'We are ROCK-MEN!' CD keeps the Mega Man spirit alive


7:30 PM on 07.31.2011



See? What did I tell ya? Though Mega Man games may very well have gone the way of the dodo, the merchandising train is just picking up steam!

A few members of the Capcom Sound Team have joined forces to form a Mega Man cover band called ROCK-MEN. Their debut project, We are ROCK-MEN!, is a rock arrange album spanning both the Classic and X series. Now, there have been an absurd number of Mega Man music compilations over the years, but even though they cover a lot of the same material, the different styles of arrangement and composition keep the music fresh and, most importantly, fun.

In the demo clip above, the ROCK-MEN do their rendition of the Dark Man theme, the hands-down best track off of Mega Man 5. Just a few seconds in, I could feel my wallet getting heavier in my pocket. When this baby drops on September 21 for 2100 yen (about $27), you can count on me to be among the first to snatch it up like a relapsed heroine addict!
