Classic Songs That Could TOTALLY Be About Video Games

Mike writes, "Music is such a fascinating art form because it is ubiquitous yet elusive. It’s something that can resonate by just having it on in the background. Songs evoke specific feelings and specific moments in one’s life, and when well-placed can transform a scene in a movie or game into something truly special. Consider the comic strip above. Jimi Hendrix died over 40 years before Minecraft was created, but that badass lyric from Voodoo Child has an entirely new meaning as a result of its existence. I love that kind of stuff, so here are some other songs that are almost certainly not about video games, but that sync up really nicely as a companion piece of sorts." (Animal Crossing, Burnout Paradise, Fallout: New Vegas, Hotline Miami, Journey, Metal Gear Solid, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yup, really. Garbage article. Most of those songs could fit a million games yet this author is pretending - even fishing - for connections that don't exist.

I don't see the point, and not news...just a garbage blog post.

And somehow I have 2 disagrees.
