Reliving our childhood with Joy Division.

One of the fondest memories I have of my childhood is spending countless hours fucking around with Mario Paint on my SNES, making proto-GIFs and attempting (and failing) to create the definitive chiptune rendition of The Smith’s "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out". (It seems that no one's cracked it on Mario Paint just yet, but here's an 8-bit version of the track.) While an SNES is a rare sight these days in most living rooms, Mario Paint has seen something of a resurgence thanks to publicly shared emulators and trademark Millennial boredom. Some beautiful genius spent their time recreating our favorite track from Joy Division's 1979 single, "Transmission". Check it out below:

Before you spend the next two hours mining YouTube for other Mario Paint gems, check out these renditions of Kraftwerk's "The Robots" and Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit":
