You've been rickrolled on the blue. And you've seen nyan cat on the blue. But not in this righteously metal way. These are youtube posts to 331Erock's page for his metal covers of crazy, pop culture stuff.

This version of Tik Tok, which includes some tasteful sampling, is pretty neat.

I am not remotely an expert on metal or music in general, but this guy seems like a talented arranger and soloist.

Friday Friday.

I love his dimples and gentle smile in contrast to the killer riffs.

And the Green Lantern t-shirt.

I am so in love.

Nyan cat as metal...words truly cannot express...I suddenly have visions of a million metal-as-fuck dudes totally just like hugging and handing out giant lollipops to passersby. 331Erock looks on, benevolent, their Metal Savior. As he enters into the bridge/solo, the sun gleams off of his flowing ebony locks and the crowd pauses to lift their fists in the air, shouting with one accord


Possible solution to end global conflict? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Not a fan of the Metal Drums but his tapping techique is really pretty amazing. I like a lot of the arrangements - demonstrates some interestesting ideas, humor, etc.

It's almost as though he's waiting for his hands (well, the song) to catch up to his intent, and when they do, he looks upon them approvingly. Almost like, gosh, what took you so long. That was great, but I have new things for you to do.

Thanks for the link. Good stuff.

His cover of "Chocolate Rain" is entirely metal.

I couldn't help but think of Rick Wakeman and Journey to the Center of Earth or Knights of the Round Table. But then, I'm that old. Fun stuff.
