And thus, from the wood-paneled rec-room walls of Billboard Death Metal, a delicate flower of musical diversity blossoms.

The impressively focused group of hirsuite gentlemen behind BDM have now taken on, as their name implies, several recent top Billboard hits —including Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok,” Justin Beiber’s “Baby,” Rihanna’s “Rude Boy,” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now”—and executed them in a style best described as “cookie monster hopped up on Metallica and bathtub meth.”

Watch a sampling, after the jump:


The best part? The way Asian dude pretends not to know the lyrics, like he really needs the crib sheet. Better get to work on “OMG,” you two. (And perhaps a deep conditioning treatment.)

    Maybe these people don’t like clean cut pop music, so they put their death metal sounds to these mostly safe songs with Metallica styled riffs and loud guitars left and right. And I like Kesha and BoB songs but I think that Lady Antebellum is played a tad too much on pop stations. Antebellum is very much a country group.
