Overclocked Remix is the home of some fantastic game music remixes in a variety of styles - from relaxing piano to higher tempo hybrid affairs. Have a rummage and a listen..

Some of my personal faves are the Xenogears remixes - mind you, the official rearrangement Xenogears ~ Creid is probably one of my favourite albums of all time. Fantastic music to work to. eBay it for a tenner.. ^_^

The majority of the OCRemix stuff is lousy. The newer VGMix has a better good to bad ratio right now (ESPECIALLY this damned cool rocking rendition of Shadowgate. The Zeromus theme from FFIV is pretty cool too.)

However, the best game cover music isn't on these sites, but rather, on the respective band sites:

- Everyone knows the Minibosses, right?
- In my opinion, the NESkimos are the best game cover band around. They have a lousy site, though (go here for all the music downloads, but you have to register [free] first).
- The Advantage is new and OK. Sort of a Minibosses wannabe, in terms of sound. IMO.
- And, of course, there's always Vomitron's classic Contra cover
There's a bunch of others. Try doing a search for "Temp Sound Solutions", or "Estradasphere", or "Hill Valley Preservation Society" (though they specialize in TV themes, mostly).

And don't forget GamingFM.

No trip to ocremix is complete without a listen to "Zelda, the music of my groin".
