Whats the difference between chiptune and 8 bit?
So I absolutely love Henry Homesweet, Unicorn Kid, 1-800-ZOMBIES, bubblegum octopus, Shirbon...And some say on youtube it's 8 bit and other people say they love chiptune. Is there a difference or is it all the same?

8-bit is a subset of chiptune. That is, all 8-bit is chiptune, but not all chiptune is 8-bit.
The difference is that 8-bit uses sound from 8-bit systems only, chiptune can use 16-bit or other sound chips. Yikes! :-)
