Are you a "Bad Ass"?

 Proudly presenting OCremix’s lastest album, “BadAss: Boss Themes”, a tribute some of the biggest and bad-est bosses that you’ve ever faced throughout your gaming life time. You may thought yourself to have been a bad ass however compared to these heavy hitters you might as well he chump change! Who you ask, well lets see…. Kefka, Cobra Commander, Vergil, Dr. Wily, Shredder and more.
