Video WILT #1

Since the YouTube Posts I've thrown up over the last week have met with great enthusiasm (with an overwhelming cumulative comment tally of "zero"), I figured that I should give you all what you obviously want - A mega-post of you-tube clips.
I spent all weekend picking some of my favorite video clips off of YouTube as a tease for the new (completely different) Summer 2007 WILT coming at the beginning of July.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Video Wilt #1
NOTE: You may want to hit "refresh" (F5) after each video, or everything starts to bog down and g-o ----- r--e--a--l ----- s---l---o---w.

Shellac – Prayer to God
Fan video for the awesome track off of 1000 Hurts.

Dwarves - Drugstore
Old Dwarves video from 1990.

Drag the River - Portland
Replacements cover from the DtR boys that keeps getting bumped off of the regular WILTs – Jon (Armchair Martian) sings on this one.

Johnny Cash – God's Gonna Cut You Down
Great video for a song I included on the Fall ’06 WILT

Against Me! – White People For Peace
I really like this video (and song) – A lot. It’s off of their brand-new major-label debut.

Bad Religion - Sorrow
Really cool video for a song that I had on the pre-WILT comp “Paradigm Lost”.

Methadones – Say Goodbye To Your Generation
If you read this blog – First off, sorry - Secondly, you should know all about this band by now. Essentially, Sludgeworth for the late ‘90’s to the present.

Naked Raygun – Someday (Live)
Speaking of Sludgeworth – Here’s a clip of Dan Vapid singing the SW anthem “Someday” with Raygun at the Minneapolis show immediately following the HoB Chicago shows. This is hands-down my favorite song of all-time (not the best version, but…).
I’ve been putting this song on mix-tapes for going on 15 years. It was on some WILT awhile back.

MOTO - Dance Dance Dance Dance Dance to the Radio
Oh shit, the MOTO boys are loose on the internets. They are gonna totally clog up all those tubes. Someone call an interweb plumber – Quick!
Video for a track originally on my pre-WILT comp “Old Hipster-Douche Soundtrack (for Homos)”.

McLusky – She Will Only Bring You Happiness
I had this song on the Summer 2006 WILT.

Riverdales – Blood On The Ice
If you got the pre-WILT comp “It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time...”, you know this one. If not, It’s about Hockey.
Great cheap-ass Fan Video. Nintendo 8-bit hockey Rulz!!!

Hanson Brothers - The Hockey Song
The guys from No Means No channeling the Ramones. I fucking love this!
Another one from the pre-WILT comp “It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time...”, but this time it’s AFTER “Blood on the Ice”, not before.

The Zambonis – Hockey Monkey
More hockey goodness – Huge thanx to Ed (and Alex) for turning me on to this.

Two Man Advantage – Hockey Night In Canada
The capper to the hockey-themed songs. Look for my buddy, Mr. Mark Linskey, in a cameo @ the 2 minute mark.

Mark Linskey – The Rat Is Dead (Live)
I saw Mark in the preceding video and decided to see if he had any videos up on the You Tubes. I found this track from a show I set up for him out here in DC with Two Man Advantage opening (much to my surprise). This song was originally done by his full band, The Hudson Falcons. If you listen real hard you can hear my loud drunk ass braying in the background.

Foetus – Time Marches On
Uber-swank video for this song off of “Love”.

Turbonegro – Get It On
Everyone’s favorite Nordic death-punk band gives us this one.
The hardest part of throwing together this comp was trying to decide which Turbonegro video to include. I chose this one (not quite sure why).

The Division of Laura Lee - Need To Get Some
A track from the Fall '05 WILT comp. This has to be one of my favorite videos of all-time.

Electric Six – I Buy The Drugs
AKA: that one E6 video set in a frat-house. Hilarity ensues.

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes – I Believe I Can Fly
Karaoke iz da bomb. For some reason they couldn't get Karaoke master Old Dog to participate in this video, so they had to load it up with other lip-syncing celebs - look for everyone’s favorite jailbird, Ms. Paris Hilton, @ 1:09.

Jason Webley –Hey Ya (Live)
This is a cover of that Outkast song from the show here in DC that I couldn't get anyone to go with me to.

Tommy Heavenly 6 – Heavy Starry Chain
Viva La J-Pop! This one’s for The Girl.

Dillinger Four – Maximum Piss and Vinegar
Totally great fan video tribute to Najica anime girls that uses the D4 track for some (totally) unknown reason. Animated pantie shots galore.

Screeching Weasel – Cool Kids
Another great home-brew fan video. And yet song from the pre-WILT comp “It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time...”.

Nerf Herder – Van Halen
More dork-rock. From their first self-titled album.

Rancid – Knowledge (Live)
The guys from Rancid “covering” a track from their original band, Operation Ivy.

Jawbreaker – Jet Black
Great video for a great song off of one of my top-10 albums of all-time.

Barry McGuire – Eve Of Destruction
This is a 1965 cover of the P.F. Sloan song with modern imagery. It has bible verses in the video and ends with an image of the bible, so I consider watching this video as “church”. This could be used to free up some valuable Sunday time for you religious types.
I’m just saying…
I’ve been infatuated with this song for over a year now, and have about 10 different versions of it. I plan on doing an all EoD comp once I track down 6 or 7 other versions (thank Ed for planting that idea).

That’s it.
Now comment, you fuckers.

Glad you love Hockey Monkey. Technically, Devin told me and the boy about that one so he was the main supplier. Speaking of main suppliers - love the Electric Six video.

Jesus Christ that's a lot of Y'ube. I'll get back to you in a month.

EoD was a floatingBasement staple...I think we played it once.

The Old Dog said...

Big fun, man. Thanks. I love that Shellac song; didn't know there was a video.
