Description

Rad Racer was one of the first (if not *the* first) racing games for the NES. It's been immortalized in the movie The Wizard. However, there's a better racing game on the NES and it is R.C. Pro-Am. Control a remote-controlled car around a track at break-neck speeds, all the while trying to avoid oil slicks and picking up letters in the publishing company's name. It was a blast. 

As the album closer, I knew a straightforward cover of this rocking tune would be easy, so I once again went in a totally different direction using some very different instrumentation to act as a coda to the whole thing.
