Oh, this is amazing. And I'd like it better if it wasn't first thing in the morning.

Wow. I did not expect to like that.

This is fucking metal!

Damn, there are some sweet tunes in there.
Anyone else thinking they belong in the soundtrack of a Wes Anderson film?

Oh lord, they're brilliant! thanks, this is going to take a lot of restraint not to listen to them all NOW. I've just gone through six of them and I'm laughing like an idiot.

Check out how they recreated the ABBA sample in Madonna's Hung Up.

Your favourite band is much better than this.

it's a bit like a poor man's Seu Jorge with the talent take out

How can this possibly be for real? Do deranged Frenchmen really sing English like that? It's like some bad cartoon.

In answer to your question uncleozzy (taken from the main page):
This website is nothing else but a big joke which aim is the entertainment of people who come here... There is nothing serious here... Everything is done in a botch way of life, just for fun !
The unplugged covers are just a big joke, at the begging it was an hoax I've made with a friend on a message board... They are purposely "bad done"... So it's quite useless to tell me to stop the massacre, to learn how to play or how to sing, because nothing will change.

The Highway to Hell in French actually isn't bad. Creep (in English) is, but it does want to make me, finally get that tune--what a great song!

This is a wonderfully great post. Thanks, Wolfdog!

Some sounded better than the originals.

Cheers for the post.

Two additional thoughts:

--I really miss France right now;

--This guy should play at a Mefi Meetup--wonder how that could be arranged?!

Highway To Hell totally rawks! I wished they all ended with a nasally french accented "unh unh unh".

PP--This guy should play at a Mefi Meetup--wonder how that could be arranged?!

How about we play some mp3s for now? Check MeTa in a few days for NYC meetup info.

Best post of 2006!

Fantastic post, great stuff. "All The Small Things" and "Lose Yourself" are excellent. And the AC/DC one where he forgets the words halfway through the first verse.

If you do not know me, I am a french guy who records some acoustic cover songs,
singing as bad as possible to make it funny... Oh you will see !!!
Well, he got that right. This is fantastic, thanks!

The Mastodon cover is awesome.

Oh my God, Seven Nation Army is hilarious.

Boys Don't Cry is pretty good.

The Eminem song is, uh, interesting...

The Final Countdown is just silly.

this highway star is mind bending. check out the samples, and then the solo overdub at the end.

That is absolutely deliciously painful... thanks.

I rather enjoy the acoustic stylings of tough-guy hardcore band terror.

This site goes on my Firefox Toolbar. And, having recently discovered the fun of the GarageBand keyboard, I feel very inspired!
