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, Rovi

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.
My grandma has the game
Follow me
I just found out about them and they haven't done anything since 2006??? There are so many old bit songs they could do!!!!
I wish they still made music.

If you look at the lower right of the cover, it looks like they killed some dude.
This is the best video game band.

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.

Nintendocore 4 LIFE!
35 sec song lolol
Real Good.
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 like the rock edge but wouldnt it be cool to have the originals playing along with it?
These guys obvisouly had a lot of time why not.
more plz ....... what more ca i say
davidschul
very cool layering of the guitars on the bubble man...especi a l l y like the pulloffs during the height of the song before it turns around
I love them i love the metroid music :)
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.
but advantage is better
travissnowbe r g e r
Minibosses did.
my question is: who came first, the advantage or the minibosses?
Only 1999-2006? Damn they were too good. Another good band fired? hope not but awalys there to g00d!

ADVANTAGE, MINIBOSSES, AND BLACK MAGES!!!!!!!

locoloco17
I saw these guys in concert.... just realized that, lol.
Zelda-Fortre s s . . . Song that got me here and the song that made me look up the rest of the album :)
First hearing these guys and I like it! So glad Pandora showed me this. They have an open honest sound. Like they respect the origin music well.
Of all the game cover bands I've heard, these guys have the most "authentic" voice when they play their guitars - it's kind of a bright, open sound. Very fun. :)

They played The Advantage album live at Case Western a while ago and I loved em. I'm glad they kept going. Still have the 8bit buttons!

LOLZ!
Though The Advantage is less hard and creatively altered than other VG cover bands, none have come close to their accuracy. Truly skilled musicians playing some of the best throwbacks out there.
anyone know an artist who recreates Super Mario music?
...armcannon . . . s o u n d s cool are they on playlist?
eclipsedream
Wow, that's awesome. Imagine my surprise to hear video game music being played quite skillfully on pandora.
Eh? "..how familiar it still sounds.." ? I still play my NES games! Just beat my brother down on double dragon 1 not too long ago...Chin FTW! Man...I've been gaming a loooong time....
shredda_doom
Meh, it's not bad, but there are much much more talented vgm bands out there, such as Armcannon (who aren't even on Pandora yet).
crazy cool, it was just a matter of time I guess, its amazing how familiar it still sounds
