If you're a Weezer fan, or an 8-Bit fan, here's something that will give you a chuckle and/or a conniption: the classic self-titled first Weezer album, as heard harnessed through 8-Bit technology.

From the Pterodactyl Squad net label:

The songs on this compilation have mostly been created using original videogame hardware running home-brew software, and vary radically in style, from minimal 'one man and his Game Boy' compositions to 8-bit inspired full band performances. Pterodactyl Squad proudly presents the music of Weezer as you have never heard it before.
