Devin Townsend Covers “Badger, Badger, Badger (Mushroom, Mushroom)”

If you were into huge internet memes about 10 years ago or so then you’ll remember Weebl, the website that had a ton of different looping flash cartoons with absurdly catchy songs. My personal favorites were the original Magical Trevor, Narwhals, and Crabs. But the most popular one, without a doubt, was Badgers. It honestly seemed like I couldn’t go a day without someone posting a link to that flash cartoon on a forum or in a chatroom.

Well, that classic internet video has now received a metal remix thanks to the wildly eccentric Devin Townsend, who posted the track on YouTube yesterday. The drums are courtesy of Soilwork‘s Dirk Verbeuren and the track was recorded during the Deconstruction studio sessions. Check it out below!

What was your favorite Weebl toon?

    Not a big fan of his music but you gotta love his sense of humour.

    I think I still have an amusing interview with him on Krusher’s Kosmos on Noisy Mothers way back in the early 90s. Top bloke.

      One of my favorite interviews to this day. Such a fun, interesting, entertaining guy!

        Can’t be arsed looking for the tape (50+ to look through) so I took a gamble on youtube and here it is!

        I forgot he had a full head of hair! Great to see The Wildhearts get mentioned.

          Also, I miss Noisy Mothers and Krusher. ITV should never have cancelled it. I think I might still have some Raw Power on tape aswell with an interview with Ginger from The Quireboys.

          I must try and get them all onto DVD sometime.

          That is one amazing interview setup you had! I think I had that screensaver on my Windows 3.1 desktop, haha! But seriously, that was loads of fun :D
