Old Computer Equipment Covers “We Are Young”

I had to do this. Because I know how annoyed our own Jonah Ray gets when the subject of the band fun. comes up, here’s Toronto’s BD594 using all sorts of old computer technology — hard drives, scanners, those kinds of things — to perform a version of “We Are Young”:

It’s marginally less annoying than the original. If you need to know, the “vocals” are from an old HP Scanjet 3C, a Yamaha CX5-M is the “piano,” and a pair of hard drives are the percussion.

Now, if Jonah wanted to get revenge, all he’d have to do is… well, I’ll do it for him, BD594’s “Stephen Hawking” version of the evil Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger”:

And, of course, their biggest hit was this version of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know,” which got over 3 million views:

Clever, although what’s nails-on-a-chalkboard in original form isn’t much less nails-on-a-chalkboard when old computer equipment performs it.

    Watching this makes me feel like when I watch the turrets performing a song in Portal 2.
