The Melodicka Bros turn in a sweet cover version of System of a Down’s classic B.Y.O.B., performed entirely on a pair of ukuleles. Just because they’re playing tiny musical instruments doesn’t mean they can’t shred with the best of ’em.
You will get a sentimental feeling… when you hear… Frog Leap singing ‘let’s be jolly, deck the halls with boughs of holly.’ Enjoy a holiday treat from Leo Moracchioli, as he turns in a tough-as-nails rendition of the 1960 Brenda Lee classic Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.
13 year-old Owen Davey is a master of not just one instrument, but can rock lead guitar, bass, and drums with the best of them. Here, he performs all of the parts from Metallica’s classic Master of Puppets like a badass. His cover of YYZ by Rush is solid too.
Leo Moracchioli continues to rock it out of the park with his heavy metal covers – this time taking on R. Kelly’s 1996 hit ballad, turning it into a legitimate alt-rock track which could stand entirely on its own. Show your support for Leo by buying his tracks here.
Musician and all-around madman Andy Rehfeldt is back with another death metal cover. This time, he turns our favorite mild-mannered, cardigan-wearing neighbor into an angry member of the Army of Satan. Though at times, Andy’s death metal voice sounds a whole lot like Cookie Monster.
It’s not in chronological order, nor does it list any tracks, but that just means you’ve got to rise to the challenge to identify all the tracks that inspired GMC Guitar’s epic lead guitar medley. Guitarist Ben Higgins was kind enough to provide tabs if you dare attempt it yourself.
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.
