Mother!

I was turned onto this bit o' weirdness by Gia's brother in-law earlier this week.

There are these Youtube guys/gals who take old music videos and add in their own music and vocals. Most of them are pretty lame, but some are works of art.

This would be one of them:



For those of you not familiar with the Glenn Danzig, he's a little heavy metal/punk rock singer for bands like Samhain (who were big when I was in High School), The Misfits (big when I was in Middle School) and the eponymous Danzig, natch. And I'm saying little because he is short. He was kinda cool when he was punk with The Misfits (named after Marilyn Monroe's last film), and a little less so when fronting Samhain initially and ultimately Danzig. At least to me. I'm more of a punk fan than a metal fan, and The Misfits were pretty influential.

That really has nothing to do with the above video. It's just fun to hear someone make fun of it because it appears that Danzig took it all very seriously.

Speaking of punk bands, one of my favorite bands back in the day was an experimental bunch from NYC called Alice Donut. Got to see them live at CBGB one evening in 1992/1993 and they were awesome. Gotta love a punk band that incorporates trombones and shit into their music. Thought I would include one of their "videos" to offset the massive sucktitude of Danzig up there.

Happy Friday!




We're in the soup now!

My wife just hollered from the other room, "What on earth is that?"

I ignored her. :)

Glenn Danzig, what a geezer. I bought the Misfits box set a couple of years ago - love that band.

Have you heard the incredible 'Misfits Meets The Nutley Brass'? Go find it, it's Misfits covers as lounge music. It's genius.

I don't think I much like any of that.

badger - I checked out the website. Fun stuff!

Kat - fair enough. Did you really watch that first video? It cracks me up!

Kat said...

I'll give you that. The first one is bad enough to enjoy ;o)

That's fucking hilarious.

Avi - I wish the other 165 videos that these guys did were half as funny as this.

That first video was AWESOME. I'm going to torture people with that all over the place.

Liz - like the Black Metal, it invades one's soul. But in a good way.
