Street Fighter 5 saw the addition of its first Season 5 character back in February. Dan, the Saikyo master himself, returned to the stage with a whole bunch of new tricks up his sleeves and an updated theme song.

The song itself is great, but what happens when bassist Alex Moukala takes a crack at covering this classic Street Fighter tune? Well, the funk is amped way up and who ever would have thought that Dan's theme could get this funky?

This bass cover was actually requested by Maximilian Dood himself, and this one turned out to be a particularly great choice. The quick clip of Moukala slappin' the bass treats us to a rendition of the track with all kinds of impressive and stylish flourishes to it.

Moukala's style definitely errs on the side of funky, and the skilled musician has put out covers for numerous other songs. Other video game themes can be found on Moukala's Twitter and YouTube, and there's even a pretty spectacular version of Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up that you should definitely hear.

At this point in time, it doesn't appear that a full version of the bass cover for Dan's theme has been uploaded. However, what we have is so groovy that you'll just want to let it play on repeat throughout the day.

Alex Moukala doesn't just play bass and make covers, but also provides analysis of musical pieces, produces music, and makes reaction videos to video game themes. Be sure to check out more content by heading to the proper channels, and click play on the tweet below to groove the funk out.
