Listen to Classic ’90s Alternative Rock Songs Transformed Into 8-Bit Versions

Subscribe to on

There’s something special about 8-bit music, isn’t there? The lo-fi and simplistic sounds, somehow, open our ears to a world of music we never knew existed — do we dare call it magical?

If you don’t agree, just wait until you watch the video above. Youtubers Filthy Frackers put together a compilation of some of the greatest songs to come out of the ’90s alternative rock scene — and not only have they transformed the music into 8-bit versions, they’ve reimagined the music videos and bands as retro video games, too.

Our challenge to you: Watch the video and see if you can name every band and every song. Some of them are instantly recognizable while others might take a couple viewings to figure out.

Regardless, sit back, press play and have fun, and let us know your guesses in the comments section below!

And if you feel like you’ve got everything figured out, we’ll reward you with another 8-bit metamorphosis: Temple of the Dog’s ‘Hunger Strike.’
