If you like music and are a geek you should give a listen to the band I Fight Dragons. The band incorporates chiptune with melodic rock music. Chiptune is new music created on obsolete video game sound cards such as Nintendo’s Gameboy.

Their latest cd is called KABOOM! and recently they teamed up with Nintendo to release an exclusive 3D video for their song “Save World Get Girl”. The video is available on the Nintendo Video service app if you have a 3DS. The band hails from Chicago and released two EP’s before they released KABOOM!, their first full length cd.
