In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris take a deep dive into their favorite gaming music and the real-world bands it came to inspire. There's a little bit of group therapy during a discussion on emotional end credit themes, followed by an exploration of the chiptune and video game cover scene. The episode is capped off with a little game of "guess that tune I'm humming poorly".

Bands discussed include: Tanguy Ukulele Orchestra, Smooth McGroove, The Megas, The Minibosses, Arm Cannon, Mega Ran, XOC, and Kirby's Dream Band.
