Duke Nukem Theme (Piano)

This is a little recording I created last year when I heard that 3D Realms was gone. While (rather ironically) mourning Duke Nukem's death I sat at the piano and played "Grabbag" (mostly known as the Duke Nukem Theme). Enjoy. :)

PS: And yes, I'm aware that Gearbox resurrected the franchise and will release Duke Nukem Forever soon, no need to tell me that. ;)

wow! how nice played!

Dang, didn't notice this response and also didn't expect one so many years later. Thanks! Sadly I'm nowhere near as good at playing the piano anymore as I was back then (and even then I cheated by merging two recordings).

Pure Beauty.

Duke listens to this while he reads.

F4LL0UT responds:

Lol. Best comment ever! :D


That came out a hell of a lot better than I thought it would, you took a more rock oriented song and completely changed it while still making it sound like the original. good job I hope to hear more from you in the future.

F4LL0UT responds:

Thank you very much. And yes, I'm seriously considering to create more such stuff in the future but it'll have to wait as I currently don't have access to my piano. :/

Nothing unoriginal.

I really enjoyed it. It gave Duke Nukem a second look into his life. What he must do for social means. After that, I wondered what Doom's E1M1 would be.

F4LL0UT responds:

I guess E1M1 will always just remain a MIDI cover of some metal song. ;)
Great thanks for the review.


I have a hard time playing this on guitar but you make it seem so easy on a piano ;~;

Keep up this type of work!

F4LL0UT responds:

Thanks, mate. I have to admit though that it's not as easy for me as it may seem. I'm not that good at playing the piano (unfortunately I don't practice much) and I needed many attempts to get a decent recording. Playing like this (especially while recording) totally stresses me out. And the worst part is that this is actually two recordings mixed together because I just didn't manage to create a whole run that I was satisfied with. I don't make it seem so easy after all, hm? ;D

Anyhow: Thank you very much for the review and who knows, maybe I'll continue making piano versions of game themes - I've already played some songs from Turrican 2 that I actually might record soon. :)
