Rainbow Road – Mario Kart 8 (Meets Metal)

Subscribe to Q103 on

Rainbow Road. It’s a road that you go… when you die. Already extremely catchy and memorable (and made more iconic by a certain YouTube video), this week we asked Eric “ERock” Calderone to let loose on one of Mario Kart 64’s and Mario Kart 8’s best songs.

“This one especially fun simply because how much fun I had with the game itself,” Calderone said about the track. “I tried to keep somewhat of a dreamy feel to it like the game has, but also add an edge (and a very ’80s solo haha). I didn’t want to stray too far from the theme with fills and licks, so a lot of the notes are just held out. Great times with a great game.”

We think you’ll find this Meets Metal version turns an already awesome track into one more enjoyable than before. Take a listen, and let us know if you agree.

Written and Performed by Eric “ERock” Calderone
Original Composition by Kenta Nagata
