Involves a new high-speed supertrain making its inaugural run across the American Southwest when a meteor strikes the Earth in close proximity to the rail line the train is using. The train’s journey is interrupted as police investigate the crash. At that time, a tiny creature boards the halted train and begins to grow and devour the train’s conductor. The monster also damages the train’s drive mechanism which causes it to become a runaway. If that isn’t bad enough, the creature multiplies shortly after feeding.
If you know me by now, you know that I love a good mashup. They’re a great way to take a song that you know really well and inject some new life into it. And that’s just what pomDeterrific has done by mashing Nine Inch Nails‘ classic song “Head Like A Hole” with Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe”. Surprisingly, the two tracks works perfectly together and the song is incredibly entertaining. Give it a listen below and you can also download it here. READ MORE

Personally, and maybe I’m not understanding this idea, but doesn’t it seem like you should have, I don’t know, punk bands doing Punk Goes Pop? These seem more like screamo, metalcore, and bands that fall into those types of genres. Help me out here readers, am I wrong? READ MORE
Okay, before you rip me to shreds and feed me to the wolves, hear me out: the video after the jump isn’t ACTUALLY the “Call Me Maybe” that is blanketing our radio stations like a freaking plague of locusts. Rather, it’s another pop-to-metal cover from YouTube user AndyRehfeldt! In this mashup Andy took Carly Rae Jepsen‘s vocals, left them alone, but created an entirely new musical backdrop, one that is somewhat more sinister and aggressive. The end result? I still wouldn’t blast this out of my car but it definitely put a smile on my face. Check it out below and lend your thoughts! READ MORE
