I’m going to state an opinion that many will probably find terrible but even more secretly have and won’t admit.
I love Crush 40.
I suppose being a child of the 80’s this shouldn’t come as a surprise–in an era where endlessly upbeat rock songs was a requirement of most soundtracks, this group’s music for the Sonic series of games struck a nerve. They made what would likely be completely terrible games palatable for me…more or less.
Thing is, I love me a good, cheesy time. It’s a hard balance to strike, but when it is struck, it makes me so incredibly happy.
