  1. i just found this awesome band called HORSE the band. they kick ass! they are kind like emo but instead of whining they make fun of emo and all the melodies are done on a keyboard sampling 8bit nintendo sounds. these guys are really cool, check them out on http://www.mp3.com/horsetheband if you are interested. does anybody know any other nintendo core bands? i really dig this genre.

    Actually, the techno oriented band Atari Teenage Riot features Alec Empire, who did some early Nintendo sampled tracks (before Atari Teenage Riot)... interesting stuff.

    Technically my band has a song about Final Fantasy 7 in one of our two lyric notebooks. We still haven't figured out how we'll play it, if we play it, but I guess that kinda makes us Squaresoft-core? :confused: ;)

    That is the ****!! Thanks for peeping me onto it!
  9. i checked out the NESkimos, and im not sure they count as nintendo core because they dont have the nintendo sounds with the keyboard samples and stuff. i heard about the minibosses on the NESkimos site but i didnt have time to download stuff. i guess its just hardcore with that 8 bit keyboard sound. ps2 doesnt count with cd quality sound and all....
