired.

For your listenning/and viewing pleasure:
