What are the best Megaman songs? There is enormous variation in the answers we've seen - mostly because nearly every Megaman song is awesome in its own way. Everyone has their own particular tastes in VGM - go to almost any Megaman song on Youtube and you'll see the inevitable top comment: ʺ[Insert robot master] is the best Megaman song EVAR!!! :Dʺ But obviously they can't all be the best.

Looking at what others have done for megaman music rankings, we couldn't help but feel that many lists were deficient. One ranking had Fireman in the top 10 (what.); another had Strikeman as number 1 (WHAT.). Many other rankings were pretty good, but we wanted to see if we could break through the limitations of our own personal bias and produce a more objective ranking. Megaman games played an important role in many peoples' childhood, and therefore those people can be prone to hold a nostalgic reverence for the music of those games. This is a great thing, but it invariably confuses the ʺtrueʺ quality of the music. For example, this why you often see Megaman 1 songs being ranked very high, when there are clearly more deserving songs in the later Megaman games. We wanted to minimize our own personal bias to the extent possible, and thus ʺVideogames According to SCIENCEʺ was born.

Do we claim to be ʺactuallyʺ objective? No, of course not; personal preference will always make an important impact. But we have been excruciatingly careful and methodical in creating this list; you may disagree with us, but it cannot be said that we were less than thorough. We'd like to post our methodology up here... but we kinda ran out of space in the description. However - we'd be happy to tell you about if you're interested!

Just an FYI to those of you who noticed that our N64 video was taken down:
We are in the process of contesting the judgment by YouTube, which we feel
is an incorrect interpretation of fair use under copyright law. We are
hopeful that the video will back up in a few weeks.

Where is Skull Man Theme ? This should be in TOP10.

Haven't watched the whole thing but if MM2's Dr Wily Stage 1 isn't in the
top 20 I will cry.

You really should've had the titles hang on till the end of each bit. I
left this on the background and whenever I heard a new cool song I had to
start rewinding to find which one was it from.

Author SweetLemonade90 (3 months)
This really helps one to realize how different MM2 music is from the other
games. Like, if I listened to a random Mega Man song without knowing from
which game it is, I probably wouldn't be able to say which game it's from
(unless it's a very characteristic song from that game), but I'll always be
able to tell whether or not it's from MM2 cause they all have that feel to
them.

Author lennonluiz0907 (5 months)
Uh... i guess Wily's Castle from MM5 is my new favorite theme now. Well,
three months are a lot, but i'm still kind of disappointed with your
placing of Proto's whistle... and Wily Stage 1 from MM2. I would happily
SWITCH them. >:(

Fucking hell man. I watched through this whole thing, and I hoped you
fuckers would have been smart enough to not fucking include Wily Stage 2 as
number one. I mean, come on. Solar Man, Cossack's stage, fucking anything
would have been better placed as one rather than Wily Stage 2. That song is
getting to be fucking annoying. It's not worth all this hype. Yeah it's
good but out of all the fucking Mega Man songs you ignored, it didn't
deserve 1st place. 

Author RedditRobot (5 months)
dr wilys castle stage 1 ;c

Author Google Plus Gives People AIDS (3 months)
Mega Man 1 didn't get enough love, but Dark Man was near the top and the
rightful king of video game tunes was at #1. Good enough for me.

Yes, that's right, contrarians. MM2 Dr. Wily Stage 1 deserves every bit of
the praise that's lavished on it. The love it gets isn't due to 'hype'...
there's no freaking monied propaganda campaign out there to elevate it
above other video game songs. The love it gets is organic and real,
because it's just that damn good.

Author FPSWordle (3 months)
Flashman? Diveman?

Author mileena wins (12 days)
I have seen all lists for mega man music and NONE have mm2 boss music, why
the hell not???? that song is epic, no love for THAT one?? mm2 boss music
is the best!! 

Author kdchmln (13 days)
Also, it's fair to not want to stick Bubbleman in the top 10 if you're not
into it, but to stick it at #35, say very positive things about it, mention
that it's the composer's favorite, and then not give any reason why it
isn't higher on the list just makes some of this seem kind of arbitrary.

Author Brian Arnott (13 days)
MM 1 Wily stage 1 and for the boss fights in MM 1 Wily Are by far the best
ever. Don't know how they got left off the list????

WHAT HAPPEN TO TOP 15 Megaman songs Video. ?? it had wiley stage 2, storm
eagles theme, sky lagoon, song from the megaman racer game, and many other
good ones that i cant remember names!

Author Michael Bosman (16 days)
I see people read my comment and those people clearly don't understand how
overrated it is. I used to love the song. But ever since Smash Bros had
that song revealed WAAAY back at E3, people wouldn't stop talking about it.
By New Years Eve, I didn'tl ike the song as much as I used to. Around
spring I just didn't like the song. NOW THAT SONG IS THE BANE OF MY
EXISTENCE. Around that time it started getting REALLY annoying. Also, Mega
Man 2 is NOT the best game in the series being that one, they didn't fix
the platforming and physics problem that was in Mega Man 1, there was the
most STUPID BLOCK PUZZLE IN THE ENTIRE SERIES *coughs* Heat Man's stage
*coughs*, and there's that one Stupid boss where you have to have FULL
CRASH BOMBS. Do any of the other Mega Man games besides Mega Man 1 have
flaws like that, NO. They tried to fix it in Mega Man 3 and it turned out
okay, then it was finally made properly in Mega Man 4 and onward. Also if
anyone is wondering, I liked Sheep Man from MM10. So EAT IT YOU NERDS!

Author Etienne Desilets-Trempe (26 days)

Cut Man, a honorable mention? And Cossack 2, which should be at least top
10 material? I SO don't agree with this. ^^
But opinions are opinions, I guess. ^^

I totally agree with the fact that the best Megaman 8bit series soundtrack
is MM3. Magnet Man, Snake Man, Top Man, Hard Man, Spark Man, MM3 Title,
Needle Man are just awesome the weakest songs of them in my humble opinion
are Shadow and Gemini man.
