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.
Awesome There I Ruined It
North Korea isn’t known for its sense of humor. But with a little nudge from There I Ruined It, The Central Military Band of the Korean People’s Army is forced into performing the Monty Python song Always Look on the Bright Side of Life from The Meaning of Life. Now try this with Every Sperm Is Sacred.
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.
There I Ruined It lives up to their name again by transforming Radiohead’s 1992 hit Creep into something you might hear coming out of one of Nashville’s Broadway honky tonks at three in the morning. The only thing missing is a cowboy hat atop Thom Yorke’s mop of blonde hair.
There I Ruined It wants to Un-Ruin a Christmas by donating the proceeds from their holiday fundraiser to Toys for Tots. All you have to do is listen to their new and improved version of Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas as performed by Dee Snider, then open up your wallet and give.
Because truly nothing is sacred to the warped minds behind There I Ruined It, here’s a version of Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust, mashed up with The Champs’ 1958 hit track Tequila, also known as Pee-Wee Herman’s favorite dance song. Clearly, much tequila was consumed when they came up with this idea.
There I Ruined It have outdone themselves, turning Eminem’s Without Me into a twangy bluegrass song that sounds like it could have been the theme to The Beverly Hillbillies or Hee-Haw. We suppose that’s what you get when you start your song with square dance instructions, Marshall.
There I Ruined It manages to destroy two songs at the same time, turning John Denver’s (and later Peter, Paul, and Mary’s) folk classic Leaving on a Jet Plane into Nirvana’s Heart-Shaped Box. Or is it the other way around? Honestly, you can ruin any song in seconds just by adding a slide whistle.
There I Ruined It reimagines another song as the worst version of itself. This time, they converted The Rolling Stones’ classic Satisfaction into a Scott Joplin-esque ragtime ditty that absolutely nobody asked for. Though we actually enjoyed it more than Cat Power’s version.
There I Ruined It wishes us a happy holiday season with a Christmas version of Billy Idol’s 1985 hit track Dancing with Myself sprinkled with a cheerful dash of Jingle Bells. It’s perfect in every way, except we would have called it “Dancing with My Elf.”
