Pterodactyl Squad pays 8-bit homage to Weezer

Our AFK breaks will be where we show something that’s inspiring, exciting, intriguing, or just plain cool, and hopefully you’ll pass it along to your colleagues.

If you’re into music, chances are you know Weezer and you’ve heard some of their hits, including “Buddy Holly” and “El Scorcho.”

Some intrepid musicians decided to pay tribute to the Los Angeles-based band by taking some of those hits and crafting them into clever 8-bit versions, giving them a chance at some free publicity while reminding us of some of the band’s catchy tunes.

Our favorite has to be the Castlevania-inspired Island In The Sun remix.

May not make it into your playlists, but it’s worth a listen just to appreciate how whole mediums can mashup.
