This SID rocks so hard!!!
Great industrial / punk Crossover version of 720 degrees.
Great remix! It's a pity he decided to do no more remixes :(
I fxxxing hate this song. Doesn't sound like music to me.
Juha must never have had a 1541 disk drive because this game was hell on earth to load off tape, f'kin angry rockin' remix!
Uh, this is just plain odd. I did not even recognize it beeing from the game 720 degrees.
OK
Hahahaha!!! ROCK & ROLL m/(>. <)m/

well, this remix and his zoids remix are two of the best remixes of 2003. it makes a difference, if real guitars used instead of virtual guitarist or slayer... nothing against those progy's... but i prefer real guitars ! in this piece of punk-art you can hear a lot of noisy guitars, sounding punk'ish and that's good it fits perfect to the orginal tune...

overall it's a very authentic outstanding punk production,the only weak point: it's to short...

are they days of poser-heavy-metal all over ??? i hope so... ;-)

Parents! Cover your childrens ears, disconnect the speakers and burn them! Its rude, crude, quite possibly one of the best guitar based remixes ever, and its out to corrupt your children and frighten your granny!

Seriously, that Sumppi chap has outdone himself here. For one thing, the punk rock style fits the tune perfectly. 720 Degrees as done by The Clash? Not quite, but still cooler than a very cool thing. Another thing, those distorted vocals. I love 'em, but then, a distorted vocal could make Mr. Bean sound like James Hetfield. Some fairly harsh language going on here too, but appropriate. Believe me, I've shouted much worse when waiting for a game to load.
The faults, I hear you ask? Only one. Its too short. But worry ye not, you can put it on repeat play! Don't suppose it would be too much to ask for an extended version some time in the far future though?

Well done Juha, I look forward to your next one. Can I have my hearing back now?

This is cool. One little thing, you have a quite strong Finnish accent :-P If you could get it more americanized it'd kick ass

When I used to play 720 degrees down the arcades, I used to really enjoy the loud guitar music pumping from the cabinet. Here Juha has taken all the best elements of one of the main themes, added some crunching real guitars, which always sound much better when played live, and a distorted vocal about how long it takes the tape to load.

For those who complain it's too short, that's the whole point! Punk style tunes are meant to be this way, and it's been arranged with a lot of care and with those who enjoyed the original game in mind. Quite simply, thoroughly fun and enjoyable.
