8-Bit Weezer

During my day job, the in-store radio torments me with all sorts of shit that could be considered akin to water torture. Lady Gaga, Pussycat Dolls and Akon are just some of the insufferable cunts that I have to endure on a daily basis. Now, not that they are in any way out of my line of fire, but at least hearing La Roux's new single the other day prompted a decent conversation.

My workmate commented upon the use of 8-bit synths which prompted me to start harping on about chiptune. I promised him that I'd post something about it for his benefit and I'm a man of my word, so here it is. If, like him, you have no idea what I'm going on about, just go do the obvious first: Wikipedia

Then, enjoy this delightfully odd chiptune Weezer cover album, produced by some of the genre's most esteemed performers.
