Rendition of Killer Instinct theme song features joystick button guitar player, full band plays Ken's SF2 stage music The band, On Being Human, has recorded a sick rendition of the opening theme song for the original Killer Instinct.

This is a full band setup, and one of the guitar players even has modded joystick buttons into his guitar to produce additional effects.

Killer Instinct's soundtrack is regarded as one of the best around for fighting games, and this band definitely does the opening theme justice.

Hit the jump to check it out, along with another music video/song of Ken's Street Fighter 2 stage theme music being performed by On Being Human.

If you want to go further, hit up their YouTube page, and you can grab their songs off the On Being Human Bandcamp site.

I'm getting the KI theme yesterday. This is how it is meant to sound.

Beautiful covers with energy and emotions. Totally incarnates the wild passion that is fighting games and why 20 years later we are still here.

Powerglove have a [Fight On] remix on the Metal Kombat for the Mortal Man album.
It's also an awesome rendition/remix.

After seeing this, I just had to do some research on those guitar button functions. Now I want to make one for bass.

#7 you beat me to it... Also you guys should check out Erock. Just type out Street Fighter meets Metal on YouTube. His Skyrim meets metals s probably my favorite. He also does killer instinct. , these two are pretty good, but basic. Erock just straight shreds.
