The AV Club does this neat thing every year where they have a list of their favorite bands pick a song to cover from a gradually shrinking list. It produces some weird, random takes on popular songs and this Shake It Off cover by Screaming Females is a wonderful example.

It's pretty neat hearing such a prevalent song reduced to mostly drums and a bass line with a concise guitar solo for some added accent.

Take a listen and let us know what you think!

Hey You! Pay Attention to the Eurovision Song Contest!


If you don't know, every year for the past 60 years, the countries of Europe (and Australia for some reason) launch a competition of musical acts.

It's essentially an American Idol for the whole continent of Europe. But like injected with fervent nationalism. It's a little insane.

The first round of semi finals began May 19 and it was as enjoyable as always. Full of really interesting music, performances and surprises.

Continuing their shameless rip off of the equally shameless 1980s flick Earth Girls Are Easy, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea dropped their new video May 13. It take the familiar route of girls sits by pool, alien drops in pool, girl befriends alien, they go to club.

It features Iggy trying to act,



And even though the video looks pretty darn cheap, it was brought to you with help from Samsung.



Look how excited they are about a Samsung phone!

It should also be mentioned that Iggy co-directed this Earth Girls are Easy homage with Cameron Duddy, who previously worked with Bruno Mars on a number of videos. They're certainly positioning it as 2015's 'Song of the Summer' but perhaps the culture will judge otherwise.

Todrick Hall, renowned on the internet for his amazing Disney videos, is back at it with a new mash up of Disney lyrics and classic 90s songs.  Who knew "A Whole New World" would sound so amazing with Montell Jordan's "This is How We Do It"!

Some benevolent soul masterminded a Spotify playlist that offers almost all of the songs from Wes Anderson's eight films. Some of the Mark Mothersbough tracks are missing from The Life Aquatic and the playlist also lacks a few of the Indian Satyajit Ray masterpieces featured in The Darjeeling Limited.

Still, this is 166 tracks that span the works of a director known for deftly weaving music around his narratives. So, go ahead and listen while picturing yourself living the disaffected life in an extremely symmetrical, pastel dollhouse.

Interstellar has been cut into an excellent track about relativity and the einstein-rosen bridge. You may also know of the einstein-rose bridge from Thor, because it's the damn rainbow bridge to Asgard!
