As was noted in one of the Youtube comments, replacing Jimmy's solos with Paul McCartney screaming is all kinds of awesome. I wouldn't have expected that.

Alright, let's get to the rest of them now. There are only 74 Zep songs to 275 Beatles songs, but I guess we could limit it to Rubber Soul and later.

This is probably a relatively easy one since it's stuffing a one-and-sometimes-three-chord song into a one-chord song. Still sounds great.

Damn that was good. Makes me realize (again) how tragic John Lennon's murder was. (And I was pretty devastated when it happened. Even then I wasn't much for star nonsense, but man, John Lennon...)

That sounded really good! I like both songs and they worked surprisingly well together.

What everyone else said, plus the video makes it even more outrageously sublime.

Of course, Ringo is pretty much wiped out by his drinking buddy Bonham as well.

I didn't know he had a buddy Bonham problem

Jason Bonham tells of his dad getting him out of bed when he was young, asking him to "play some drums for his friends." He'd get behind the drum kit in his pajamas and start playing, then look up and see Keith Moon and Ringo smiling, sloshing drinks all over the place.

By Soundhog, also known as The Freelance Hairdresser, he made Marshall's Been Snookered - Eminem vs Winifred Atwell - and this toe-tapping version of Machadaynu from Look Around You. My favourite thing of his is this combination of Goldfrapp and Edwyn Collins which is better than both sources, I think.

His mix-tapes are here, for a diverse range of tracks colliding with each other.
