Vocalist Mandy Harvey lost her hearing about 10 years ago, but she didn’t let that stand in the way of her passion. She recently stone the show on American’s Got Talent, earning a golden buzzer to the finals courtesy of Simon Cowell. Has someone been cutting onions in here?

Dave Grohl directed the bipolar music video for Foo Fighters’ latest track – a clip which stars the members of the band rocking a retirement home, aged to look how they’ll look if they keep performing for another 30 years or so. We love the Thriller-esque choreography at the end.
We dug up this little gem that dates back to a Halloween 2009 concert in Philly, in which Pearl Jam turned in a fun cover version of the 1980 Devo hit Whip It. There’s nothing quite like Eddie Vedder in a Devo dome warbling “Step on a crack, break your momma’s back.”
From dive-bombs to double-stops to finger-picking, there are tons of different techniques and flourishes that guitarists can incorporate into their jams. Music is Win did his best to incorporate all of them into a single 3-minute solo performance. You missed a couple, dude.
(Flashing images) “JVC is nice; I’ve been around Japan; It’s electronic, calls me Viktor; High on the scales, off the Richter.” Director Kris Merc’s dope visual feast is the perfect complement to hip hop legends Kool Keith and MF Doom’s track about a rapper with super powers.
“I’m different. I know that I’m different.” An 11-year-old boy wrote a rap about his so-called friend who started bullying him. He was too nervous to perform it himself, so he sent it to Mac Lethal, who obliged. Isaac, it’s time to show Thomas the door. You deserve better, kid.
We’ve been fans of Puddles Pity Party since he first hit the scene. Now, he’s about to break wide after appearing on America’s Got Talent. To kick off his almost certain domination of the competition, he performed a rendition of Sia’s Chandelier, arranged by Postmodern Jukebox.
If you thought the expressions beatboxers make while producing sounds were weird, wait till you get a load of this. Tom Thum allowed a doctor to place an endoscopic camera with a view of his throat while he beatboxed. The video is equal parts fascinating and disgusting.
While we love “Weird Al” Yankovic for his silly novelty songs, he’s got other talents too. Here, he pays a tribute to the late George Harrison with a fantastic performance of What Is Life during George Fest. Randumbify did a great editing together various cellphone vids.
Besides Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, one thing that’s been consistent in Gorillaz’ ever-changing 16+ year run is the use of samples. Kirima Nagi put together this video which catalogs some of the many sound bites which have made their way into the group’s tracks.
