No, it's not a Springsteen cover band composed of midgets, but rather a rock band playing covers of music from old NES games.

Download Mega Man 2. It's awesome.

There's some video here of them playing music from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and Rygar.

There's also a band called "Super 8-Bit Brothers".  It consists of two guys from the band "Tubring" out of Chicago (great band if you've never heard them).  Rather than doing NES music covers, they actually do songs *about* NES games.  :)  Some of the games their work covers are pretty obscure.  Good stuff.

These guys are going to be playing PAX again this year.  Last year, I missed them because I was participating in "The Omegathon".  If you're in the Northwest (or interested in a pretty cool gaming convention) there's just another excuse to come out.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, please reference:
