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.
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.
Here’s the official Better Call Saul song perfromed by country legend Junior Brown.
It aired last week in the States and due to copyright laws the video wasn’t available to view in the UK until today. The music video also serves as a teaser for the forthcoming spin-off series with snippets from future episodes. February can’t come quick enough.
This was recorded earlier this week at Radio One’s Live Lounge when rock band Kasabian covered Iggy Azalea’s hit pop tune Fancy.
There’s a nice little bit of Ray Manzarek action going on there in the middle.
