In case anyone ever doubted it, the internet is the best thing in the history of ever. The most recent case in point: Over the weekend, political punk band Anti-Flag conducted a Reddit AMA, and buried underneath a wall of interesting back-and-forth between the band and their fans was this tribute from Reddit user LaffeSommerpels, who took the band’s classic song “Turncoat” and remixed it, chiptune-style. Sommerpels explains:

“When I saw Anti-Flag were doing an AMA, I pulled an all-nighter in order to make this little remix in their tribute, in lack of any interesting questions to ask them. I really hope they will see it, though. They’re a huge inspiration to me, and one of my absolute favorite bands, so it would be just awesome if they did! :)”

It turns out the band did see it, with frontman Justin Sane responding, “That remix is intense! Now we’re ready for the club!”
