Introduction To 8-bit

A good place to start for people looking to get into this genre.
1Horse The Band
The Mechanical Hand


The founders of nintendocore. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=4DsfkJGVdlM
2Monomate
Grand Battle


One of the only decent nintendocore acts that's not Horse The Band. This 19 year old's programming skills are insane, but some may be put off by his vocals and lyrics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjY89UQxTHY
3Les Trucs
Les Trucs


German nintendocore (that's the last nintendocore album, i promise) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PktdeFL7wo
4Anamanaguchi
Dawn Metropolis


8-bit driven instrumental rock. These guys are one of the most popular 8-bit bands for a reason. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8o-t7YyPUrE
5sbach
sbach


8-bit/math rock fusion from Spencer Seim of Hella. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki0mT62iQus
6Sabrepulse
Chipbreak Wars


Chiptune + breakbeat. Definitely one of my favorite 8-bit releases. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CDoRc338tw
7Unicorn Kid
Lion Hat


Surprisingly good 8-bit dance (http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=mdYGpwoSdFI) which has recently made its way into dubstep territory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doo1fVPu4c4)
8Impatient Outpatient
Remnants of a Paradise Lost


Another project from Peter Bunke of Monomate with a laid back trip-hop feel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amrWtZxVmSg
9Fighter X
Fighter X


A great introduction to real 8-bit. It may just sound like video game music at first, but if you give it a chance you might really like it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GSfB5YpI60
10IAYD
Supergalactic


More real 8-bit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp3zgnUDeog
