If you’re trying to hit the ground running for a St. Patrick’s Day happy hour this evening, VH1′s already got your ultimate power hour playlist locked and loaded. They may not be Irish, but A Great Big World crammed their tune “Rockstar” into a minute-long soundbite for VH1′s Stop/Watch. Add the jam to our playlist of many more clock-racing mini performances from the archive like The Fray‘s truncated “Love Don’t Die” or Fall Out Boy‘s abbreviated “Young Volcanoes,” and you’ve got yourself an instant soundtrack fit to put back a St. Paddy’s Day pint (or three) to, one minute at a time.
If you’re up for the challenge, hit our video gallery below to see if you can keep up with the You Oughta Know alum as they attempt to beat the clock this week. My money’s on a victory since Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino gave us the goods on their strategy for chugging full speed through a hit in under a minute, “We did it a few times until we figured it out.” Looks like practice makes perfect if you want to be a rockstar. You don’t have to tell us twice. Cheers!
