Release Info

“Merry Bitsmix” presented by Earworm Arcade

A tasty, minty holiday release brought to you by MadHatter of the Earworm Arcade podcast.

It’s always been a tradition for Hatter, a hapless nerd, to play chiptune covers of Christmas music and tracks from old videogames that are attached to the holiday season.

Since Earworm Arcade will be launching early next year, he wanted to kick things off by sharing a bit of his collection with you – Christmas holiday-ish songs from classic games that you may or may not have heard before.

We hope you enjoy it! Feel free to add these tracks to your personal collection and spread this album far and wide to get the spirit of Bitsmix goin’ all over the world. 🙂

Legal-ish notice and final notes

Earworm Arcade is MadHatter’s passion project dedicated to preserving our videogame music history.

Much like’s excellent working collection of DOS and arcade games, this is not meant to promote piracy of all things or to try and make money off of other people’s work – it’s simply to archive and listen to common and rare audio from our favorite games of the past, sharing and enjoying it well into the future.

In other words, folks, please don’t sue us or send takedown strike forces down on our content. If you can prove that your are one of these developers, publishers, or musicians that worked on these games and you would like your music removed, please contact us and we will take them out of this release quickly and without question out of respect. However, please do consider letting them continue to exist to preserve your work for our next generations.

The entire project as a whole has taken years of collecting, researching, tagging (sometimes retagging), and sorting to come up with a truly epic collection. Some of the tracks you will find on Earworm Arcade were ripped by Hatter, others were found uncredited from services like Napster and Limewire wayyyy back in the day, and others were added from esteemed rippers in the community. However, no credits have been given to who originated the rip because it would be impossible for him to go back and remember every source he’s used over the years. Instead, he would like to give a shout-out to three entities in particular, because a good chunk of his recent finds are from them: Ruiner9 (from PixelTunes Radio), nx666 (from the AudioPanicRoom Podcast), and the staff at khinsider. They deserve all of your love.

As we said, these mp3s are obviously not for sale or behind a paywall of any sort. However, If you would like to contribute anything to the overall mission of the Scrub Club Collective and to make sure we can pay our server storage fees, buy rad equipment for our Let’s Play series (Scrub Budz!), and keep creating awesome IRL events, feel free to click the PayPal button above.

Much love to all of you. We must keep our gaming legacies alive! It’s our quest.
