Debuted August 15th, 2007

We're back... and up to 30 songs... including the our most ridiculous rendition yet. My Chemical Romance never knew what hit 'em.

As always, Sean apologizes for any mess-ups - he didn't know most of these songs when we started, and had to learn them off ITunes real quick and adapt them on the fly.

Sam:  
Yo.
Paul:  
I think we've gotten to the point where we're making mostly funny videos, just like the slogan says.
Sam:  
Mostly. Mostly.
Paul:  
What?
Sam:  
Like in "Alien"... "mostly".
Paul:  
I don't really do pop culture references. And I think I've only watched funny movies for the past decade.
Sam:  
You don't even TiVo or Netflix non funny things?
Paul:  
At this point, I'm so deep in the viral videos world I only watch movie previews or trailers. And only if they're doing something unique.
Sam:  
Our sweet-ass plasma HDTV is completely wasted on you. I'm going to sell it for some magic beans on eBay. And remind me to beat you with a stick tomorrow.

At the risk of sounding like a chick (even though I am), I have to commend Sean on his approach to the conventional pop culture. I personally like to rock out loud w/ my 6 string electric baby (Ibanez), but hearing favorites like Heart-Shaped Box, Crazy Train and even though I thoroughly dislike Blue, listening it played as a nocturne may just spark a little incentive to return to my electric piano. I'm still laughing my a** of at Teenagers and We Are The Champions. Keep it up man!!

Do you have the sheet music for these? It would be great if you could upload them... please? ^^
Posted on Mon, Aug 20th, 2007 at 07:27:04 PM

don't worry about it said...
if you want sheet music, go on www.ultimate-guitar.com then when you look for guitar tabs, look for ones that are in guitar pro format. Download the guitar pro program to open it. this will have the tabs in sheet music form.

I guess the sheets for the music would be too much to ask for? It's really good and these days it's kinda hard finding free sheet music... Pretty please?

Sweet Child of Mine is absolutely brilliant! Istanbul seemed kind of weird as a romance and all, but still great job! I'm kinda surprised you haven't tried any Beatles stuff yet. Yeah, I realize other people have done those songs before, but you, good sir, could add your own twist. Might I suggest Lady Madonna?

Haha...awesome job, this is really great. I especially love champagne supernova and buddy holly. how about something as a Pavane? maybe..Drive by Incubus?

Sad that here are so many old hits...So hard to guess because i haven't even heard anything from half of these. How aboat something from:Muse,The Killers,Blue October or Linkin Park?

Mesti said...
Continues to be impressive and entertaining. Kudos! As for requests, anything by Tenacious D would be appreciated, although Classico or One Note Song might be a bit of a cop out... Maybe Tribute is a bit more appropriate? :-)

Your Mom is a twit. Pathetic melodies, little or no harmony, and a pulsating beat likely to cause heart palpilations. Not to mention the lyrics regarding drug abuse and promiscuity. Clean, wholesome, family fun!

if it hasn't been stated before.... Crazy Train is NOT from No Rest for the Wicked. It's off Blizzard of Ozz. And I Still Haven't Found (What I'm Looking For) is NOT off Auctung Baby, but The Joshua Tree.

Umm. 1. Pop = Popular as someone stated earlier. 2. Hip hop is what your thinking of probably. 3. This is actually really well done. 4. Shut the hell up, grow up, and stop dissing one someones hard work, atleast they contribute entertainment to the world instead of your sorry ass who just sits and bags on it

First of all Nirvana isn't Pop. And Pop doesn't mean it's popular amongst people, it's a genre not a calculated number of how many people like something. Secondly it's probably called "Pop Songs On Piano" because it's easier than calling it "Things that people listen to these days that aren't usually on piano but here ya go!"
