Giant Mr. Saturn is Invincible!
Jeffman let me know about this the other day – there’s an actual band called the Runaway Five. They cover all kinds of video game music, not just EarthBound. You can check out their site here, where you can listen to some of their music. They’re based in Canada, so if you’re in the Toronto-ish area, see if you can find them playing sometime!
In fact, here’s an audio clip of them being introduced before playing some music. I especially like the guy’s puzzlement about the number of band members and the reaction everyone gives at the mention of EarthBound 😀
Also, here’s a lowish-quality video of them playing the Sound Stone song:
Now they just need to get in debt so some kids can save them. And if they have a tour bus, I bet ghosts don’t bother them 😛
