Street Fighter 2 rock opera has famous fighters sing their hearts out

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Indie music group Man Factory recently concluded their six-year battle to translate the universe and characters of Street Fighter 2 into a rock opera. No, you are not hallucinating, and yes, you did read that right: a rock opera.

"Street Fight" is a series of three albums released on Bandcamp that centers its story on Chun-Li and Ken, though other characters also make appearances and sing songs. Chun-Li seeks revenge on M. Bison for the death of her father, while Ken is punching his way through feelings related to his girlfriend's tryst with buddy Ryu.

Here's some of our favorite lyrics: "Blanket off I'm takin' off I'm gettin' outta here. How come she always mentions him? Could she be shy-yuken my best friend?" If it weren't referencing the wrong game, we'd call this a flawless victory.
