Naw, works fine, I guess.

Koji Kondo definitely made a few good tunes in the past, but think about it, he's reused those tunes over and over again since then. He's hardly composed anything new in over a decade. And with all due respect to the music in Zelda and Super Mario, in my opinion it still isn't as good as many of the other soundtracks out there (Faxanadu, anyone?). Still it's more loved and has attracted a lot more attention, possibly because of the fact that it happens to be in some of the biggest games.
Hey, I don't think reusing the music is his idea, it's more likely that the big heads at Nintendo wants to use music from past games to attract more gamers.
And besides, he's done some great stuff after Lylat, just look at the Zeldas and Galaxy.

A very interesting show indeed. But now I'm forced to ask you; the guy who accused you of seeking profit in your sale of demos, who is it? Someone from the community?

And please explain the deal about you thinking the Kondo is overrated. Really, what the hell could possibly make you (or anyone) think that?

Damn, must've missed that part.
I still think there would be no harm in submitting something though, if it's in violation of the copyright law it'll simply be rejected and that'd be the end of it.

Unfortunately, only swedish bands may enter, yes.

Well actually, the rules don't state that cover songs are not allowed.
And even if they did, you've written the songs yourselves, the fact that parts of them were inspired by miniscule 8-bit compositions from Koji Kondo changes nothing.

The radio station Bandit 106-3 is having a contest.
The contest, which is called "Bandit unsigned", is one where unsigned bands send in songs they've written, forty (ten from each of four regions in sweden) of which are selected by a jury for voting, which are the voted for by the station's listeners, and the four bands that recieve the most votes then play onboard a cruise ship, where one of them are crowned winners.
The winner then gets to choose one of their songs to be featured on a compiliation-CD (called Bandit Rock vol. 2).

Now, I know the members of Game Over suffer from a rare medical condition that makes them physically unable to play any kind of instrument while within a radius of 10 m of each other, but I really think you should at least submit one of your songs.
Because even if you DO have to perform live (which is unlikely, since the competition will be harsh) I'm sure that there's a good chance that your song will be one of the ten that are selected for voting from your region.
This is a good chance for Game Over to introduce themselves to a whole new audience (meaning lots of potential buyers of your demo Wink) and considering the trouble you'd have to go through to register (I can't imagine it would take more than fifteen minutes to fill out the form and upload a song) I really think it would be mentally handicapped not to do it.

The form to be filled out is located at .
Do it. The power of your local deities compells you.
