There's a Black-Eyed Peas song (You know, the one on that "control the Black-Eyed Peas with the touch of a button" commercial) that reminds me of the opening from Battletoads.

Inferno by extol, there's a bit in it that really sounds like generic music from any 8 or 16 bit RPG

Extol rocks hard.

Still not sure if they are christian or not.

Yeah, Extol are Christians (or were, at least, the last time I read about them).

I just made one. It goes from the SNES version to the Playstation version to the GNR version. http://www.kylejcrb....ed_Michelle.mp3

They're all pretty much identical, so I don't think it's coincidence. Especially considering the use of the Guns N' Roses band members' names for Mavericks in MMX5.

it's not quite note for note, the very end of the melody changes a few notes around. the same thing goes for Demon Days by Gorillaz, very close but not exact.

The opening of "Baba O'Riley" by The Who still sounds like Duck Hunt's Skeet Shooting mode. It's also a motif in Metroid's Ending song.

The intro to Symphony X's "Communion and the Oracle" sounds a lot like the Shrine Island theme in Skies of Arcadia (it's played elsewhere, but that's the first place). The part just before the first chorus theme (without vocals) sounds like a slowed-down version of Crystal Snail's level (MMX2). The bassline in the first verse sounds like the Hellhound's room in Shadowgate.

And the piano breakdown in Rediscovery part 2 (The New Mythology) reeks of Chrono Trigger.

EDIT: Oh, oh! Vomitron's Contra sounds almost exactly like that old NES game. Shit, what was the name of it?
