The Protomen's tunes sound like something that would be the soundtrack to one of those ubiquitous montage scenes in various '80s flicks where the soon-to-be hero is training for his final challenge.
Over-impassioned vocals, fake sounding electronic drums, stirring synth lines, a mild guitar growl - this is surely what Mr. Miyagi would have blared to get Danny ready to kick some Cobra Kai ass had the Protomen been around back in the day.
That the group's tunes are all thematically based on storylines from the '80s video game series "Mega Man" makes total sense.
Or maybe it doesn't make any sense at all.
Either way, you'll be inspired to greatness - or at least some serious beer drinking - in this band's presence.
