Chiptune Damage: The Jackson 5 Go 8-bit

If you couldn’t make it to 8Static Fest in Philly, you missed Ro-Bear's performance of “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5. But don’t worry! He’s uploaded the jam into the digital ether of the Internet so that I can be consumed and digested by the earholes of all.

If you dig that, be sure to check out our video interview with Ro-Bear HERE and this clip of him covering Cher’s “Believe” at 8Static in Philly a few months back HERE.

Chiptune Damage: Ro-Bear Covers Cher At 8Static
Here’s a clip from last night’s 8Static event in Philly featuring Ro-Bear doing an epic LSDJ rendition of Cher’s “Do You Believe In Love?”.
WARNING! A huge sing-along approaches around the 3:09 mark.

Ro-Bear was rad enough to let us film a short Q&A segment which I’ll try and have up later this week. In the meantime, just keep re-watching the clip above and bobbing your nugget.

A Little Bit On The Chiptuned Side: Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” gets the chiptune rendition it deserves along with a video that keeps the same vibe as the original, but instead of vintage scenes of Americana, we get lots of scenes of Barbi on roller blades, but it’s totally okay.

This song’s by the chiptune artist Leeni on her EP Headphones On Your Heart,which  is currently on sale at Bandcamp and 100 percent of the proceeds go towards suicide prevention.

A Little Bit On The Beatboxing Side: Beatbox champ THePETEBOX does a live multitrack performance of MGMT’s “Kids” and it’s quite possibly the greatest cover of this song in the history of covers of this song.

In case you missed it, we previously featured THePETEBOX’s version of The Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?” here.

William Shatner Covers ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

Holy Shatner! Can you imagine just walking out of your house one day and seeing Shatner’s huge, whacky face up in the sky singing Bohemian Rhapsody? I’m not sure if would be the scariest or most awesome thing ever.

The Jurassic Park Theme is Way Better with Lyrics and a Keytar

Brett Domino figured the Jurassic Park theme by John Williams needed some lyrics. One YouTube video later, the world is a better place.

This guy might be my new favorite human of the day right after the chick who tried to blame a 3D porn for getting her pregnant.

Pete & Pete Intro Remade Shot for Shot

Some band called Tera Melos went and covered “Hey Sandy” by Polaris and re-did the Adventures of Pete & Pete intro to go along with it. In before “the original is better.”

Doctor Who Theme A Capella (With Lyrics!)

I’m not sure if Ron Grainer had any lyrics in mind when composing the Doctor Who theme back in 1963, but I’d like to think the phrase “wibbly wobbly timey wimey” ran through his head more than just a few times.

Awesome One-Man Rendition of Queen’s ‘Somebody to Love’

Nicepeter from Epic Rap Battles of History made this gnarly 1-man tribute to Freddy Mercury who would have turned 65 yesterday. Shit gets real around the 2:30 mark.

Chiptune Damage: Rebecca Black’s Friday: The Good Version

OK, “good” might be a stretch, but…

If Animal Collective covered the Fairy Fountain music from Ocarina of Time.

David Vieira sent over his chillwave multitrack rendition of one of the greatest pieces of music of videogame history. Only with more chill and less wave. The result is nothing short of trippy, euphoric, nostalgic awesomeness.

From The Internet According to Adrian:

Remember in Wayne’s World when Wayne first sees Cassandra playing at The GasWorks, and Gary Wright’s “DreamWeaver” starts to play? Yeah. That just happened.

Well said. This chick wrecks it. I don’t even like the original song except for Busta’s verse which this girl absolutely KILLS! It actually makes the song almost bearable. I would probably marry a girl based on her rapping skills alone. Unless they were better than mine.

Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Seven Nation Army.

We don’t typically feature music here on the site unless it’s of the chiptune variety, but I thought it was a strange coincidence that I came across this mash-up of two great tunes by The White Stripes and Eurythmics as well as that beatbox version of “Where Is My Mind” on the same day that my Sucker Punch review goes up. Kick-ass cover versions of “Where Is My Mind” and “Sweet Dreams” are both featured in the film.
