'Sock Hop,' Destructoid's unofficial MAGFest 11 anthem

Off Mega Ran's River City Random album

As I mentioned earlier during Mega Ran's exclusive album premier, Niero and Dale North fell in love with "Sock Hop" when Ran performed it during his MAGFest set. They loved it so much that they downloaded the song from Bandcamp right away and played it at the end of the Destructoid panel just because.

Thanks to the above video that online radio network 8bitX posted, you too can experience what everyone in the room felt when Ran closed off his set with his cover of the River City Ransom stage 1 theme. This is the song as Ran performed it -- he unfortunately left off the final verse due to time constraints. He did perform the complete song in the Jamspace room on Sunday, and you can also watch the official music video just below.

Don't be a square! Do the sock hop!
