The Kotaku Mixtape Vol 5: All The Cheesy Game Music You Can Handle

There is a very sick part of me that loves cheesy music and movies. I blame it on being left alone with basic cable in the 1990s: You couldn't change the channel without hearing some schmaltzy song playing in the background!

And so today on the Kotaku Mixtape, we're celebrating at some of the cheesiest songs to ever grace video games.

Some of these songs are great, like the silly and glib "War's Never Been So Much Fun" from the Amiga game Cannon Fodder. Others, like "Bundle of Nerves" from the 3DO game Virtuoso, are despicable, foul things that perhaps are best left forgotten. That said, they all have one thing in common: They're all teeth-grindingly tacky.

Check the video above to experience the tackiness.
