This Cover Of The ‘Pokémon’ Theme In 20 Styles Of The ’90s Is Bursting With Alt-Rock Nostalgia

With the world still gripped by Pokémon fever, one man has taken it upon himself to combine said fever with a wall of ’90s nostalgia, including some of our favourite ’90s alternative rock acts.

Musician Anthony Vincent, aka the YouTuber behind the Ten Second Songs channel, has put together a sort of mega-mix in which he performs the Pokémon theme in the style of 20 different musical acts who made some serious cash in the ’90s.

The performance (below) sees Vincent recreate the likeness of Aqua, Smash Mouth and Destiny’s Child, but he also dials things up a notch by performing in the style of ’90s rock dominators like The Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Coal Chamber, Blink-182 and The Offspring.

Prior to Vincent’s ’90s cover, the Pokémon theme song had also been recreated by the likes of US metalcore outfit Issues and Metallica (well, sort of).

Vincent’s previous work has seen him perform a bunch of songs in a bunch of different styles, including Gorillaz’s Feel Good Inc. and Justin Bieber’s Sorry.

Watch his take on the Pokémon theme song, below.
