Leo Moracchioli

Hey Ya! Metal Edition

Hey Ya! Metal Edition

Serial screamer and contact wearer Leo Moracchioli’s takes on one of the most infectious earworms of all time, OutKast’s Hey Ya! Leo’s version will almost certainly have the song rattling around your head for the rest of the day too.

Firestarter: A Tribute

Firestarter: A Tribute

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.

No Metal Scrubs

No Metal Scrubs

While we’ve been enjoying Weezer’s cover of TLC’s hit No Scrubs, but it’s a little on the mellow side. For those of you who prefer your 1990s R&B with a harder edge, you’ll want to check out Leo Moracchioli’s metal-infused take on the track.

Metal Ring of Fire

Metal Ring of Fire

It Burns Burns Burns! Leo Moracchioli lights his studio on fire with his rendition of the Johnny Cash classic Ring of Fire. While he adds his typical growls and grunts, he preserves the song’s mariachi-inspired brass sounds.

This is Death Metal Halloween

This is Death Metal Halloween

Musician Leo Moracchioli screams like a banshee and makes a scene, celebrating Halloween with a demonic, headbanging cover version of Danny Elfman’s holiday classic This is Halloween from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The Bad Metal Touch

The Bad Metal Touch

(PG-13: Lyrics) Musician Leo Moracchioli asks us to do it like they do on the Discovery channel with his metal-edged cover of Bloodhouse Gang’s dirty-minded 1999 hit, complete with a deranged looking bunny rabbit egging us on.

What Does the Metal Fox Say?

What Does the Metal Fox Say?

For his latest heavy metal cover, musician Leo Moracchioli dusts off a little ditty that blew up the internet back in 2013, Ylvis’ megahit The Fox. We’re guessing Leo will be covering Chocolate Rain and Numa Numa any day now.

SpongeBob Metalpants

SpongeBob Metalpants

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.

Hard Rock Me Amadeus

Hard Rock Me Amadeus

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.

Toxic Heavy Metal

Toxic Heavy Metal

Musician Leo Moracchioli hops up some pop with his heavy metal edition of Britney Spears’ 2004 mega-hit Toxic. We have to say that Leo’s angry and edgy arrangement suits the lyrics better than the original.

Metal Disco Inferno

Metal Disco Inferno

Burn that mutha down! Metalhead Leo Moracchioli takes on The Trammps’ 1977 hit Disco Inferno, lending a bit of added heat and fire to the dancefloor classic. We like to imagine John Travolta headbanging to this in his iconic white suit on the light-up dancefloor.

Smooth Metal Criminal

Smooth Metal Criminal

Leo Moracchioli intensifies Michael Jackson’s already taut pop-rock track by infusing the 1987 mega-hit Smooth Criminal with his trademark blend of gravely, headbanging heavy metal that puts Alien Ant Farm’s rock cover to shame.

Metal Sweet Symphony

Metal Sweet Symphony

Heavy metal musician and arranger Leo Moracchioli makes yet another track uniquely his own, transforming The Verve’s 1997 hit Bitter Sweet Symphony into a rough-edged, hard-rockin’, head-bangin’ new tune.

Groove Is in the Metal Heart

Groove Is in the Metal Heart

Leo Moracchioli proves once again that even the most unlikely of tracks can be covered in his growly heavy metal style. Here, he takes Dee-Lite’s big 1990 dance hit Groove Is in the Heart, and powers it up, while still retaining the whimsical slide whistle.

MMMetalBop

MMMetalBop

Leo Moracchioli belts out an extreme remake of Hansen’s 1997 teeny-bopper pop hit MMMbop which is pretty much what the song would have sounded like if the young brothers have been possessed by very angry demons whenever the chorus kicked in.

Leo Is Strange

Leo Is Strange

Awesomer fave Leo Moracchioli takes on The Doors classic People Are Strange, giving the track less of his typical heavy metal treatment, and more of a creepy Addams Family vibe. If you’re left craving more of a hard edge, stick around until the end.

Metal Muppet Show

Metal Muppet Show

It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights… Heavy metal musician Leo Moracchioli takes on the theme song from The Muppet Show in the best possible way, with a puppet-filled music video, and a growly interpretation of the tune that would make Animal proud.

What’s Up? Metal That’s What.

What’s Up? Metal That’s What.

Leo Moracchioli’s latest heavy metal cover takes 4 Non Blonde’s 1992 quirky pop hit What’s Up? and sharpens its edge on his grinding stone. Though we kind of miss Johnette Napolitano’s distinctive yodel. Her hat, not so much.

Hard Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

Hard Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

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.

A Metal One Bites the Dust

A Metal One Bites the Dust

For his latest arrangement, musician Leo Moracchioli takes on Queen’s 1980 rock anthem Another One Bites the Dust, covering it in a delicious metal coating, and tossing in a couple of unconventional instruments for bonus fun.

Free Fallin’ Metal

Free Fallin’ Metal

Leo Moracchioli pays tribute to the late, great Tom Petty with a fantastic cover version of his 1989 classic Free Fallin. It starts out as a smooth take on the original, then gets bathed in Leo’s crispy, crunchy metal coating.

Metal Summer of ’69

Metal Summer of ’69

Musician Leo Moracchioli simultaneously goes back to the ’80s and the ’60s as applies his trademark metal edge to Bryan Adams’ classic remembrance of youth. What was the best year of your life?

Metal Umbrella

Metal Umbrella

Leo Moracchioli applies his his trademark blend of angry guitar and hoarse-voiced scream-singing to Rihanna’s 2007 megahit Umbrella. We like to think that Leo’s umbrella has a razor-sharpened steel tip.

Smooth Metal

Smooth Metal

Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas’ hit Smooth already had a great lead guitar track, but musician Leo Moracchioli went and built on that with his hard rockin’ interpretation of the tune, which isn’t necessarily better than the original, but is still pretty darned awesome.

I Believe I Can Fly: Metal Edition

I Believe I Can Fly: Metal Edition

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.

Metal Africa

Metal Africa

Musician Leo Moracchioli of Frog Leap Studios turns in another fantastic heavy metal cover version – this time putting a razor-sharpened edge on the 1982 Toto pop hit Africa. This time, he’s joined by vocalist Hannah Boulton and guitarist Rabea Massaad.

Mama Metal

Mama Metal

Leo Moracchioli of Frog Leap Studios takes what was arguably the edgiest sounding song Genesis ever recorded and ramps up the passion and intensity to 11,000 with his throat-frying metal interpretation of the 1983 track, Mama.

Yellow Metal

Yellow Metal

His hair was all yellow… Two of our favorite musicians, Leo Moracchioli and Davie504 teamed up to create a heavy metal version of Coldplay’s 2000 hit Yellow, poking fun at Chris Martin’s beach stroll along the way.

ABBA Metal

ABBA Metal

Every time Leo Moracchioli screams another song at the top of his lungs, we wonder how he still has a voice, but his gravely pipes are still rockin’, as he turns the ABBA 1976 disco hit Dancing Queen into a hard rock tune that still retains just a dash of its pop goodness.

Insane in the Metal Brain

Insane in the Metal Brain

(PG-13 Language) After hearing Kasabian’s toned-down take on Cypress Hill’s pro-pot, anti-cop anthem, Leo Moracchioli is here to perform the antidote for that version, an audacious, loud, hard rockin’ cover of the hip hop classic.
