Incase someone doesn't know exactly know what 8-bit music is it is the music from the old gamboy and gameboy color games.  Anyways with me whenever I played a game with that music it was so repetitive and random that it would put me in a trance.  Seriously it would put me in a freaky game trance where I was completely absorbed in the game and could just go on for virtually forever.  And whenever there was a pause in the music it actually annoyed me like a sudden loud noise annoys you!  It's weird but I just wanna know if its this way with anyone else.

I was going to correct you here by linking some music that had been converted to 8-bit PCM to let you know what it really was but I decided that would not be good for several reasons including legal.

What you're thinking of may be more accurately described as chiptunes, and it goes beyond the realm of that wonderful handheld, although it does make up a large portion.  Others utilize the NES's Ricoh 2A03 chip to make music, and Commodore 64's MOS Technology SID chip, which is probably the most popular of them all.

TWEWY's Tin Pin Slammer music is great, too.

I'm glad there's a topic about this, as at makes me think of a question that I've been meaning to ask..

Is there a mainstream band that covers video game music?
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

Mainstream? Well, no. The closest is when Pixies did a cover of the theme from NARC, which was seriously awesome.

160bit :D
This is where naming the type of music 8-bit, 16-bit, etc. after their platform gets to be a problem, as if you say 32-bit music, I'm really going to start thinking you're talking about high resolution PCM.
