This feature has been a long time coming, as every time I do one of these Musical Inspirations, I think about choosing one of these guys' songs, but always go for something else. I think it's just too obvious.
The Swedish-based New Frontier band produces music heavily influenced by the sounds of classic video games, and Hero is no exception. The lyrics also evoke the mood and thought processes that one sees often in JRPG characters, and can translate well to a "rockstar gaming" style of tabletop play.
I hope you enjoy this track and check them out further, though sometimes their music will make you want to play MegaMan or R-Type.
Machinae Supremacy - "Hero"
They try to beat me
but they will not ever defeat me
This time we're on my battlegrounds
I'm gonna win, trust in me
I have come to save this world
and in the end I'll get the girl!
I've missed it, so twisted
and unsurpassed in my head
This sense of power has awakened in me
I feel I could take on the world
a day like this
my rage is brewing like a storm
And now the storm has grown
out of control
Right here, the voice of anger
Cause now the fire
in our hearts explode
Baby, let's blow this joint
and build our own
Sometimes you just need to
level everything with the ground to
make room for all the things
you wanted somehow
And I have known it all along
the day is coming
when you will reap your evil ways
[2 x Chorus]
And build our own!
*As always, I don't own this, blah blah blah.
