Rhythm Heaven Remix

“When You Were Young” by The Killers
Syncs with: Space Soccer

Okay, this totally restores our indie cred, right? Right?

“Short Skirt/Long Jacket” by Cake
Syncs with: Crop Stomp

Awesome song, fits perfectly with the level. Not only that, but we’ve discovered it also syncs up with Remix 2, Freeze Frame and Splashdown quite nicely as well.

“Enter Sandman” by Metallica
Syncs with: Glee Club

This one gets top honors in our list because it is the only tune that actually sounds like its game counterpart. Those cute little imps sing just like James Hetfield and look about as manly, too.


There’s our list: If you feel the urge to see if your favorite tune syncs up with a Rhythm Heaven arrangement, just find a BPM counter online and test ‘em out to see if you can get a match. If you find a gem, let us know about it in the comments!

    Dragostea Din Tei (the Numa Numa song) sincs nicely with Space Soccer. That's a gem if I've ever seen one.

  • GeneralTickTock - May 5, 2009 4:38 a.m.

    yeah i couldn't figure out some of the songs, but it was pretty funny, if nothing else.
  • Romination - April 29, 2009 4:10 a.m.

    you should have found somewhere to match up helix nebula nothing like a shameless plug for the podcast, i always say!
  • bocaj - April 29, 2009 2:56 a.m.

    Cool idea! Almost enough incentive to buy the game itself! (Almost...) Also, a pretty funny article!
  • Ravenbom - April 29, 2009 12:54 a.m.

    I thought this was pretty awesome! The MGMT and Cake ones were my favs.
  • CNnegative1 - April 28, 2009 11:47 p.m.

    It has The Darkness in it... allready gets an 11 out of 10 in my book. We all believe in a thing called love...
  • kubes - April 28, 2009 10:35 p.m.

  • purpleshirt - April 28, 2009 9:58 p.m.

    while it is the darkness riodoku... i'm not sure your allowed to say its not all that great when its got the fucking darkness in it. I found this article much more amusing then I thought I would, considering i'm obligated to hate this game.... ReCAPTCHA: is that an s? maybe it is... hmmm oh no thats an a "slabbed pleaaart
  • riodoku79 - April 28, 2009 9:33 p.m.
