A bunch of original and cover songs in NSF (Nintendo Sound Format) -- essentially relying on the same chip that your NES/Famicom used for sound, the 2a03. Just hit the NSF Archive. Requires a player that can play NSF files -- I recommend using the NotSoFatso plugin with Winamp. Some composers are definitely better than others, though. It's hit & miss.
There are several ways to make your own 2a03-style music -- but I'd say it has the best interface so far, as it's, well, a tracker. But, if you're new to trackers (or composing even), it still takes a little while to get used to it -- and given that it's still pretty early on in versions, there are still a few bugs. Also, there isn't yet support for extended sound chips yet (like the VRC6/7 or the N106). But, you all know how awesome the sounds could be with just the original chip. I'm trying to make my own bits of music now that I've got a better hang of the software -- but, I've got loads of other things I need to tend to first.
