We’re not sure why, but the Smash Mouth song All Star seems to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance. Here, we get James Nielssen’s interpretation of the pop hit played entirely with system sounds from Windows XP, and Clippy on lead vocals.
Check Out Awesome Music - Page 9 Of 123 On The Awesomer
An awesome bit of classic footage from the 1985 Grammy Awards ceremony in which Herbie Hancock, Thomas Dolby, Howard Jones and Stevie Wonder do battle on a stage packed with their favorite electronic keyboards. Oh, and on the same night, this happened. Damn.
While his singing certainly isn’t on Geddy Lee’s level, musician Dominic Fragman more than makes up for it with his ability to perform Tom Sawyer’s drums, lead guitar, and vocals all at the same time. Be sure to check out his Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin too. (Thanks Ryan!)
Common and The Roots’ Tariq Trotter prove why they’re professional rappers, and you’re not, as they’re challenged to take three totally random words and work them into a freestyle. “Girl reaching their climax, I’m larger than life, I’m like the IMAX.” Black Thought, you win.
A visually striking music video created by director Filip Sterckx and director of photography Filip Sterckx, in which the only source of light is a light bulb being swung about on a cord. By layering multiple frames in After Effects, they achieved a spellbinding result.
It’s a couple of years old, but that doesn’t make FamilyJules‘ hard rock medley of classic video game music any less awesome. Whenever we hear video game music played with this much energy and speed, we think our character is about to run out of health. Grab the MP3 here.
An earthshaking taiko drum performance by Senzoku Gakuen College of Music’s percussion ensemble that’s equal parts drumming talent, and choreography. The track is called Fertility of the Sea, composed by Eitetsu Hayashi. We can only imagine the sound with a good subwoofer.
YouTube channel Sync Fu was designed with a single purpose – to combine kung fu and action scenes with wildly out of place music. We’re not sure why it works, but it often does. Ouf favorite is Casshern vs. Mr. Roboto, but Lone Wolf and Cub vs. In The Air Tonight is perfect too.
“Peanut butter jelly, or portobello. Open up your mouth… and say hello!” A silly song about one of our favorite kinds of food. Parry Gripp extolls the many wonders of fresh ingredients placed between layers of bread with this catchy little tune. It’s definitely not gluten-free.
Jamiroquai’s first full album since 2010 kicks off with a bang, with an earworm of a dance track that melds funk, EDM, disco, and a dash of vocoder. We’re digging the light-up headgear in director Charlie Lightening’s video that will surely find its way onto the cosplay scene.
