Someone’s made Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ & Tool’s ‘Lateralus’ into Super Mario soundtracks

These sound like they come straight out of the '90s.

A new trend is popping up online where people are reimagining iconic albums as Super Mario soundtracks, and they sound like they’ve come straight out of the ‘90s.

A YouTube user uploaded Nirvana’s full ‘Nevermind’ album to the platform, but all of the songs have been remixed with the Super Mario 64 Soundfont. 

In other words, they’ve made the whole album sound like it came straight out of the video game Super Mario 64 - and it’s weirdly nostalgic (or so I’m told by my 35-year-old boss, I actually only lived through 5 months of the ‘90s.)

The video has racked up over a million views on YouTube, and Nirvana fans are loving it.

“Someone needs to make a 90s flavoured dystopian adventure/puzzle/sidescroller video game with this as the soundtrack,” wrote one fan.

Another fan commented, "This has to be the most 90's thing ever. But seriously, this is what the internet was made for.”

Nirvana isn’t the only band to get the SM 64 Soundfont treatment - Tool’s album ‘Lateralus’ also has.

Uploaded by a different account a couple of weeks ago, I reckon the ‘Lateralus’ remixes are just as good as the ‘Nevermind’ ones. Schism in particular sounds like it should be in a Super Mario game.
