Ch-ch-check it out:
(64K is the name of the “band”; 1337 is the song, noobs.)
I found this on boingboing. I usually don’t like just blogging a link without any meaningful comment, but since this one combines at least three of my top ten favourite pastimes–videogames, incredibly lame rhymes and interneticana–I couldn’t resist. I nearly choked on my Coco Pops when the PC-phreak (“never owned a console, just a PC…”) spat his Adrock-influenced verse about pwning noobs, and you will too… Seriously, watch out for that one.
The fact that they somehow managed to shoehorn a potted history of the entire videogame industry from Commodore 64 to SNES to Playstation into a five minute rap is surely further evidence of their comedic genius. And I’ll certainly remember to wear my safety goggles in future when I’m dropping finely-crafted raps and racking up frags in UT2004, that’s for sure.
Hey, wait a minute: “rackin’ up frags” rhymes with “capturin’ flags”, right? I think I feel a rhyme brewing already.
