(PG-13: Language) Run the Jewels’ Killer Mike managed to score a one-on-one interview with legendary funk musician and producer George Clinton, and hung out in one of his barbershops to chew the fat about hip-hop, doo-wop, haircuts, counterfeit cash, and more.

If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 yet, get yourself to a theatre now. It’s awesome. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy this 3-minute medley of a few of the classic ’70s tunes from the soundtrack, performed by The Warp Zone and Chad Neidt.
Rather than using sound bites from another movie or TV show, this Eclectic Method track is made primarily from weaponfire and reloading sounds from first-person shooters. As long as it doesn’t include the incessant microphone chatter of 10-year-olds, we’re good.
Fender’s new digital amplifiers have thousands of presets and effects that you can operate through a built-in display, and you’ll get even more thanks to their Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. The Mustang GT amps also have a speaker function and USB and XLR outputs.
Chris Stapleton, Kevin Bacon, and Jimmy Fallon donned their best long beards and furry guitars to turn in a cover of the ZZ Top hit Legs, but with the “original” lyrics that didn’t make it into the final cut. We’re guessing the song’s working title was Anatomy Lesson.
We’re going to go out on a limb and say that a musician with the bold theatricality of Puddles the Clown owes a great debt to David Bowie, so it’s only fitting that he should take one of The Thin White Duke’s greatest tunes, and knock it out of the park.
We’ve had no luck finding out the name of this Korean musician that Mo Elnadi recorded while performing on the street in London, but we were duly impressed by his minimal cover of Coldplay’s Fix You on his MicroKorgXL synth. His cover of Oasis’ Stand by Me ain’t bad either.
A remastered version of the Radiohead classic OK Computer. It will also come with three unreleased tracks and eight B-sides. The boxed edition comes with a hardcover artbook, a notebook with copies of Thom Yorke’s notes from the time of recording, and more.
Scandroid performs an awesome synthwave arrangement of John Williams’ classic Force Theme from the Star Wars saga. While it might not suit the timeless feel of the films, it certainly captures the essence of the era during which they achieved their greatest fame – the 1980s.
(Gross) It’s an age old story of a girl falling in love with her one true soulmate – except in this case, her significant other just happens to be creepy alien creature. Oh Yeah Wow’s video for Millington’s jangly love song starts out silly, and ends like a horror film.
Pallette-Swap Ninja is celebrating the upcoming May the Fourth holiday in the best possible way, by releasing a free album comprised entirely of Star Wars parody songs, all done to the tune of songs from the Beatles’ famed record Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Impressionist Mikey Bolts takes on the 1999 Blackalicious classic Alphabet Aerobics, matching each letter of the alphabet to a cartoon character, and raps each part in their voice. We swear, the more we look at Mikey, the more we think he’s actually Peter Brady.
It’s been floating around the YouTube ether for an eternity, but Alejandro Sayago’s 2011 performance of DragonForce’s speedmetal hit Through the Fire and Flames is too good to pass up. We can’t decide if his fingers, lips, or lungs were most likely to fall off by the end.
EatMyUke is currently on a quest to learn how to play his 50 favorite albums of all time on the ukulele. Given how well he performed The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Californication, we think he’ll have no problem achieving his goal. That’s Matt Deakin chipping in on the drums.
