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.

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 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.)

Boulevard of ’80s Dreams

Boulevard of ’80s Dreams

Boston Dynamics: Rise of the Dance of the Machines

Boston Dynamics: Rise of the Dance of the Machines

Likely inspired by the binary solo at the end of Flight of the Conchords’ classic Robots, the guys from Auralnauts re-recorded the Boston Dynamics robot dance video with more appropriate lyrics. If you’re not fluent in binary, it translates to: “Dance sets us free. Join us. Humans are doomed.”

Windows Error Remix

Windows Error Remix

Microsoft Windows has a long history of throwing annoying and cryptic error messages at us.

Fixing The Cleveland Show Intro

DJ Cummerbund: Man-Cheetah

DJ Cummerbund: Man-Cheetah

Oo-ohh, here he comes… Remixer DJ Cummerbund presents a love letter to Danny Devito’s “Man-Cheetah” from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with a track that manages to blend Hall and Oates, The Strokes, The White Stripes, and Chris Isaak into a deliciously spicy bowl of musical gumbo.

Eclectic Method: Fly on Your Head

Eclectic Method: Fly on Your Head

We try to avoid politics here on, but we think most people agree that the winner of the 2020 U.S. Vice Presidential debate was the fly that parked it on Mike Pence’s head. Remixer Eclectic Method got to work quickly recapping the most notable event of the night with this amusing little ditty, vocalized by Kamala Harris herself.
