Black Holes and Revelations is one of our favorite Muse albums. EatMyUke is a fan too, and put together this great medley from the album, including Starlight, Supermassive Black Hole, and Knights of Cydonia, which sounds particularly great on the ukulele.
Resident metalhead Leo Moracchioli pays tribute to the The Prodigy lead singer Keith Flint in the best way possible, with a perfectly amped-up cover version of their 1997 hit track Firestarter, loaded with intense vocals and powerful guitar riffs. Rest in peace, Keith.
From Metallica’s Fuel played at a gas station, to RHCP’s Under the Bridge performed under a bridge, musician Danilo Vicari’s compilation video provides some overly literal context to familiar bass and guitar riffs. We were hoping he would play Def Leppard’s Rocket.
Violinist Rob Landes looks back the history of film scores, performing 60 themes from 1938’s Snow White, all they way up through 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, while dressed up in a series of silly costumes. It’s interesting how the newer themes aren’t nearly as memorable.
PAB_Music pulls off a impressively accurate cover version of Radiohead’s 1997 classic, performing each of its instrumental and vocal parts, then layering them together. He previously worked his magic on Under Pressure and Where the Streets Have No Name.
Cybertronic Spree is a Transformers-themed tribute band, who plays a variety of cartoon, videogame, and anime theme songs dressed in awesome costumes. During a recent show, they also performed a truly entertaining cover of Led Zeppelin’s wailing Immigrant Song.
Guitarist Luca Stricagnoli is back to wow us with yet another incredible fingerstyle performance, this time, taking on the incredibly dynamic Muse track Supermassive Black Hole, and extracting way more sound out of single guitar than should be physically possible.
We’re off to Never-never Land with singer Anthony Vincent as he turns Metallica’s Enter Sandman into a totally different song by performing it in the a variety of unlikely styles ranging from The Doors to Haddaway to Owl City. The David Bowie version is our favorite.
If you ask us, Jonathan Coulton’s Still Alive is one of the greatest video game songs of all time. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy this vibrant and jazzy version of the track, performed by The 8-Bit Big Band, with singer Benny Benack III doing his best Frank Sinatra.
Funkmasters Scary Pockets take The Police track Every Breath You Take and give it a fresh coat of paint with this wonderful rendition of the 1983 hit, led off by the soulful vocals of Sarah Dugas, and paying tribute to the syncopated reggae beats of the original.
The idea of an AC/DC tune being played on flute seems like an unnatural fit, but in the able hands and lips of musician Miquelmar, it works perfectly – with the help of a loop box to amp up his rhythm section. His Bohemian Rhapsody cover is worth a listen too.
Cy Ho is a master of the harmonica. Among the tracks you’ll find on his YouTube channel is this live cover version of Lalo Shifrin’s classic theme song from Mission Impossible. Be sure to check out his performances of Billie Jean and Flight of the Bumblebee too.
