I personally don’t mind Muse as a band but throughout their career they’ve always managed to produce some of the more inventive and entertaining music videos.Their latest for the single Pressure is no exception.
Directed by filmaker Lance Drake it stars the band and legendary actor Terry Crews and is rammed full of pop culture and movie references from the 80s, ranging from the more obvious Back To The Future and Critters to the more obscure like The Exterminator and Fright Night.
It merits a couple of watches to catch them all. Good luck.
Italian singer Andrea Bocelli has released a new song which has pretty much made most of the internet weep.
Bocelli, who was born blind, has joined forces with his 20 year-old talented son, Matteo Bocelli, to sing a moving duet entitled ‘Fall On Me’, which has accumulated almost three million views on YouTube in only five days.
A man who has never been able to see his own son, singing in perfect harmony with him is probably the most emotional thing you’ll experience on the internet this week.
Is there someone cutting onions in this room?
For some time there have been rumours flying around the internet that rock band Foo Fighters were on the verge of breaking up, mainly due to further inaccurate speculation that the band considered lead man Dave Grohl to be ‘too Hollywood’.
So when the band issued a statement that an official announcement would be made online everyone automatically assumed the band was finished.
They couldn’t have been more wrong. The announcement itself was nothing short of hilarious.
This music video from rock outfit Tragedy entitled All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond is a masterful cover version of the iconic John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John track You’re The One That I Want.
The fact that it’s a heavy metal cover is one thing but there’s so much more going on in this track with homage paid to Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Twisted Sister and more.
I’ve never been a fan of Nickelback, though I was once dragged to one of their concerts by an ex-girldfriend, (emphasis on ex-girlfriend), but their new single She Keeps Me Up is a large departure for the rock group.
Apart from looking like a bunch of middle-aged divorcees hitting the club, witht their 15 year-old suits and frosted tips, their sound has mutated into some sort of dance/disco ear ebola. You know, like a bargain bin version of Maroon 5.
Ever wondered what the thoroughly tiresome Bruno Mars track Uptown Funk, (which BTW is a total rip-off of James Brown’s Living In America), would sound like without the music?
Wonder no more. For behold the power of the t’internet.
