Ya, this one's pretty cool. I was quite surprised when hearing it too! I liked the old one too, but they're the same song just the new one has "Oomph" to it. ^_^ Thanks Shok! Good work!

The new music isn't too good, and I'll tell you why. It's too cluttered. The old song is just layered onto a new sample, but both samples already had separate snares of their own. They might match in BPM, but you can only have so many drum samples before it becomes an excess. It's like having two drummers in one band.

Perhaps more fitting is that it sounds like playing two flash movies at the same time. It sounds far too cluttered - like I had an mp3 playing at the same time.

Its too corporate! Remove the auto-portal! NG should remain underground! </sarcasm>

It's more chunky, which is good, I like. But I liked the chooser better. Sorry, I'm a fussy bastard. You forgot to mention the FDA and LHM t-shirts in your Shok plug :)

The new music is AWFUL! It's the first time I've had to click the 'stop music' button. It's bad enough as-is, but that vocal 'newgrounds.com' repeating every 5 seconds pushes it from just 'awful' to 'battery acid enema' level.

Change it back!

Hey, the music is great. What can I say? Most people probably like the new song because that was thier most favorite old one, with a new touch. Keep bringing in the quality music... major props.

I don't really like the new music. I liked it better when I could choose from 4 different songs. The one I always picked was the one with all the heavy drum beats... The one that was on the page before you changed it to the one you just remixed. Blah.

The vocals to me sound like "Newgrounds is awesome" with the awesome sounding a bit chopped up... In any rate I'm sure there's an "is" in there...

i really don't like the new music, i turn it off when i get to the main page. I like the LHM's old theme. ITs a bit louder and off beat.

Tom wasn't the one who created the mix, dumbass. Shok did it.

I like the music. I actually enjoy hearing it when I go to the main page. It flows so well with the site.

Hmmm, i like the new sound of it but damn does that "...newgrounds.com" get annoying fast. I love your music before this. Even your classic music when you were showing the byte size clips were better than this. But you won't change it cuz it's free music and a cheap promo. Cya->

I do not like the new music better than the old one. I know every one else likes it but i dont. Shure it dose sond a little better but it only lasts about 7 seconds then repeats its self over and over and over again. you should make a 30 second verstion. I dont know why i post this stuff up. Know one here ever lisens to my ideas and im not respected as a good member.

No offense, but after a little 'detective work' I see that the only people who seem to like the music are the ones that like anything that Tom says he likes automatically. I think that pretty much speaks for the new song.

The new music is pretty much what goes wrong when you layer two finished beats on top of one another - a whole lot of clutter.

And never, ever put music on a page that people actually read! Tha's a big no-no on it's own.
