    Has anyone else heard of Richard Cheese or Lounge Against The Machine? I love that guy. If you haven't heard them, Google it. It's totally worth it.
     
  2. FYI - they do lounge interpretations of songs by Nirvana, Deep Purple, RATM, Metallica etc.

    Good fun, but the joke wears thin after a while IMHO.
     

  3. Agreed. When I first heard his rendition of "Down with the sickness" durring that generic zombie movie, I was cracking up, and I decided to download more. It does get old after not too long.

    Yea. I don't listen to it for the laughs though. I actually like the music. Some songs sound better the swing way.

    As a way to mix things up, my old band tried this. I'll agree with Peter on this. After a couple songs, it was boring and lame.

    Yes.

    Mission accomplished.
     
  9. It is like Paul Anka's new cd "rock swings." It was good the first few times, but then after 2 weeks i gave it away.

    I first heard Dick Cheese on Mancow's Morning Madhouse, a radio show here in Chicago on Q101.1 almost 2 years ago.

    Funny the first 10 times you hear him. :smug:

  11. I totally dig Richard Cheese. I love his versions of some of the songs, not necessarily always for the halariousness of them, but I enjoy the music.

    Yup, heard one of his songs in a music tech class when we were comparing different ways of doing the same song. It was Chop Suey.

    Hahahaha. Sorry. But on that note, Gold Bond spray. It does wonders for......that.......or so I've heard.

    Good. I knew that title would catch peoples eyes. I just wasn't sure if the mods would go for it.

    And I totally agree with you Tyler Hole. That is why I listen to LATM. Not for the laughs or nostalgia. But for how much better most of the songs sound.
     
  16. I wouldn't go as far as to say I listen to them because they are better than the originals, but I listen to them mostly because I just dig how they sound in a jazz/swing setting.

    It's cool to listen to how stuff sounds with a different beat. For the same reason, however, it's best to stay away from all punk covers.
