Toejam & Earl was a send-up of 1980's hip hop culture, starring two alien rappers who were trying to get back to Planet Funkatron. Decked in bling and armed with nothing but tomatoes, the aliens had to take down all manner of Earthlings to repair their crashed ship. Toejam & Earl was a critical success, and it spawned two similarly acclaimed sequels. The music was appropriately funky, and with its killer bassline and laid-back vibe, "Toejam Jammin," is video game music to lean to. Groovy, man.
