I will never be able to answer the question "What's your first love: music or videogames?" So, I'm always happy when the two combine to make something rad. Such is the case with Tumblr Music History in GIFs.

Joshua Carrafa recreates seminal album covers and music events (from 1964 to current day) through pixel art inspired by early Sierra adventure games. Each animated image is complemented by a succinct description that will help your brains learn about all the important indie rock moments that appear on the SAT. From The Beatles to Vampire Weekend, the blog covers a lot of noteworthy bands with crude yet charming GIFs.

1990.  MC Hammer Scores a ridiculously popular hit, and popularizes some crazy pants at the same time. This made him a lot of money.  Then he hilariously spent it all.

Check it out along with Joshua's band Old Monk.
