For a band being around for 20 years, you would think there would be no way that someone could condense the band’s full career and discography into a simple five-minute video.
That is where you would be wrong. Last month, a video featuring Kye Smith became an instant viral hit when he played a full catalog cover of all of Green Day’s songs.
Now, Smith has decided to do the same with blink-182. In his new medley, Smith tackles (practically) every track from blink, beginning from 1995’s Cheshire Cat to their most recent release, 2011’s Neighborhoods.
Travis Barker might be a little impressed by this dude (we hope). Check out the video below.
Like we had said before, Smith is no stranger to these kinds of crazy, but super cool antics. Previously, he had done a similar thing, performing NOFX’s full catalog and even did 20-minute version where he covered every Epitaph Records release.
Ever think that you would be able to hear Green Day’s complete discography in five minutes? Well, considering that some of the songs from American Idiot easily run up to ten minutes, that would be kind of difficult.
Enter YouTube sensation Kye Smith.
Smith had taken on the challenge of playing drums on every Green Day song in the time that it takes you to heat up a Hot Pocket for the Drum Chronology series.
Check out the video below as he hammers out five second snippets of each of the tracks from the California band’s catalog from albums like Dookie, Nimrod, Warning, American Idiot and more all in chronological order.
Andrew W.K. is currently in the process of making world history for drumming for 24 hours straight as part of Viacom’s O Music Awards, but last night, the party-rocker got a little bit of a surprise when Cuba Gooding Jr. came to help him out a little.
Someone took video of the attempt featuring Gooding Jr. playing a cow bell and posted it on Vine. The video can be seen below:
Gooding Jr. isn’t the only guest appearance the rocker will have to help him out on his quest; as seen in the video, Roots’ drummer, Questlove will also be joining the mission. Marky Ramone, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith, Billy Joel drummer Liberty DeVitto, Nick Jonas, Zac Hanson and more have joined the 24 hour mission as well.
The drumming marathon started last night (June 19) at 7 p.m. and will continue all through today (June 20) until 7 p.m.
These outrageous missions have become part of the O Music Awards. Last year, the Flaming Lips did their own version of this by setting the world record for most cities played in 24 hours. They managed to perform eight shows across the Mississippi Delta which beat out Jay-Z’s former record (he did seven shows from Atlanta to Los Angeles in 2006) and finished with only 20 minutes left to spare.
Andrew W.K.’s drumming mission is currently being broadcast through the Oakley store in Time Square, but for those of us that can’t make it to Time Square, it can be streamed here.
