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.
THE BEST Leo Moracchioli
(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.
(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.
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.
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.
Elton John’s 1983 hit I’m Still Standing has become a bit of an informal anthem in these days of self-isolation. As he’s been known to do, musician Leo Moracchioli made the catchy pop tune all his own, with an ample dose of axe shredding, head banging, and shout singing.
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.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, we can officially play Christmas music without feeling too guilty about it. If you’re tired of traditional carols, then sit back and rock out to Leo Moracchioli’s very special edition of Jimmy Boyd’s jolly little ditty I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.
(PG-13: Language) Who doesn’t love the Lizzo track Truth Hurts? Well, resident metalhead Leo Moracchioli certainly enjoys it, and shows how the song lends itself surprisingly well to a hard rock arrangement. It certainly had us banging our heads and throwing devil horns here in the office.
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.
Despite one reader who didn’t bother providing a real email address so we could respond to his complaint, we’re not sick of Leo Moracchioli’s cover songs yet. Listen up kids, and head to Bikini Bottom with this fun metal edition of the theme song from SpongeBob SquarePants.
There was very little about Falco’s 1985 hit Rock Me Amadeus that was actually rock music, so Leo Moracchioli has cured the song of its electro-pop leanings and turned it into a proper headbanger, delivering on the promise of the original’s harsh-sounding German lyrics.
