Since the official release of the first Natural Selection in 2002 and with its successor Natural Selection 2 ten years later in 2012, the community has shown great musical creativity.
You can’t have missed the famous NS1 remakes but if you ever did, this article will enlighten you and provide you with some Natural Selection lore and culture. Unfortunately, it became quite difficult to find information about the whereabouts of their authors so I leave most of this field blank. However, you can find the names of each particular authors below each video. There were two reasons behind those songs, a bunch were made by the FFT clan as they ran the ‘official’ web NS Radio station. The other was AUS NS (now AusNS2), who used to hold music competitions.
Don’t hesitate to step in if you get any more data, I’ll add it to the article.
One of my favorites are:
“A million Res Nodes” (If I Had a Million Dollars, Barenaked Ladies) ;
“Days of NS” (Twelve Days of Christmas) ;
“Gorges Just Want To Have Fun” (Girls Just Want To Have Fun, Cyndi Lauper).
Check out the full playlist and enjoy!
Coming out on NS2 recently, artists have also showed up and shared their creations through a more modern universe.
“Xenocide Song” by Robby (Paradise, Coldplay)
“Keep Medding” by Robby (Break Your Heart, Taio Cruz)
“Whip” by Skyice
“Can You Weld Me?” by Nights (Are You With Me, Lost Frequencies)
This is that kind of diversity in our community that makes it awesome. And you, which song do you like the most?
Eventually, if you personally performed a song about the NS universe, feel free to share.
