Awesome Remixes

Los Disturbados: Stuparena

Los Disturbados: Stuparena

Just when we finally purged Los Del Río’s mind-numbing hit Macarena from the furthest recesses of our brains, remixer Bill McClintock had to go and put it right back in. Only this time, it’s been combined with the Disturbed track Stupify. Yep, this is definitely another disturbing creation.

Judas James: Super Rock Hard

Judas James: Super Rock Hard

Hit play, rock hard, and ride free, super freaks. Rick James and Judas Priest team up for the latest of Bill McClintock’s unlikely musical mashups. Steve Perry and Journey pop in for a little vocal showmanship along the way.

We Will Rock You: Dixieland Edition

We Will Rock You: Dixieland Edition

Dustin over at There I Ruined It absolutely annihilates another classic song by turning it into the worst version of itself. His terrible Dixieland jazz version of Queen’s We Will Rock You will certainly have Freddie Mercury turning over in his grave.

Down with the Doo-Wop

Down with the Doo-Wop

There I Ruined It continues to live up to their name with another cursed reimagining of a popular song. This time, they took the Disturbed track Down with the Sickness and made it sound like a bubbly 1950s Doo-Wop tune. Love it or hate it, consider supporting their fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Shut Up and Take My Painting

Shut Up and Take My Painting

As we’ve learned before, everything is a remix. In this particular case, digital artist Hayati Evren remixed pieces of classical works and transformed them into a popular meme. The finished image will be part of the Evren’s “Clash of Time” NFT collection on OpenSea.

Alugalug Cat Ultimate Edition

Alugalug Cat Ultimate Edition

After The Kiffness remixed the gurgly sounding Alugalug Cat and subsequently upgraded it with an international symphony, the track continued to make the round on social media. It eventually landed in the hands of MiMo, who stitched together Kiff’s beat with a bunch of other musicians from TikTok and enhanced it with a funky mix of jazz and rap.

Haka Metal

Haka Metal

Andre Antunes improves another viral video by adding a heavy metal soundtrack to it. This time, he amped up the already formidable footage of New Zealand’s All Blacks rugby team performing a traditional Maori war dance known as the Haka. Original video here.

DJ Cummerbund: Sweet Lord House

DJ Cummerbund: Sweet Lord House

Back in the day, The Beatles rarely licensed their music for use in television or movies. But if George Harrison had lent his music to a TV series, it might have sounded something like DJ Cummerbund’s reimagining of My Sweet Lord as the theme song from Full House.

Everything Is a Remix (2021): Part 2

The Kiffness x Throat Singing

The Kiffness x Throat Singing

The latest remix from The Kiffness takes an Altai throat singing video by Bai Terek and gives it a funky new beat. The words of the original track are a blessing of goodwill to their native Siberian land, and we consider videos like this a blessing to the Internet.

Minor Key Jump

Minor Key Jump

The Van Halen track Jump sounds so wrong it’s right when you lower the music’s 3rd and 6th intervals by a half-step. YouTube finally let Andy Rehfeldt post his minor-key revamp of the track after three years of trying. If you like what you hear, buy Andy a cup of coffee.

Everything Is a Remix (2021): Part 1

Everything Is a Remix (2021): Part 1

Maiden Goes to Hollywood

Maiden Goes to Hollywood

Wax Audio blended together the sounds of two very different bands with seemingly little in common. But both Iron Maiden and Frankie Goes to Hollywood share more than just British roots and 1984 hit albums – they both created music inspired by the works of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

The Kiffness X Thai Pile Drivers

The Kiffness X Thai Pile Drivers

The Kiffness remixed another internet video, this time starting with a clip of workers in Thailand doing manual pile driving while singing a song. Kiff’s take on the track adds just the right amount of drum, bass, and tamborine, along with appropriate lyrics. Gotta get that pole in the ground!

Super Mario Core Mega Mix

Super Mario Core Mega Mix

Boom boom, akalaka laka boom! Remix master DJ Cummerbund goes prehistoric with this mashup, combining music from Mötley Crüe, Was (Not Was), The Gap Band, Pantera, and Soundgarden. Featuring bonus cameos by Jeff Goldblum, Mario and Luigi, Bob-Omb, the cast of Dinosaurs, and of course Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

Hip to Be the Sandman

Hip to Be the Sandman

Remixer Bill McClintock’s latest madcap mashup combines the music from the Huey Lewis and the News pop hit Hip to Be Square with James Hetfield’s vocals from Metallica’s Enter Sandman. The unholy offspring of the two songs is either the worst idea ever or pure genius.

One Pound Fish Man x The Kiffness

One Pound Fish Man x The Kiffness

After blowing up the internet with his musical version of Alugalug Cat, musician The Kiffness is back with another gem. This time, he created a live-looped beat to go with 2012 classic The One Pound Fish Man. Come on ladies. Have a, have a look.

Alugalug Cat: International Symphonic Edition

Alugalug Cat: International Symphonic Edition

A little while back, The Kiffness added music to that weird-sounding Alugalug Cat. When the video went viral, musicians around the world submitted their accompaniments to the tune, adding an unexpected amount of depth to what started out as a kitty sounding like he was about to cough up a hairball.

Sneeze Cat x The Kiffness

Sneeze Cat x The Kiffness

The Kiffness seems to have found a new niche – turning videos of unusual cat behavior into music. After amusing us with his Alugalug Cat remix, he’s back with a remake of The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights accompanied by Sneeze Cat. Seriously, would somebody get this kitty a Zyrtec?

Alugalug Cat x The Kiffness

Alugalug Cat x The Kiffness

Musician The Kiffness took footage of a strange-sounding kitty known as the “Alugalug Cat” and turned it into a smooth and mellow groove, adding just the right mix of electronic beats and velvety vocals to the cat’s melodic meows.

Slamilton

I am not throwing away my 3-point shot! Remix artist Psynwav envisions what it might be like if Hamilton and Space Jam teamed up for a crossover musical about Michael Jordan’s rise to greatness on the basketball court. It seems like a looney idea, but it works brilliantly.

Smells Like Reggae Spirit

Smells Like Reggae Spirit

What might Nirvana have sounded like if they hailed from Kingston, Jamaica instead of Seattle, Washington? Music remixer Andy Rehfeldt has the answer. So sit back, light up a spliff, dim the lights, and enjoy some Rastafarian grunge.

Rap God But the Instrumental Keeps Changing

Rap God But the Instrumental Keeps Changing

(PG-13: Language) Remixer William Maranci has a new trick up his sleeve – taking existing songs and swapping out the instrumentals over and over again. Here, he takes Eminem’s Rap God and backs it with 55 different tracks, from Nirvana’s In Bloom to They Might Me Giants’ Ana Ng to the theme from Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Hey Ya!: Synthwave Remix

Hey Ya!: Synthwave Remix

Musician Astrophysics takes songs from various genres, and slathers them with a thick layer of 1980s electronic sounds, then complements them with appropriately retro graphics. There’s lots of great stuff to enjoy on their YouTube channel, but this synthwave remix of Outkast’s 2003 hit Hey Ya! is our favorite (so far.)
