Have a listen at this.

Now, what do you suppose is responsible for that Gord-awful distortion? The Ogg encoder? Nope. My decompression code? I wish. The AUS encoder? Also negative. No, ladies and gentlemen, that is the sound of some idiot at Capcom recording this track at such high volume that a good 15-20% of the samples get clipped to fit in a signed 16-bit integer.

How exactly did this get past quality control? Even a deaf person could have told you this would sound funny, just from looking at the wave form.
