I'm not usually too into rock remixes of 8-bit songs, but I like Castlevania Judgment's soundtrack quite a bit. Especially this rendition of Bloody Tears.

There's a few I can't really comment on since I don't know the original or never even played the games... but it seems like a good list.

I can't for the life of me think of a good remix right now... the only thing that pops to mind is the Final Fantasy prelude theme which has been done so many times. I still think the best one has to be in Final Fantasy VI... it just stays so classic without all the extras they added in other renditions.

EDIT: Wait... being on the Final Fantasy topic, not exactly known for remixes since a lot of songs are originals, but my mind was blown when I realized there actually was a remix of an old song in IX, all the way back from II (NES).

Final Fantasy II - Castle Pandemonium

Final Fantasy IX - Pandemonium

Of course back then I didn't really have access to game soundtracks easily and never played Final Fantasy II so I could never make the connection until much later when someone pointed it out. It's amazing how it's the same song yet sounds so entirely different and awesome.

I absolutely LOVE the 'Kill or be Killed' No More Heroes remix, it was so awesome hearing that for the first time in the game.

Originally from the Mother games.

IMO it's 02 hands down.


Creepiest boss ever, BTW:

That's a good one. I guess I never payed attention to it because I haven't played Kirby 64. I usually don't care about remixes I hear in games (sometimes I dont even know they are remixes) unless I've played the original game.

I love, Love, LOVE, that Ridley Fight remix from Brawl, and I've never really gotten over how awesome the soundtrack for Castlevania Judgement is in contrast to how awful the game is.

Some of my favorites:

Someone should mash up the Metal Gear Solid theme with Go KK Rider!
