Contributed by Jephso, Posted by Games and Technology

A group of video game music artists have gotten together and released a Weezer tribute album. The release features 8-bit interpretations of some of the band's biggest hits, such as "Buddy Holly" and "The World Has Turned And Left Me Here", as well as some of their rarer or unreleased tracks. The 14-track compilation is available to download for free at video game music netlabel Pterodactyl Squad,

"Do you remember that dream you had, where the sound chips from the beloved games consoles of your youth all got together and formed a Weezer tribute band? Yeah? No? OK. That dream is about to come true whether you had it or not.

The songs on this compilation have mostly been created using original videogame hardware running home-brew software, and vary radically in style, from minimal 'one man and his Game Boy' compositions to 8-bit inspired full band performances. Pterodactyl Squad proudly presents the music of Weezer as you have never heard it before."
