Now it's happened once or twice
Someone couldn't pay the price
And I'm afraid I had to rake 'em 'cross the coals
Yes I've had the odd complaint
But on the whole I've been a saint
To those poor unfortunate souls
In the middle of the night, my phone started going off - @LinnieLooWho was furiously sending me videos of these metal/rock covers of Disney songs. Typically, I roll my eyes at these things, having seen one too many bad metal covers on the YouTubes – but I gave it a listen anyway.
Jonathan Young is a fucking miracle worker when turning beloved Disney classics into some kickass rock-slash-metal tunes. His covers run the gamut of Disney’s repertoire, from "Be Prepared" to "A Whole New World", and "Kiss The Girl" to "The Circle of Life." His "This Is Halloween" even rivals the brilliance of Marilyn Manson’s cover.
Young doesn’t just stop with Disney, either – he has a whole section of his YouTube channel devoted to anime and video games! If you’ve been waiting for a decent rock cover of "Go Go Power Rangers," check his out.
It was almost impossible to pick just one of his Disney covers to feature today – so here’s one sample. Go check out the rest of them. It’ll be worth the hours you spend on his channel. ~MHH
