Punk Rock Factory has a knack for giving pop songs new life as pop-punk versions. Here, they take the 1997 Hanson mega-hit MMMBop and give the jibberish song an edge it previously lacked. From the album The Wurst Is Yet to Come, which packs 10 great covers.
We already know that Britney Spears’ songs have an underlying dark side to them. In this clip from musician Jack Baca, he transforms the pop star’s 1998 track (Hit Me) Baby One More Time into a depressing ballad about unrequited love.
Norwegian band a-Ha performs a dialed-down and emotional acoustic version of their 1985 pop hit Take on Me, giving the song a new and deeper meaning than ever before. From the upcoming album and video MTV Unplugged Summer Solstice.
Eighteen year old frontman Pablo Muñoz and the rest of Boy Pablo stupidly look into the sun in their silly music video for Everytime. The Norway-based band’s dream pop is as näive, chill, and effortless as their demeanor here.
Gesu no Kiwami Otome (ゲスの極み乙女。, Girl at the Height of Rudeness) is a prog-pop band formed from sharply-dressed friends from other successful Japanese bands. The drummer’s alias is Hona Ikoka. We hope she notices us.
The Collective Cadenza is working on a series of videos that are conceived of, rehearsed, and performed in less than one hour with songs currently hot in pop culture. We especially enjoy the festive horn section and Pharrell substitute.
If you’re like us, you’re still trying to unsee that Superbowl halftime show, but we’ve got a feeling if you watch The Cleverlys doing this bluegrass cover it might make you feel better. (Thanks Chris!)
