Shia LaBeouf Goes Metal

Shia LaBeouf Goes Metal

Musician Andre Antunes dusted off actor Shia LaBeouf’s impassioned green-screen motivational speech and added the angry heavy metal soundtrack it’s deserved since day one. Hit play now. Just Do It! STOP GIVING UP!!!

Rammstein Fingerstyle

Rammstein Fingerstyle

Ein. Zwei. Drei. Vier… Hier kommt die Sonne. Guitarist Alexandr Misko gives the Rammstein song Sonne a totally new, yet awesome sound. He still manages to capture the aggressive energy of the original but still makes it all his own.

Can’t Get You Out of My Metal Head

Can’t Get You Out of My Metal Head

Kylie Minogue’s 2001 pop hit Can’t Get You Out of My Head is one of those songs you just can’t get out of your head. Leo Moracchioli’s heavy metal spin on the track is just as much of an earworm, though it might make them bleed more.

Heavy Metal Hog Calling

Heavy Metal Hog Calling

Soooooooo-weee! Bang your head! Andre Antunes is back with another hilarious heavy metal video edit, this time adding an appropriate musical flourish to a hog-calling competition. Seriously, they should have an electric guitar player on stage at every state fair from now on.

Agatha All Along: Metal Edition

Agatha All Along: Metal Edition

The big reveal about Agatha in WandaVision played out in musical form, thanks to an earworm of a track by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Rocker Leo Moracchioli applies his trademark style to the song with another fun heavy metal cover. His outro is almost as good as the song itself, so stick around to the end.

Metal Rogers’ Neighborhood

Metal Rogers’ Neighborhood

Musician Clint Robinson puts on his best red cardigan and comfiest sneakers to rock out a death metal version of Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, the theme song from the classic kid’s program Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. We’re pretty sure Clint has scared all the children off of his block.

Iron Maiden on Piano

Iron Maiden on Piano

Gamazda once again proves what an amazing musician she is, with a stellar cover version of Iron Maiden’s 1983 hit The Trooper. We’re impressed with how well the heavy metal track’s angry guitar riffs translate to her high-speed piano playing.

All Star (Metal Edition)

All Star (Metal Edition)

We present for your entertainment the one-billionth cover version of Smash Mouth’s megahit All Star, but somehow Leo Moracchioli managed to give it a totally new sound by making the track as metal as possible. Also, how does he sing with that full-face mask on?

Intergalactic Metal

Intergalactic Metal

Resident metalhead Leo Moracchioli takes us to another dimension and a new galaxy with his angry, gravel-voiced version of the Beastie Boys’ 1998 track Intergalactic. While nobody can possibly top Ad-Rock, Mike D, and MCA, Leo’s take on the track is certainly entertaining.

Why Are You Closed? Metal Edition

Why Are You Closed? Metal Edition

More than a decade ago, a video went viral featuring a rather hostile man who was really perturbed that the doors to a Toronto shopping mall were locked. Now, Andre Antunes has dusted off this Internet gem and given it the heavy metal soundtrack that it always deserved.

Metal Tragedy

Metal Tragedy

(PG-13: Language) When the feeling’s gone and you can’t go on, it’s tragedy. Resident metalhead Leo Moracchioli presents an angry version of the Bee Gees’ 1979 disco hit Tragedy, a song which seems to be exceptionally relevant during these frustrating days when we can’t always be with our loved ones.

Ozzy Osbourne Symphonic Medley

Ozzy Osbourne Symphonic Medley

Rock out with an orchestral medley of Ozzy Osbourne music as performed by Epic Symphonic Rock. It’s quite a novelty to hear tracks like Perry Mason, Crazy Train, Bark at the Moon, and No More Tears played on the violin, cello, oboe, marimba, and other symphonic instruments.

Deck the Halls with Ozzy Osbourne

Deck the Halls with Ozzy Osbourne

Musician Aaron Gage likes a little sprinkle of heavy metal atop his holiday egg nog. To celebrate the season rock and roll style, he performed the Black Sabbath classic War Pigs, but swapped in the lyrics the Christmas classic Deck the Halls.

Heavy Metal History of Video Game Music

Heavy Metal History of Video Game Music

Guitarist FamilyJules revisits his epic metal medley of classic video game music, tossing in a few new games along the way, and bringing the end of the collection up to date. Yep. It still sounds to us like every character is about to run out of oxygen and lose a life.

Solar Eclipse Music Video

Solar Eclipse Music Video

Back in 2015, Faroe Islands doom metal band Hamferð performed a moody, acoustic version of their track Deyðir varðar while a solar eclipse played out behind their backs. They timed the live performance perfectly and managed to resist the urge to turn around as day turned to night and back. (Thanks Kartin!)

WAP: Metal Edition

WAP: Metal Edition

(PG-13: Language) Get a bucket and a mop out for resident metalhead Leo Moracchioli as he transforms Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s unambiguously smutty pop track WAP into a heavy metal song and replaces the shameless images of well-endowed women with a cute little kitty taking a shower.

Metal Fest Blankets and More

Rock out with all your favorite metal bands every time you take a nap.

Metal Supergroup Covers RUSH

Metal Supergroup Covers RUSH

Two Minutes to Late Night’s Mutoid Man managed to gather members of Coheed and Cambria, Mastodon, Primus, and Tool to record a totally badass work from home cover of the 1975 RUSH track Anthem, layered thick with guitar distortion, power bass, and impassioned vocals that would make Geddy Lee proud.

Ace Of Spades on Stylophone

Ace Of Spades on Stylophone

maromaro1337 is a master of the stylophone, having rocked out covers like Black Sabbath’s Paranoid, AC/DC’s Thunderstruck, and Metallica’s Master of Puppets. Here’s another hard rock classic, Motörhead’s Ace of Spades, played energetically on the simple electronic instruments. Don’t forget the Joker!

Metal Peaches

Metal Peaches

Peaches come in a can. They were put there by a man, in a factory downtown. Leo Moracchioli dusts of the 1995 Presidents of the U.S.A. hit Peaches, replacing the twangy alt-pop sounds of the original with angry electric guitar, and energetic screams about nature’s candy and some not-so-thinly-veiled sexual innuendo.

Addicted to Love: Metal Edition

Addicted to Love: Metal Edition

Musician Leo Moracchioli rarely busts out the trumpet for his metal and hard rock cover versions of popular songs, but in the case of Robert Palmer’s 1985 hit Addicted to Love, it was the best way to do the song justice. Though Leo’s video seems to be a little light on long-legged models in slinky black dresses.

Minor-to-Major Metal

Minor-to-Major Metal

What happens when you transpose a bunch of fierce heavy metal songs from a minor key to a major key? The Paranormal Guitar Channel changed up a bunch of hard rock tracks, making them far more lighthearted than their original counterparts.

Megadeth & Electra Come Together

Megadeth & Electra Come Together

Even metal guitar gods are mortal. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is playing it safe by isolating at home with his family during the COVID-19 shutdown, so he and his daughter Electra (a monster singer in her own right) recorded a living room jam on a Beatles classic: “Come together! Right now… QUARANTINE!”

Metal Mad World

Metal Mad World

The Tears for Fears track Mad World has had two very strong showings over the years. Now we have a third variant, with the Melodicka Bros turning in a very solid hard rock arrangement of the song, expressing the song’s lyrics with a bit more anger than sorrow.

Metal’s Dumbest Videos

Metal’s Dumbest Videos

(PG-13: Language) “This isn’t metal. It’s just kids in Hot Topic clothes… yelling at me.” Comedian and heavy metal fan Brian Posehn stopped by Loudwire studios to peddle his comedy metal album Grandpa Metal, which pokes fun at the clichés of metal music. He also took a little time to roast some truly awful music videos.

Carry on Metal Son

Carry on Metal Son

Set a course for winds of fortune. Resident metalhead Leo Moracchioli teamed up with fellow musician Truls Haugen to perform this very well executed cover version of the Kansas prog rock classic, Carry On Wayward Son, donning ridiculous long hair, beards and mustaches to go with the ’70s sounds.
