The Times Music And Gaming Collided

Prepare for addictive games and great tunes.

Issues have been performing an awesome cover of the Pokemon theme song on Warped Tour. See for yourself...

It got us thinking of other times video games and music collided, like...

Oh wait, that's right now...

PUP - Puptendo
PUP recently launched a racing game where you can either drive the band's tour van or 'Mabu', the car that got smashed in this video. Looking to kill some time? Get behind the wheel and give the game a shot here.

Fall Out Boy - Fall Out Bird
It's basically Flappy Bird, only with the faces of Pete, Patrick, Joe and Andy on your screen. Believe us when we say we've spent a good amount of hours flapping around trying to beat our own high score.

Bring Me The Horizon - The Witcher 3: Blood And Wine
Bring Me The Horizon's 'Blessed With A Curse' is featured in a trailer for The Witcher 3: Blood And Wine. Take a look below.

BABYMETAL - Super Mario Maker
Su-metal, Yuimetal and Moametal have been stuck together as one playable character on the Wii U game Super Mario Maker, complete with their own sound effects. Here's what that looks like...

Patent Pending - 'Hey Mario' 
These guys appear to be a bit obsessed with the Mario games. Wait, make that a lot. Seriously. They even wrote a song about it, which you can hear below.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Soundtrack
Featuring anyone from Goldfinger, The Offspring and Refused to Papa Roach, State Champs and Four Year Strong - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games always have the coolest soundtracks. You can hear the full soundtrack for the most recent game, Pro Skater 5, below.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes - Rattlesnake
Throwback! Frank Carter released his own take on the classic game Snake a while back and it's the best. Play the game (and listen to a great 8-bit version of 'Fangs') here.

Guitar Hero Live
The latest Guitar Hero game soundtrack features the likes of Black Veil BridesFall Out BoyMy Chemical RomanceGreen Day and Pierce The Veil, amongst others. Not bad, eh?

Panic! At The Disco - Panic! In Vegas
Brendon Urie and co. released their own game Panic! In Vegas and all proceeds made from the app were donated to the Human Rights Campaign, which lobbies for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. Lovely.

Laura Jane Grace - METROID ft. Laura Jane Grace
Against Me! vocalist Laura Jane Grace is a character in Punktendo's remake of Metroid, and it's brilliant. You can play the game here.

Falling In Reverse - 'Game Over'
Ronnie Radke and co. released their second album 'Fashionably Late' in 2013. One of the songs on the album is titled 'Game Over' and besides the video game-inspired lyrics, it's also filled with video game sounds.

...and here's a video of a game character moshing to Whitechapel we came across recently. Just for the lolz.
