Rock Out With Dr. Wily
December 01, 2015
Capcom's classic series of Mega Man titles has inspired plenty of musicians over the years, but we always hear the same songs from the games remixed over and over. Yes, the first Dr. Wily stage theme from Mega Man 2 is great stuff, but there's lots of other tracks that deserve some attention. Consider this medley of Dr. Wily boss themes spanning Mega Man 3, Mega Man 4, and Mega Man 6 from the Rockman 25th Anniversary Rock Arrange Version album. The word "epic" is thrown around so much on the Internet that it's meaning has been diluted by overuse, but this remix qualifies for a legitimate use of the word. Featuring an ominous choir, rocking electric guitar, and a hard driving bass line, this track is better than I ever imagined its source material to be. Crank it up, charge your Mega Buster, and blast some robot chassis!
