Brentalfloss is a name that should be familiar to any Nintendo fan. The bald musician’s popular ‘what if this game had lyrics’ series – in which he imagines if a game’s audio had lyrics relevant to the game itself – has thrown up some real corkers such as Super Mario Land, The Legend of Zelda, and the Mii Channel.
This track is a little different, and more in line with Brentalfloss’ Starfox spin on David Bowie’s Space Oddity. A duet with Pat the NES Punk, who actually wrote the words for this (though Brent is clearly the better singer, sorry Pat), Nintendohemian Rhapsody is a version of Queen’s seminal Bohemian Rhapsody, re-imagined with Nintendo themed lyrics. And it’s not cringeworthy!
