What is the old game that has come up on streams a few times, that has an absolute banger of a song? I think it was on NES or an NES-era system. I believe it was a top-down shooter where you play as an army dude. I don't think it's Jackal or Ikari Warriors but it's kinda similar to those. Any ideas?

Bionic Commando for the NES?

In the linked video a top down level appears after 6 seconds for music reference.

Vinny mentioned "Power Plant" recently from Bionic Commando, he may have mentioned its remix in Rearmed which is, indeed, an absolute banger.

No, I don't think it's that. It's definitely a retro/chiptune soundtrack. It would have come up on a West stream like Jeff playing the Mister or something, not Beast. The song I'm thinking of was a distorted, mid-tempo head banger kind of tune. And the game almost definitely had an overhead perspective, not side scrolling.

The original Commando (Bionic Commando is kinda related to that game too)? Jeff plays the C64 version at the start of almost every MiSTer stream.
