I’m pretty sure I’ve posted some of Jimmy Fallon’s musical parodies before…I know I’ve tweeted them before. If we were incredibly worried about hits at this website, I’d add those links here in order to trick you into getting stuck on our site for hours. However, clearly we’re not worried about that…and I’m lazy. So I’m just going to post this here now..very quickly. After all, would we really be a website if we didn’t mention Tim Tebow once this NFL season?
Is there anything harder than taking ALL of the music you listened to that came out this year and whittling it down to 20 AND putting them in order? I avoid doing this every year because it takes more thought and effort than I usually like giving…well, anything.
#1 is never hard, it’s 2-20. The first spot for me this year goes to Akron/Family. S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT really didn’t get a lot of pub this year and I’ve been amazed all year. It was my favorite when it came out and nothing was able to dethrone it. Just a fantastic album in my opinion.
All my picks(22….I couldn’t keep it to 20) are below the fold. Also, I decided this was a great opportunity to use Spotify for the first time, so a sample of my list is available here. […]
Here are the Muppets rocking out to LCD Soundsystem’s “Dance Yrself Clean” and needless to say, it’s fantastic. It’d be great if the Muppets sat in for LCD’s final show at MSG, it would serve the scalpers right.
As usual, I’m probably a bit late to the party with this one. After all, it was only so long ago that I first learned what the hell a “Juggalo” is. Nevertheless, how could I let this one go without even a passing Frump? Obviously, I couldn’t, but then I don’t think you’ll mind watching again if this isn’t the first time.
Now, as a disclaimer, I can’t say I’m the biggest Hip-Hop connoisseur in the world, so this may be off base — but is this video/song not one of the more ridiculous things you’ve ever seen/heard? I mean, I had to dig a bit just to make sure it wasn’t a joke (it isn’t).
The only thing left to decide at this point is which frumpin’ miracle has you the most perplexed. I’m torn between the pelican that tried to eat the cell phone on the San Francisco Bay (but then flew away) and, of course, magnets. How do those f*ck*in’ things work anyway?
Regardless, in case you were trying to keep track at home, I’ve compiled a list of all of ICP’s miracles after the jump…
It’s been 5 years since we’ve had an album released under the name Broken Social Scene that wasn’t followed by ‘Presents’. That all finally ends on May 4th when their new album “Forgiveness Rock Record” graces our presence(album art above). BSS lineups have varied in the past and have a tendency to get a bit largel, but according to frontman Kevin Drew, this album was written and performed by a core group of 6. Of course, in true BSS style, that core group may not be the only ones playing on any particular track. Guests on this album include Leslie Feist, Stars’ Amy Millan and Evan Cranley, Metric’s Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw, Jason Collett, and of course more.
As if you had any doubts on whether or not this release will stack up with prior BSS albums, the recent single release should ease your mind. Below, feel free to listen to the 7 minute “World Sick”, which is the first track we’re able to hear off FRR. Also, after the frump, you can give your email address and BSS will let you download your very own version of the song. Enjoy!
Well, Valentine’s Day is coming to a close. If you haven’t gotten around to showing off your sausage skills yet, your opportunities have just about exhausted themselves, so why not close out the night with a classic jam (and one that is certainly topical)?
It’s true, love ain’t for keeping. I stand firmly by that notion, as do The Who. Sure, maybe some say Pete Townshend allegedly should have kept a bit more of his love to himself, but, tonight, that’s neither here nor there. Take this one in, and take it in well. Together. It’s short and sweet, and, curiously, happens to be followed up on the album by a song about escaping from one’s wife (after the jump). You be the judge of that. Happy Valentine’s Day, Frumpsters!
In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, I held back on our weekly classic jam feature til today. All apologies.
90% of the time, I prefer originals to covers (every time), but occasionally you have to make an exception — Namely, when the cover in question just jams your frumpin’ pants off as much as this one does.
I guess the fact that Stevie Wonder actually wrote this for Jeff Beck helps, too. However, Stevie’s manager apparently liked the song so much that he insisted Wonder record it first (which he did), and the rest is history. Wonder instead offered “Since We’ve Ended As Lovers” to Beck as an exclusive, and Beck pressed that on his landmark fusion jazz album, Blow By Blow (1975).
You can find “Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers” after the frump, but, for now, here’s Beck, Bogert and Appice’s cover of “Superstition.” Check your volume, and hold onto to your frumpin’ pants…
Since the GingerHeadMan let us all down by neglecting to do this Wednesday Jam, the Admiral is here to save the week.
The upcoming album by Broken Bells is the side project of James Mercer(The Shins) with Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, The Grey Album).
The record isn’t out yet, but it has leaked all over the intertronz and should not be hard to find for those who know how to work Google the way it was meant to be worked.
If you’re old school and want to actually only listen to it AFTER you buy it, then you’ll have to wait until March 9th, 2010. With a leak occurring this far in advance, though, I’m going to guess that release date is pushed upped drastically.
For now, listen and enjoy…and make the jump for another Broken Bells cut.
We all remember the 1985 Chicago Bears and their Grammy nominated(look it up) “hit”, “The Super Bowl Shuffle”. In fact, you may actually remember the parody on SNL moreso. If you’re like me, when you first saw the shuffle your thought process would’ve been something along the lines of “Holy crap, those dudes look ridiculous and I would rather be caught holding the lighter in the next Amy Winehouse crack video than look that absurd on film”.
Well, apparently the other squads in the NFL didn’t take the hint and wanted to leave their truly unforgettable mark on the world of “music videos”. Here is just a sample of the visual and auditory torture the NFL inflicted on us in the 80’s and the early 90’s. Watch below at your own risk as the Miami Dolphins perform their hearts out in “Can’t Touch Us”…presented commercial free by Zubaz. Also, check out a collection of the worst raps perpetrated by the NFL after the jump!
