Amp It Up

by NikoTengoku

The NES is ripe with tunes that totally had an electric guitar in mind for many compositions, so this month's mix is filled with tunes that have that energetic rockin' flair!

Whether it feels like hard rock, prog, or metal, these songs give you that instinct to want to bust out a guitar and shred! Let this 8-Bit machine rock your bits off!
