There is no question that the Tonight Show is actually worth watching now that Conan has taken over, but now that Triumph has made his official TS premiere, it has gotten even better. Check out Robert Smigel and his hilarious alter ego as they rip on everyone and everything at this year’s Bonnaroo, including TV on the Radio and the Beastie Boys. And yes, the Decemeberists do suck.

The concept of creating literal versions of ridiculous ’80s videos was started by Dusto McNeato, but this may be my favorite attempt at the trend. “Emo kid wears too much make-up!”
Yes, Bill Cosby made a disco album. In 1977, he, jumped on the disco bandwagon and offered up a good-humored lampoon of the then music craze, entitled Disco Bill. It features songs like “Boogie On Your Face”. There is even a song called “Rudy”, which is only slightly less endearing, but no less entertaining, than the little Huxtable who shares its name. So turn on the disco ball, grab a Jell-O pudding snack and get down!

God certainly is powerful, but not as powerful as a teenager’s hormones. Enter the music of Michael Sweet. His groundbreaking video for “Ain’t No Safe Way” was a staple on the Christian music video channel, Z Music in the ’90s. Sweet’s metal gem warns about the dangers of having sex–even with condoms. Too bad no one warned him about the dangers of wearing jean vests and white pants.
One of my favorite parts in the movie Spinal Tap is when David St. Hubbins and Derek Smalls are celebrating their freedom in the wake of the band’s “demise”. They discuss finally being able to finish their Jack the Ripper musical Saucy Jack.
As we all know the band got back together and all was well thereafter. However, the musical went unfinished and we have been waiting to hear it ever since. Now the wait is over! The musical’s main theme “Saucy Jack” is available as a free download from the band’s website. Listen to it, in all its saucy glory, below!
Spinal Tap’s new album Back from the Dead, will be released on June 16th and will feature an hour long DVD, alternate versions of “Sex Farm” and “(Listen to the) Flower People”, as well as Derek Smalls’ previously unreleased exploration “Jazz Odyssey” parts I, II and II. Pre-order it on Amazon.
What if Kraftwerk reformed as a group of middle-aged IT dads from the early ’90s with a propensity for MIDI files, snazzy polo shirts and writing music about the things that matter most? Impossible you say? Think again:
Watch more of Tim and Eric’s genius on Adult Swim.
In 2003, Black Lace’s hit “Agadoo” was named as the worst song of all time by a panel of music writers for Q Magazine. Now it’s being re-released. Why? No one seems to have a fucking clue. The video features jerks dressed in fruit costumes and two ass-whipes singing about dumb shit. Classic:

While everyone else is at SXSW, gawking over a bunch of stupid bands, I’m right here in Philadelphia finding retarded videos for your pleasure. This one, in particular, is pure gold. Piledriver – The Wrestling Album 2 features the Hulkster, Jimmy Hart, Macho Man and an assload of ’80s wrestling stars doing the two things they do best–acting and music. You’re welcome.
MusicRadar posted an awesome list of crazy drum kits found online. It includes square drums (pictured above), recycled drums and drums made from cheese (which may come in handy when performing live at art openings). And you thought Carl Palmer’s 2 and a half ton stainless steel drum set was nutty…
Check out the full list HERE.
YES! The brilliant minds at Rather Good, who have treated us to such classics as “Gaybar“, are back with this retardedly awesome parody of The Kraftwerk song “We Are the Robots”, entitled “Kraftwurst – We Are Pork Products”.

French Electro Pop maestro Sebastien Tellier is by no means an ass, but his new video for “Roche” features a giant female one, on the beach, that he rides upon it on horseback. Essentially, it’s the album cover come to life. Genius.
Sebastien’s newest album Sexuality is available now on Amazon.
