JaxiiRuff Most underrated earthbound album of all time. Favorite track: Snowman.
Shugs thumbnail
Shugs The music of Earthbound still holds up all these years later, but mainly because of a little help from a fantastic band. Favorite track: Fourside.

C Rambo I am blown away by this entire album. SSB's original funk fusion and jazz take on the source material brings it to life like never before. Each track is an expertly crafted tribute, and it is extremely difficult to choose a favorite. SSB is among the best VGM bands out there, and Motherlode is truly a must own gem for any Earthbound fan! Favorite track: Winters.

Verse 1 I step out the house, stop short oh no, Greeted by a punk bouncing on a pogo Stick i move quick getting got's a no no What kinda place is this? I don't know Not a city that you'd like to go There's all types of eyefuls Frightful foes, Mean Run away dogs, spiteful crows > the goal's survival so, maybe I should go Hook Got no idea where I am I don't know but here I am So scared I am.... Seems it's only getting worse now Kinda Wish that I was earthbound Verse 2 Now..As if I couldn't have more bad luck I see a cop but he's not but he's not calling for back up, I run, he gives chase and before he can catch up I'm slapped up..by some kind of Attack slug Usually I'd have a chance in this Match up But this slug isn't normal, he's mad tough Things aren't seeming to add up My town's gone crazy and I'm about to crack up! Verse 3 I see mice and ants that, are quite gigantic I'm tough and all but I don't Like my chances Reports say UFOs might have landed Trying not to panic but Hyped and frantic I duck into the 4th street bank When I'm greeted by A man named frank with a shank, My heart just sank, I'm trying to understand - man... What is this madness?? Must get past this Verse 4 Ayo There's gotta be an explanation, For this situation I'm currently facing Monsters are Chasin' and misbehaving And No one is coming to help---amazing! Shrooms are rambling, Punks are skating > Sprouts raising Cranky ladies complaining Thinking I'm their Plaything feet are aching World needs saving times a wasting come on Verse 5 I see a bee but can I trust him though ? Uncomfortable have been so untouchable FromTaxis to records, pumps and ghosts Even piles of barf.. now that's just gross Or Maybe I'm asleep and a dream is happening I'm tossing and turning, my team just laughing While I'm sweating weezing, weeping gasping And now they released The kraken Here we go!
