“Glosoli” by Sigur Ros

March 11, 2009

An exquisite song and video by one of my favorite bands, Sigur Ros.  The track below, “Glosoli” can be found on the 2005 release, Takk.  More about them at their official website.

“Freight Train” by Nitro manages to encapsulate everything that sucked about 1980’s hair metal in a single video.

As unbearable as it may seem, you must watch it all.  Learn from this people, for this can never be allowed to happen again.  Ever.

AC/DC video created in Microsoft Excel

October 26, 2008

While it follows the tradition of sounding like every other AC/DC song, it does at least look different.  The song is “Rock and Roll Train” from AC/DC’s latest album, Black Ice.

Worst “Iron Man” cover ever

September 21, 2008

These little kids do their best, but man this just starts out bad and then it only gets worse. Although, this might still be better than the worst “Final Countdown” cover.

“Blessed to Be a Witness” by Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals

September 17, 2008

Live at the Hollywood Bowl, 2003, one of my favorite bands, fo’ sho.  Ben Harper mixes it up from album to album, even song to song.  Folk/Rock/Reggae.  Leon Mobley, the percussionist featured here, is a bad mutha….

Karma’s a Canadien-Noel Gallagher of Oasis Knocked Off His Feet at Toronto Concert

September 9, 2008

Liam Gallagher gets jacked from behind by a fan during the band’s performance at Toronto’s Virgin Music Festival. I’m not a fan of the Gallagher brothers and they’re big mouths, but this was out of line. This could’ve turned out much worse.

“The Final Countdown”-possibly the worst cover you might ever hear.

August 29, 2008

We posted a band from Norway’s rockabilly cover of Europe’s The Final Countdown earlier this month. Now, we present possibly the worst cover, of a bad song to begin with, ever. No idea of who this band is or where they’re playing. You must watch all of it. It’s hypnotically bad. The famous synthesizer part sounds like it’s played on a Fisher Price “My First Keyboard.” Seriously, watch the whole thing. You’ll thank me.

“Heavy Metal in Baghdad”

August 14, 2008

Looks interesting….

Official Website

Heavy Metal in Baghdad is a documentary feature film that follows the Iraqi heavy metal band Acrassicauda from the fall of Saddam Hussein to their escape from Iraq. The band members were bred on American heavy metal albums, learning to speak English by listening to Slayer, Metallica and Slipknot. Playing heavy metal in a Muslim country has always been a difficult, if not impossible preposition, but, after Saddam’s regime was toppled, there was a brief moment for the band in which real freedom seemed possible. That hope was quickly dashed as their country fell into a bloody insurgency.

Directors Eddy Moretti and Suroosh Alvi traveled to Baghdad to find Acrassicauda, Iraq’s most famous heavy metal band. From 2003-2006, Iraq disintegrated around Acrassicauda while they struggled to stay together and stay alive always refusing to let their heavy metal dreams die.
