If you ever wondered what would happen if Eggman (still Robotnik for some of us), Bowser, Ganon and Sephiroth managed to one day meet and combined their evil forces, you now have your answer: they’d form a boy band. Because what’s more nefarious than that?

Big Bad Bosses (or B3) is the collaboration between game composer Jake Kaufman (Shovel Knight, Contra 4) and a slew of faces from across the gaming community, such as Jirard Khalil (Big Bow) of the Completionist and Super Beard Bros, Nathan Smith (Sephy) of Nate Wants to Battle, Alex Faciane (Ronik) of The Dex and Super Beard Bros, Satchell Drakes (G-Ca$h) of Satchbags Goods, and several special guests. Their first album, Power Overhwhelming, features the team parodying some of gaming’s most recognizable baddies as they rap and chatter their laments of being the bad guys. You can get a taste of their antic in their released music video, “I’m the Boss”.

“Big Bad Bosses has been in the works for a long while. I’ve been wanting to work with Jake Kaufman for years, and after hearing the Shovel Knight soundtrack I knew it was time. I always thought it would be funny yet endearing to see into the hearts of the most famous videogame villains and to try to understand how they feel in the form of song, and the album came together better than anyone involved could have imagined.” – Jirard “Big Bow” Khalil

Power Overwhelming features ten tracks with a bunch of guests, including Grant Kirkhope (Banjo Kazooie), Arin “Egoraptor” Hanson (Game Grumps), DJ Cutman and a bunch more. The album can be purchased on iTunes and Bandcamp. For more, check out the official Big Bad Bosses website.
