You're right. I do love this. I'm not sure what's more fun: clicking around randomly, or clicking on the same sound a bunch of times really really fast.

Change the interface a little (like make a device that will randomly play these and is small enough to hide in someone's car or office) and the potential for pure evil here is incredible.

Now I need a white Persian cat and some minions with hardhats and assault rifles.

Too beautiful for words.

Am I imagining things or is Diamond Dave actually producing 2 tones in his accent screams (like the very end of #3 (Oh God I'm Runnin' Aaaaahhhh Yaahh)? Something like the Tibetan monks or the Tuvan throat singers.

You know uh, except for those two at the bottom of the middle column they're all in alphabetical order. That's beautiful.

That's some good stuff right there! Mr. T has a good one too. Iron Mike's is ludicrous.

Oh my god yes yes YEAAAAHHHH!

This makes me want to start making an iPhone app for this.


and thank you shadow vector! hitting a single button repeatedly is like being in a vortex of Lee Roth.

Ha. My kids just came out of their bedroom to say the computer was making really scary sounds.

I just watched Thriller and mixed in some DLR quite smoothly, I must say.

Load up some Sunn O))) or Lustmord and hit that board for all it's worth. The results are sure to disturb you.

If I may add to the agony.

Go ahead.

Push the SAME button 90 times in a row, as well.

If you click all the aaaahhhas at the top all at once, it sounds remarkably similar to mass ululations of the sort heard at the end of "The Battle of Algiers."

Yes, I think he's hitting some harmonics there.

My wife and I had our first date at a New Year's Eve David Lee Roth concert in WeHo. At said concert, he grabbed a fan's cell phone, stuffed it down his pants and took a picture. It was awesome, and not just because we were both trashed.

Anyway, The Straightener, my wife and I thank you for this link.

It's what happens when you just flat-out scream, just a little more controlled. Very little.

This has produced some pretty good remixes with: Marving Gaye, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and the Beatles.

Is there a "running with the devil" button? I think something is missing. Still awesome though.
posted by winks007 at 8:24 PM on January 5, 2009


Winks, there's no "running with the devil" button because he never sings it. Listen to the unaccompanied track in the first link.

Thus, these words were uttered for the first time in human history:

"My cell phone smells like David Lee Roth's balls".

I interrupted my husband, who was trying to work, in order to show this to him as soon as I saw it. I'm a strange wife, and my husband is a tolerant man.

I've always wanted to ask this in Ask Metafilter, but I don't want to waste my one question per week.

No need to waste a question. He does. He totally does. Two distinct tones. Diamond Dave. The way you think of gods as big.

Please, please please forward this to every major league baseball team you know. There are some DLR sounds I would love to hear on the PA as commentary on stuff on the field

- I got no love (when a longball hitter gets robbed by a stellar catch over the wall)
- All I've got, I had to steal (obvious)
- AaaahAaaahYeaaah!! and every permutation (many applications)
- Goddammit baby you know I ain't lying to you.... (visiting team argues a call)
- oh god I'm runnin' (stolen base - or derisively as hitter fails to run out a hit - Manny Ramirez only)
- yes I'm livin at a pace that kills (excessive time taken to deliver a pitch, cf. Steve Trachsel)

Fun to play with, but the background burned my retinas.

That is fun but the whole thing should be controlled by your keyboard. OWYEEEEAAAAHH

I can do the two-tones thing, but not with a lot of control. Is he possibly also singing into a whistle some of the time? He obviously has one in his possession.
