Apologies to Joss Whedon, Nerf Herder, and the citizens of Sunnydale.
I recorded this a few years ago just for the hell of it and never thought it would see the light of day. Then, a few weeks ago, a friend said he needed a cover of the Buffy theme song for a special benefit compilation to help raise money for another friend fighting cancer. I’m glad this song was able to help in any small way because I never thought it would be anything more than a ridiculous way to spend an afternoon, and I hope any funds raised help a fellow Buffy fan through her fight with cancer. (Read more about her progress here: http://blondsinboots.com/)
So obviously this is a chiptune-style take on the Buffy theme song. I added the second “Death to Dru” part, a simple original riff, because I thought it sounded cool. For any chiptune purists out there, I freely admit that I totally cheated and recorded everything through GarageBand plugins. I just fiddled with them until they sounded right. The drums were programmed on the 8bit Drummer app. No hacked Gameboys, no Milkytracker, nothing. Maybe someday.
