We are devastated by the news of the passing of Gary Garcia, of Buckner & Garcia. Please keep his family in your prayers.

That would make Found Me The Bomb their last ever song.

RIP Gary Garcia. Might have to go and download and play through pacman fever. As a tribute to a fellow giant bomb fan.

#44 Posted by falling_fast (2472 posts) -

I didn't even know of them before they did the giantbomb song, honestly, but anyone who could make something like that must have been pretty cool.

Noooooo! That's the worst :'[. Rest in peace, Mr. Garcia.

Google doesn't help either, because the first link that popped up was a link to this forum....

Google is trolling me.

He did a song called Pac-Man Fever that was probably the first video game song that became popular. You could say it was the early 80's version of Basshunter's DotA song.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. It's been one hell of a day here, and having just spoken to him last week about our future plans and about possibly working on a batch of new songs makes this even more upsetting. He was an extremely nice guy and was always excited to do anything that would entertain people. Hell, he even agreed to sing about wizards and stabbing people in the face and neck without even questioning me on how bizarre it was. 
I hope you guys enjoy "Found Me the Bomb" and that you can tell we put a lot of love into it. Gary was (and still will be wherever he is) happy to know that 30 years after "Pac-Man Fever", people are still rocking out to his silly pop songs. 
And ignore the people in here making idiotic comments. It's the Internet, and there will always be insensitive jerks.

Ryan's reaction to the GB song was awesome! Couldn't stop laughing when I saw it.
