As iconic lightcycles and neon grids become a firm fixture in popular culture, we picked eight music videos to show you just how widespread TRON became!

HYPER CRUSH

If you don’t know Hyper Crush, let’s just say one thing: they always leave a trail of neon swag in their wake. Too bad that sort of neon doesn’t match well with Tron. Or with anything else, for that matter.

INFERNAL

Have you seen Tron:Legacy? Daft Punk’s soundtrack is 10/10, visuals are top-notch, plot and story are beyond cliché. Our favourite scene? The fight scene in the club with the Daft Punk DJs. That’s a proper future boo-yah! Unlike this one.

A1

Cheesy as it gets! This is how A-Ha’s classic hit `Take on Me` is turned into a cliché-infested, pre-eurotrash-nineties “cyber” extravaganza.

BARELY POLITICAL

Geek humour meets our worst music video compilation with a cyberspace accent. I think this is the place where we have to note that the concept of glowjob is the second best thing Tron gave us.

LOUIS COLE & GENEVIEVE ARTADI

Surprise, surprise, one of the rare music videos in this post that doesn’t have lightcycles! A very good blueprint for a “How to Tron Out Without Spending Money on Design” course.

COMPUTERS WANT ME DEAD

Taking ones and zeroes, phong shading and riding the cyberspace to the next level! Our personal favourite from this compilation so we’re not really willing to debate the greatness!

THE MELISMATICS

A surprisingly good video, the only serious drawback is the lack of lightcycles… again! Nice indie dark europop!

TIMO MAAS

How come there aren’t more club tracks with Tron music videos? Why are we even trying to drown the world in cyberspace clichés? What do you think?
