Doing things slightly different again today. The Protomen are a Canadian group currently working on a three-part rock opera based on... Megaman. The first part, Hope Rides Alone came out in 2005, with the second, The Father Of Death following this year. You'd think it'd be difficult to adapt the story of the original Megaman games, what with them being so complex and sprawling, and damn near impossible to make it worth listening to on its own merits, but in my opinion, they've succeeded admirably.
This is the title track and opening song off their first album, chronicling the rise and fall of 'the first son of Doctor Light': Protoman. Trust me on this one: it just gets better from here.
