Okay, this *might* belong in 'Other Bands', but I don't know anything about the piece of music I'm about to discuss, so here it shall be posted.

Basically, ages ago I had this demo game on my Win95 computer. It was like an early Ridge Racer type thing. Anyway, there was this *kickass* music in the background. Like, a rocking solo. I found the WAV for it back then and shoved it on a disk. I uncovered that disk (and thus, said song) a few months back. I've taught myself how to play most of it on guitar, but damnit, I just have no clue if this song was written specifically for the game or if it was by a band/artist I might have heard of.

Anyway, here's the MP3: Link (http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/megadave/song.mp3)

Oh, and I guess to justify this being in General Chat, has anyone else had any songs like this that they've thought rocked but not been able to identify? Or any fond retro nineties gaming memories?

Meh, haven't heard it before. It is a kick-ass song though.

However, to me it sounds like a song which was just written for the game.

Still, it's Namco we're discussing here, so I still wouldn't be surprised is this is some song from some kind of Japanese underground band.

EDIT: I have had a similar problem with the song from Battletoads :cool:
