Back in 1986, after a lot of childhood TV watching, the powers that be got serious with Transformers and made it more badass, darkening it some. They brought us a PG rating with big-people words, more dramatic character development, and decidedly a killer soundtrack (especially for the time), including a glam metal redux of the main Transformers theme.

Whilst air guitaring (the only form of guitar I play, probably to everyone's benefit) this theme in my mind and waxing nostalgic, as many 80s kids surely do, I decided I would flex my chiptuning muscle by writing a NES rendition of it in anticipation of the upcoming Transformers live-action movie. The Contra drums were a bit hard, so I tried the Super C drums out on this one. I think it came out rather well.
