    Awesome! 😀 I found two Norwegian songs in it (Aha – Take on me, Aqua – Barbie Girl). They were in Norway October 31st, but I couldn’t go cause I was at my way home from Denmark where I saw Linkin Park the day before! 😉

    WTF! hahahahaha NICE!

    That was amazing. Alright Mike be honest how many of those songs did you know? Especially the Australian artists! :’)

    Killer,… now check out mine. 🙂

    SOTD and Waiting For The End use this chord sequence in a different way, a way that makes it original. But The Messenger, now thats another story…

    and this is exactly why i did not like “waiting for the end. it was so easy, so fashionable, so conventional. as i said in a youtube comment “even the best four chords song in the world, which this may be, is still just a four chords song”. linkin park is too good to use such a lazy formula as this, let alone jump on current fad bandwagons like the jamaican rap sound. i honestly thought the song was a satire when i heard it. it’s so out of touch with the sheer alien nature of the rest of the album, and so in touch with shallow poppy conventions.

    This works for Shadow of the Day LOL

    lmao that is so true…what has music turned into these days?

  10. orionwong on September 17, 2010 at 9:33 pm

  11. kenvy on September 17, 2010 at 7:37 pm

  14. zahralp on September 17, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    really good ! Loved it ! They should have a hit with that !
    My friends site pretty cool stuff

  15. lode1989 on September 17, 2010 at 3:50 pm

    Mike, if you bring that to the stage…
    Like: Hey fans! We wanted to do a cover but because we 6 aren’t agree of wich song we decided to play a lot of songs in one song. :d

  16. Zara on September 17, 2010 at 2:40 pm

    Ive never heard of these before, funny stuff. I love that they included Tim Minchin!

  17. everyoneissleeping on September 17, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    loool… Good point XD Thanks a lot for sharing! 🙂

  18. ruben91lp on September 17, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    haha, cool medley!

    With “A Thousand Suns”, I think you really did a great job on the chord progressions of the songs!

  19. souneik on September 17, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    Haha, that was cool. They use certain happy notes for the slot machines to make you feel good and spend more. This is some sort of advance psychological warfare. Don’t worry though I have my own secret jutsu, it just takes a long time for me to store the energy up to blast it.

  20. lplovei on September 17, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    Haha, that’s funny my friends name is Jordan(1st name) Leigh(last name). They gave just gave an entire hour of you guys on FUSE. Uhhum ,anyways… This is funny! I thought they would an LP songs, or maybe even FM or DBS, since this came from you. They actually made Poker Face sound better, haha. 😉

  21. lufmeup on September 17, 2010 at 12:56 pm

    they forgot shadow of the day! (I think, maybe..:) )

  22. Alexandra Nofi on September 17, 2010 at 12:14 pm

    Awesome Axis of Awesome, is awesome.

    I wonder if any of the LP songs can fit the 4 chord… I don’t really know much about music, and never noticed the 4 chord until they pointed it out. I was kinda waiting for them to bust out an LP song…

    I’d love to hear them cover The Messenger. It’d be so funny to hear the guy with the glasses trying to scream “love keeps us kind” like Chester does. BTW, if I listen to The Messenger without listening to the rest of the album first, I start laughing hysterically. That song is meant to be an ending to that album only (which is when I take it seriously) and deserves to be heard just that way.

    Thanks, Mike, you always seem to find the best videos out there (still have STALKER SANTA on my hard drive)and once again, I will “borrow” & repost on FB & look cool & hip to all my friends…lol

  24. 3infinity on September 17, 2010 at 11:57 am

    Sure you just released a new album but there’s always time for youtube XD

  25. liasey on September 17, 2010 at 11:39 am

    A splendid medley!:)

  26. thomasbrablec on September 17, 2010 at 11:19 am

    This is a great video.
    “Chicken Little,” haha!
    @SLOWLEARNER32: I strongly doubt that. It would be possible, but it wouldn’t sound too great.

  27. evooba on September 17, 2010 at 11:07 am

    Hahaha! Looks awesome and funny. Thx for sharing 🙂

    I’ve a questiong regarding the new album and I’d be really pleased if you could answer it. How did you come up with the idea of Empty Spaces? I mean, I can get the bombs and gunshots but how did you decide to add that guy saying “Προστατέψτε τον αρχηγό”? (“protect the leader”)?

  28. Hitesh Gidwani on September 17, 2010 at 10:59 am

    So awesome….. really loved it..

  29. lena1977 on September 17, 2010 at 10:45 am

    cool & funny 🙂

  30. ewany on September 17, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Thanks Mike! That gave me a solution to my dilemma – how to listen to your new album and not get too emotionally wrecked. I’ll just listen to this in between every one of your songs and I should be fine. What a perfect case of incongruity!

  31. mellowdrips on September 17, 2010 at 10:29 am

    Whattup Mike!… Whattup everybody!… Check out my music…


  32. slowlearner32 on September 17, 2010 at 10:17 am

    So…what is LP’s 4 chord song? I guess all LP songs can be played by 4 chord!

  33. jacrid on September 17, 2010 at 10:14 am

    Haha, seen it months ago… and I’m sometimes trying to figure out if there’s a 4 Chors LP songs xD

  34. bombalurina03 on September 17, 2010 at 10:09 am

    lol, I just logged in to post about the Pachelbel Rant video but I see KathyXX beat me to it! XD

  35. maneita on September 17, 2010 at 10:08 am

    Amaziiiing!!! The Power of Music hahahha

  36. kathyxx on September 17, 2010 at 10:07 am

    This really reminds me of this too. Ironic that this applies to comedy too.

  37. Marvit on September 17, 2010 at 10:05 am
