Sucker MCs Better Watch Out, Run D.M.C. Is ReunitingTo Headline Fun Fun Fun Fest

Run DMC Reunite for Fun Fun Fun

Legendary hip-hop groups reuniting is as exciting as the day animator and film director Mike Judge revealed in an interview he thought about bringing MTV’s Daria back. Both of these things, although totally unrelated, give us great joy. Hold on to your britches because rap pioneers Run-D.M.C. are set to headline this year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX, per Rolling Stone. The possibilities of anticipated classics being performed like “Sucker MCs” or “My Adidas” are endless. For the first time in over a decade Joseph “Run” Simmons and Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels will reunite on stage for what has the potential to be an epic performance. Let’s hope the Rev can take one day off  from his pastoral duties and just be Run–straight 1984 style.  Read more…

Beavis & Butthead Creator Mike Judge Turns Zac Brown Into A Robo Redneck In New Music Video

The Zac Brown Band got a make over from the man behind Beavis & Butthead and King of the Hill for the video for “The Wind,” the first single off their upcoming album Uncaged (due out next week). The song itself is, in many ways, your typical country love song, complete with a chorus that rings of love that “will find you anywhere.” Animator Mike Judge’s treatment is decidedly less lovey-dovey and way more country fried. And for that it’s all the more awesome.

Judge’s video tells the tale of “Robo Redneck,” aka “The Six Million Dollar Honky,” aka Zac Brown, returned to life bigger and badder after a dramatic back-country trucking accident. Half-man, half-robot, Robo Redneck is like your average beer swigging, duck hunting, guitar playing robo-country star, except with bottle openers implanted into the tip of each finger and automatic weapons built into his biceps. And wait ’till you see the way he shreds, swapping guitar for guitar for a fiddle until he pops a valve. The video ends with a “To Be Continued,” teasing of a Robo Redneck versus Bionic Peckerwood sequel. Is there more to come from this Judge/Brown partnership? We can only hope! Read more…
