(Insound) I always consider split singles a Battle of the Bands, with a clear winner and loser. In the case of two 8-bit video game dance music nut rocker acts going head to head it's more like one of those arcade battles from King of Kong. And though both acts get to a kill screen, I think despite the intoxicating rapid blipitude of Starscream, the trophy goes to the cinematic skateboard theme music by Anamanaguchi which manages to convey both the technology of the flying skateboards from the Back to the Future trilogy and the whimsy of Teen Wolf, making this Michael J Foxtastic!
