“Nirvana vs. Rick Astley” – Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit Up

Brilliant mashup by DJ Morgoth.

Riffs similar to that of Smells Like Teen Spirit can be heard in a lot of songs e.g. Louie Louie, More Than A Feeling, 3’s & 7’s. Catchy.

EDIT: The original video link is dead, this one works as of 2010-02-24.

Garbage – I Think I’m Paranoid

Live, possibly at TFI Friday, 1998. I have a thing for live-in-studio recordings of catchy songs.

Josh Homme/QoTSA cussing incident and Norwegian Wood ’08 concert video

As made clear in this video of Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) cussing at some jackass at Norwegian Wood last month, it’s inadvisable to throw stuff at performing musicians.

I’ve delayed posting this as I wanted to include a good source of the whole (quite good) concert, I knew it was broadcasted on Norwegian public service tv. Recordings are available on TPB and for the moment, Youtube (add &fmt=18 to the the end of Youtube video urls to get higher resolution video and stereo sound). The cussing incident takes place the moments before No One Knows.

Liam Finn and EJ Barnes – Second Chance (The Late Show, February 28, 2008)

I’m usually highly offended by any kind of miming or deceptive use of lead guitar and vocal tracks in live performances of music, but Liam Finn is excused thanks to the the spectacular ending of this video of his performance on Letterman earlier this year.
