Oh, my. What a piece of history this is to me. I absolutely must share and archive it.
This is a midi rendition of Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana (Or maybe it’s Smells Like Nirvana by Weird Al Yancovic, I can’t tell) on an oldschool midi card that’s getting harder and harder to find. It’s a hardware synthesizer on the sound card, so that means there aren’t even any soundfont packs floating around the internet to emulate this sound. As you can imagine it made most midis sound like crap, but WOW, doesn’t it make this midi sound awesome?
Found in an old Doom 1 WAD, back in the day when everyone used DEU and custom levels were all the rage. Recorded from a Windows 95 machine over to a capable laptop using a double-ended headphone cord. To this day, brings back fond memories of shotgunning imps and barons to this riveting music.
Ironically, hearing this song in Doom for the first time is what got me into liking video game music… and it turned out not even to be a video game theme.
