    Default Bands You've Discovered Because of Video Games.

    I got this idea from another forum. The thread is self-explanatory. I know a lot of people are going to mention Guitar Hero and Rock Band (or maybe even Crazy Taxi), and that's fine. But I also want people to mention other games.

    For example, a small part of the reason I started listening to AFI was because Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 had "The Boy Who Destroyed The World".

    PS: I know there are a lot of bands that some wouldn't consider very good that have songs in video games. In any case, please keep flaming to a minimum.

    I discovered Gob from NHL 200x(dunno the exact year), and a few years later from a newer version of NHL, I discovered Goodnight Nurse. Really like those bands.

Because ignition is born green and then ripens and becomes burn it up, which is yellow, then darkens and becomes a song that has yet to be published and will appear in a collection of b-sides and brown nell'accezione this song is a song from the session discarded of ignition.

    Apparently a lot of people got into Goldfinger because of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1. But it seems like no one listen to their new stuff. I always thought they could make a great ska album, but they usually just mix in a lot of different styles.

    I started listening to Offspring because Jeremy McGrath's Supercross 2000 had Genocide.

    Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines got me into Tiamat's "Cain" and others songs, and into Ministry as well. There were more of such game discoveries but I can't remember them atm.
    Before you speak think about what you're trying to say.
    Who else is there to blame for miscommunication?

    Does anyone remember an arcade game called Top Skater? It had "It's What You Do With It", "Homesick", and "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by Pennywise. I didn't get into Pennywise because of that game, but a while later when I did start listening to those songs, I was all "hey wow these sound familiar".

    Wow yeah. I remember people I thought were cool listened to Pennywise. And then I was listening to them while playing that game. I'm pretty sure that's how I got into although I don't remember for sure.

    I gave Oingo Boingo try #3 after hearing the Boingo Alive version of Who Do You Want to Be? in one of the Tony Hawk games. I think I got into Suicide Machines due to the first Tony Hawk as well, but I can't think of anything else really.
