VGM Of The Day #5: M.U.S.H.A: Full Metal Fighter

Back in the 90's there were two consoles at war with each other till the death, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Genesis. For the most part they were evenly matched, but in one area there was practically no contest. The soundchip in the SNES blew anything the Genesis had out of the water. if you don't believe me, let's take a look at Guiles Theme from Street Fighter 2 on both the SNES and Genesis. Ok obviously people are going to have their own preferences between the two regardless of sound quality (read the comments on both videos), but in terms of the sound quality the SNES version wins.

With all that being said, the Genesis did have some great music if you looked in the right places. I know I am more of SNES guy, but if someone tried to tell me that the Genesis has bad music in it's games, I wouldn't resort to pointing towards the Sonic games cause that would be way too easy, I would actually kick him in the balls, strap some headphones on him and play this song. I wouldn't really have to worry about him retaliating because he would be too busy listening to this amazing song and forget he was ever in any pain or that he was angry at me. More importantly, he would realize how wrong his statement was.

The fact is M.U.S.H.A has a badass soundtrack and happens to be my personal favorite on the console. Seriously, the songs in it are so good that if the game itself was more popular, there would probably be people making some awesome rock arrangements of all the songs.

This theme right here plays in the very first level in the game. It has no intro that slowly leads into the badass part of the song, it's badass from the very start. It fits the first level quite well because right when you press start, the game doesn't wait for you, it just starts with you immediately shooting at incoming enemies.

This song is literally dieing for a rock/metal remix. Sadly the only one I found was this one and while it is good, it's the ONLY one I could find. Seriously, somebody please get four people together and break out the guitar, bass and drums so you can arrange this song.

Note: I did not upload any of these songs, both Guile's theme were uploaded by this guy and this guy. The song was uploaded by this channel and the remix was done by the Youtube user, onlycheez.
