Pokémon Black and White Has A Presidential Theme Song

If you were in attendance at this weekend's launch fiesta for Nintendo DS game Pokémon Black and White, you might have seen '90s musical sensation The Presidents of the United States of America belting out their newest jam "Can't Stop (Catchin' 'Em All)."

If you weren't fortunate enough to bask in that pop pap, please stop kicking yourself—we have the song.

And we have the performance! If the above video of Presidents of the United States of America music set to Pokémon artwork just isn't quite doing it for you, live video of the event exists. Pikachu was there, getting the hell down to a rattling off of the latest pocket monsters set to music as were hundreds of Pokémaniacs.

See Pokémon's most dedicated fans getting more of what they love in this live video, courtesy of Nintendo of America. And who out there is deep into Pokémon Black and/or White, released earlier this week? We know a million copies have already been sold, so some of you must be playing this thing!

Oh, yeah. Lyrics (I might have misspelled one or two of the Pokemon names though):
