Metal Mario: The heaviest version of Mario.
We love video games. 

We love heavy metal.

Naturally, there's only one thing to do: share some heavy metal versions of video game theme songs!

There are plenty of quality covers of video game theme songs, and these are some of our favorites metal reinterpretations of some iconic gaming music. If you see any other heavy metal video game covers that we need to be made aware of, please send them our way. 

Until then, enjoy the videos below, because it's never too early to start rocking!


The Super Mario Bros. Castle theme, death metal version. 

There always has to be a Super Mario song in one of these lists, and these guys get it for choosing a song other than the main theme.

The Mortal Kombat metal theme

Props to this guy for taking a pretty heavy techno song and making it into an even heavier metal song.

Kraid's Lair from Metroid, symphonic metal version

A nice cover and a good performance, plus the video playthrough of Metroid is damn impressive.


The Legend of Zelda theme

Playing a video game cover on YouTube is one thing. Playing one live on stage is something completely different.


 The Tetris theme

One of the catchiest video game themes of all time now sounds more epic than ever before.
