Metal Down Under

Metal Down Under

Men at Work’s Australian anthem Down Under is one of the most jangly and upbeat pop songs of all time. But in the interest of leaving no musical stone unturned, resident metalhead Leo Moracchioli still managed to turn it into an angry hard rock track.

Lizzo Metal

Lizzo Metal

(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.

99 Lead Balloons

99 Lead Balloons

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
