The Melodicka Bros. progressive rock cover of Green Day’s American Idiot brilliantly captures the improvised and meandering style of the genre. The only way they could make it better is if they added an 8-minute guitar solo and a laser light show.
Awesome Melodicka Bros
The Melodicka Bros. took The Animals’ classic House of the Rising Sun and transformed it into a dark and moody song that’s so emotive that it almost certainly will turn up on a soundtrack to set the stage for an intense movie or TV scene. The music video’s direction works perfectly with the gloomy track.
The Village People’s 1978 hit Y.M.C.A. has long outlived its disco origins, morphing into a crowd favorite at sporting events and parties, as people make letters with their arms. While the original was happy and upbeat, Melodicka Bros.’ cover version is anything but, transforming the track into a sad and introspective ballad.
