Boss Battle (MetalMan) featuring the Megas produced by The Megas
If you’re not familiar with The Megas, then dig up some info on them! They’re a rock band out of Southern California that loves Mega Man so much, that they replay the songs and add lyrics to them describing the game, or Mega Man’s feelings… almost like what I did with “Mega Ran.”

I heard a few of their tracks and was so excited, so I contacted Greg, one of the band members, about us doing a collaboration track. My favorite track of theirs was “Metal Man,” and in this song they play the part of the boss Metal Man. So I got an idea that I should jump on it and play the part of Mega Ran, and we could talk a little smack back and forth before we fight. This song wound up going from a very experimental song to one of my favorites, almost overnight. I wanted it to be cheesy, and fun, and that came across well. I had an opportunity to perform this live with The Megas at the House of Blues in San Diego, and that was a blast.

Sidenote: both Dan and DN3 had a very hard time mixing this one, and I have to thank both of them for sticking in there. DN3 had never mixed rock vocals before, and prior to “Mega Ran,” Dan hadn’t mixed hip-hop vocals. So the album was an experiment and learning experience for everyone involved.
