The Advantage

Named after a Nintendo controller, the Advantage offered their own brand of specialized rock, playing covers of their favorite NES songs. The idea for the Advantage began in 1999 at a talent show in Nevada City, CA, when drummer Spencer Seim saw a two-person band perform video game songs. He joined the group immediately, and after the two founding members moved to Milwaukee, Seim added high-school friends and Generic bandmates Carson McWhirter, Ben Milner, and Nick Rogers on bass and guitars, respectively. Signed to Kill Rock Stars affiliate 5 Rue Christine, in 2004 the Advantage released their debut self-titled album, and two years later, after replacing Rogers with guitarist Robby Moncrieff, their second record, Elf Titled, came out. ~ Marisa Brown

The advantage was an amazing controller. I still wish Nintendo would come out with a "power glove 2000" for the wii/wii u. I almost want to gut an existing controller and make one... But I don't do that kind of stuff and worry I might break something.

Saw them live in early 06 at "the library" i forget what city, but in Sacramento county. The drummer blew out his bass drum on the third song cuz he played super hard. It was amazing to see. Especially when they did Wiley's song the whole crowd was going wild. Ahh....nerds

The good thing about mega man is that when you go at a part you were at before and there was a life restore, you go back and it's there again. Morale of

I like their arrangements a lot more. minibosses seem slightly heavier at times and i feel like it takes away the tone of the 8 bit Melody's. black mages are even worse. advantage just pins down a great sound every time. their definitely side by side at the top position. you really cant go wrong with any of these bands tho.

In your opinion they're better than the Minibosses. The Minibosses don't mesh the whole game into 2 minutes. Go listen to Super Mario Bros. 2. 8 minutes long. You're a d-bag.

These guys are actually still active. They released their third full album back in 2010 (B-Sides) and their fourth this year (May 30, 2013, Rock Bottom: Live from Bottom of the Hill). I really enjoy the music here on Pandora, but I'd love to hear their other stuff, as well.

Doubly awesome to find a band that does video game music that isn't gutted by techno or heavy metal, and also to find out they're from my hometown.

these guys are WAY better than minibosses, they play smoother and dont mesh the whole game into 2 mins.

The Flash man stage music should be faster. I like the Minibosses cause they do entire games.

@coolkmt good idea might get this song and dub step that in!

I also think its great that their first album is self titled and the second one is Elf titled

I have often described Advantage as like mini bosses, but better and like The Black Mages, but without sucking or keyboard.
