If you’ve ever wondered what Green Day would sound like soundtracking an old-school video game, you’re in luck as a creative fan has put together a remix of “Give Me Novacaine” in the style of a Sega Genesis game.

Reddit user u/DilanGaming has been turning Green Day tracks into 16-bit video game sounding songs and is sharing his latest for the American Idiot track.

They also previously put together a similar-sounding cover of “Whatsername” and say they have ambitions to make more remixes, including “Wake Me Up When September Ends.”

You can hear the track and compare it to the original below.

If anyone remembers, I did a Sega Genesis-styled Whatsername a while back, and today I was really in the mood to make another 16-bit rendition of a more underrated track (also off of American Idiot). Here’s “Give Me Novacaine”, using Genesis instruments. Enjoy! from r/greenday

Hella Mega tour ticketholders have anxiously been awaiting the fate of the run as tours across the world began getting postponed and canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic.

News finally started trickling in that the bands would indeed postpone the shows last week.

The dates set to kick off in July with the Interrupters will now be moved to summer 2021. The new dates will be at the same venues and be announced soon.

“Hopefully this doesn’t come as a surprise, but as much as we were all looking forward to seeing you all this summer, everyone’s safety is our highest priority so we’ve officially made the call to reschedule all North American dates of the Hella Mega tour until next year,” the bands’ statement reads. “We’ll be announcing Summer 2021 dates with the same venues very soon, so hold on to those tickets. All ticket holders will be emailed directly with refund options as well. Please be safe, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.”
