Cue theme song

I don’t know how many of you cats are members of the Cheap Ass Gamer community, but I do know that a healthy chunk are musicians and the overwhelming majority of you are nerds with a penchant for gaming. In this instance, the former is even more important than the latter.

According to the latest edition of their podcast, hosts CheapyD and Wombat are in the market for an official CAGcast theme song. In addition to getting some regular play on a hugely popular (and recently award-winning) gaming podcast, the winner will also receive a cool $100 American. The winning track will be announced on CAGcast 100, which should hit the virtual-airwaves at the end of November, so you’ve got some time to familiarize yourself with the show and its unique charm.

Additional information can be found in this thread, and, of course, amongst the madness that is CAGcast 93; which, coincidentally, you should probably listen to even if you don’t plan on entering the contest.

CAG is one of the few videogame communities that eschews fanboyism in favor of actual content and “hardcore” posturing for nerdly interaction. Plus it’s the best place on the InterWebs for game shopping news, so I think this would be a great opportunity for some exposure for our nerdcore, geek rock, and VGM brethren.

Without naming any names, I am full aware that many of you are more than capable of crafting a competent theme song. So, does anyone wanna take a crack at it?
