Believe it or not, Nirvana’s seminal breakthrough album Nevermind
will turn 20 this year, which has clearly not been lost on tattooed Disney minx
Miley Cyrus. The Hannah-Montana-star-gone-rock-chick
performed in Ecuador over the weekend and sonically assaulted her fans with alt-rock classic “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” That’s right, Gen X, Miley covered Nirvana — a fact that, in and of itself, we think Kurt Cobain would somehow find to be utterly punk rock. Watch below!
brings to our attention this awesome medley of Daft Punk tunes, as performed by the Dublin Trinity Orchestra, the only fully student-run orchestra in Ireland. They did this medley as an encore after performing the French duo’s Discovery
album in full. We only wish one of the students was rocking a robot helmet
. Enjoy below! More »
Lil Wayne’s fellow Young Money MC Drake arranged for Weezy to be interviewed by nutty Canadian personality Nardwuar The Human Serviette (or, as Wayne refers to him, “Whatever you just said”). The one-on-one is all at once surreal, hilarious and completely fascinating. We’ll also mention that it’s probably NSFW
— particularly the “6 Foot 7 Foot”
rapper’s response to innocent-enough question, “Lil Wayne, what type of food do you like?” Feast below.
Karaoke competitions, by their very nature, are breeding grounds for disastrous performances. (And, no—we’re not talking about NBC’s The Voice
, which kicks off next week!) Case in point: this dude, who decided to tackle Michael Jackson’s 1991 hit “Black Or White,” but clearly didn’t spend enough time learning the pacing of the song or, you know, the lyrics
. The real hotness begins at the 1:07 mark in the video, when homeboy goes off on the DJ. Eeeee-Heeeeeee!
Beyonce’s new jam “Girls (Who Run The World)”
has been receiving mixed reviews since it debuted earlier this week, but according to Kevin and Makael, anyone who enjoys the singer’s latest offering is wrong, wrong, wrong. The Awl
points us to The Skorpion Show on YouTube, hosted by two over-enthusiastic Beyonce fans who are, to put it extremely mildly, not pleased
with the diva’s latest single. Enjoy Kevin and Makael’s passionate, 7-minute review below. (Trust us, you will
enjoy it.) More »
While you’re forever waiting for a sex tape starring the actual doe-eyed singer to surface (you never know, but we won’t hold our breath), Katy Perry
and many of her pop star pals
(the ones of legal age, anyway) get parodied in a new porn movie. And by the look of the trailer, it’s more funny than sexy — unless, of course, you get aroused by terrible impersonations and bad wigs. SFW trailer below, but it is
a porn parody trailer, after all, so be mindful, will ya? More »
Kurt Cobain died on April 5, 1994 — seventeen years ago yesterday — and his passing still affects many music fans to this day. One such fan happens to be 30 Seconds To Mars’ Jared Leto, who thought of no better way to honor the singer’s legacy than uploading a video of himself dressing up like Cobain while performing some Nirvana songs. Really. More »
Last April Fool’s Day, Funny Or Die let Justin Bieber take over their website
with his pint-sized fury and comedy stylings. This year, the FOD crew has handed over the reigns to music legend Rebecca Black
. The 13-year old pop music impresario, hailed by Lady Gaga
and Simon Cowell
, has peaked at #58 on the Billboard
Hot 100 with her ode to the beginning of the weekend, and is only getting more and more powerful with each passing Friiii-day. Resistance is futile. Bow down to Miss Black and watch her Funny Or Die videos below.
Rebecca Black has been the Internet Meme of the Week, and now that we’ve been able to spend two Friiiidays, Friiiidays with this cheerful 13-year old Lea Michele look-a-like
, we hope her web fame gets put to bed by midnight. So let’s all agree to say goodbye to Rebecca with an acoustic version of “Friday”
, currently #21 on the iTunes singles chart (which is appropriately right below Avril Lavigne’s “What The Hell”).
