THE BEST Music

Band of Bikers

Band of Bikers

A group of guys in Moscow decide to take a motorcycle ride, and play a little concert while they head down the highway. We’d feel better if they were wearing helmets, though.

Dubstep Live

Dubstep Live

The trademark sounds of dubstep are typically achieved with electronic effects, but Pinn Panelle manages to reproduce the musical stylings of Skrillex with guitars, drum and bass (mostly).

History of Nonsense Lyrics

History of Nonsense Lyrics

26 classic songs, and not a single coherent lyric amongst them – at least not the parts Jane Lui, Michael T. and Jonathan Batiste chose to perform in this medley directed by Joe Sabia.

Daffy Duck: the Wizard

Daffy Duck: the Wizard

Marvel at the powerful spellth and legendary ekthploith of the Wizard. Best Merrie Melodie ever made. The only way this would be better is if the young Ozzy Osbourne sung the song.

Vinyl Portraits

Vinyl Portraits

Alejandro de Antonio made a series of sweet portraits of music icons using vinyl records for the Unconventional Materials project of the Art Room. No word if the pieces are for sale though.

Acoustic Motörhead

Acoustic Motörhead

Beer brand Kronenbourg 1664 somehow managed to convince Motörhead to make a slowed down acoustic version of Ace of Spades. And it’s still bad-ass. Full song here, making of here.

Korg microPIANO

Korg microPIANO

A portable electronic piano made to look like a grand piano. You even have to open the lid to expose its speakers. Has 61 keys, 61 sounds and 25 phrases. Also available with a red lid finish.

Show Me Where Ya Noms At

Show Me Where Ya Noms At

YouTube stars Andrew Huang (Songs to Wear Pants to) and Hanna Hart (My Drunk Kitchen) collab to make a party tune proclaiming their love for food. Watch and listen to their other Nom song here.

Beautiful Machine

Beautiful Machine

The worlds of Gears of War and Half-Life 2 collide in this awesome effects-laden music video for Paul Oakenfold’s track Beautiful Machines. From the Machinima Music Video series. (Thanks, Kat!)

Com Truise: BrokenDate

Com Truise: BrokenDate

Music video for BrokenDate by Seth Haley aka Com Truise, off of his Galactic Melt LP. The video matches the 80s synth music frame for frame, from the Laser Tag guns to the shots and angles.

Insane Office Escape

Insane Office Escape

(NSFW) The adrenaline-filled, first-person view, Mirror’s Edge-esque music video for The Stampede, a single off of Biting Elbows’ Dope Fiend Massacre EP. Directed by Ilya Naishuller.

Resistance: Classical Cover

Resistance: Classical Cover

Musician Jason Yang takes on Muse’s anthem Resistance on piano and electric violin. It gets a little nuts around 3:33, but an epic space-rock solo makes perfect sense in a Muse song.

On Tour Furniture

On Tour Furniture

It may look like a rolling amp and speaker cabinet for a rock band, but the On Tour cabinet from Aureate actually conceals shelves and drawers for storing books, games, movies, and what-not.

Music from a Dry Cleaner

Music from a Dry Cleaner

When we go to the cleaners, we’re too busy making sure they didn’t forget any of our shirts to notice anything else. But when Diego Stocco stops in, all he sees are a bunch of musical instruments.

Channelling Eddie

Channelling Eddie

We were pretty impressed by yesterday’s Freddie Mercury vocalization, but this guy from Santiago, Chile wins the award for the least likely person to pull off a convincing Eddie Vedder.

Channelling Freddie

Channelling Freddie

At first, we thought Marc Martel was lip-syncing, but he does the most uncanny impression of Freddie Mercury’s smooth and powerful vocals. Or maybe he’s just a medium for the dead. More here.

Tony Bennett x Amy Winehouse

Tony Bennett x Amy Winehouse

The video of Winehouse’s final recording – a lovely duet of the 30’s pop song Body and Soul with the legendary Tony Bennett. Reminds us just how talented she was. Amy talks about the single here.

BTTF: A Capella

BTTF: A Capella

Matt Mulholland does his crazy vocal thing on this classic skateboarding chase scene from the original Back to the Future. So what are you waiting for? Make like a tree and play the video already.

Dexter Theme Solo

Dexter Theme Solo

Musician Adam Ben Ezra takes on the theme music from Dexter with style, panache and plenty of tarps in this beautifully shot video by Guy Dayan and Sergey Maydin with sound by Dan Zipori.

Fluteboxing Teen

Fluteboxing Teen

While Annie Wu might not yet be at the level of Nathan “Flutebox” Lee or Greg Patillo, we can say with certainty that we couldn’t beatbox and play the flute at the same time when we were 15 years-old.

Cinemashup: Shine On

Cinemashup: Shine On

(NSFW: Nudity) Jeff Yorkes offers inspired musical pairings with classic moments from the cinema. In this clip we get the perfect juxtaposition of Lennon’s Instant Karma with Kubrick’s The Shining.

My Keepon

My Keepon

Remember Keepon, the little robot who went viral with his dance to Spoon’s I Turn My Camera On? Now you can have your very own Keepon, ready to get his groove on to any tune you throw his way.

Everybody, MikuMikuDance!

Everybody, MikuMikuDance!

A couple of years ago these guys took YouTube by storm with Backstreet Boys’ cheesetacular anthem. We didn’t think it could get better, but leave it to Japanese technology to improve upon the original.

Shutterlog Remix

Shutterlog Remix

Shutterlog is a crowdsourced YouTube channel containing videos of the moment when a camera’s shutter release is pressed. Cameron Lew remixed the sounds into a relentless, attacking beat.

Fender Kurt Cobain Jaguar

Replicas of Cobain’s “battered and highly unusual” left-hander 1965 Jaguar. Has the same 3-color sunburst alder body (with worn-out finish), dual humbucking pickups and triple knob configuration.
