I can barely contain my exictment right now I have just discovered the best collaberation thus far between geek + music!!! what is this collaboration your asking? Iconic punk rockers Sid & Nancy turned into Peach & Mario from Super Mario, woot! The merging of nintendo & punk comes curtasy of Butcher Billy who I just found out about via Buzznet's own superstar Elrich.
The collaboration came about when Nintendo World invited Butcher Billy to put his own spin on the classic Nintendo characters Mario the fire throwing Italian plumber & the always captured Princess Peach. Looking to real life bad-asses Sid Vicious of iconic 1970s punk band the Sex Pistols & his girl friend Nancy Spungen for inspiration.
In my book it really doesn't get any better than this, if only it was being made into a game for realz, that would be epic. I'll settle for a t-shirt though.
