Someone Made A Drake-Mario Kart Mash-Up And It's Great

You've really gotta hand it to Nintendo fans. Instead of just moping about not being able to trash talk in Mario Kart 8, they keep coming up with bigger and better ways to show off their skills. Not satisfied with taunting people in-game, one player has put his Mario Kart swagger to song: » 8/20/14 12:48pm Today 12:48pm

See The Evolution Of The Shitty Music At The Honda Civic Tour

We get a lot of flak at Jalopnik for sometimes ragging on Honda and Acura because their cars aren't quite as enthusiast-oriented as they were in their 1990s and early 2000s heyday. I'm about to rag on Honda for an entirely different reason: the music at the Honda Civic Tour has been, and continues to be, terrible. » 6/12/14 10:30am 6/12/14 10:30am

Why You Should Never Listen To Ride of the Valkyries While Driving

Time is a slippery continuum. Watching the hands on a clock tick will feel way, way different depending on the situation; trying to frantically write something on deadline with five minutes to spare ain't the same as desperately willing a conference call to finish more quickly. It turns out that music can have an… » 2/02/14 1:28pm 2/02/14 1:28pm

Volkswagen's New App Creates Music Based On Your Driving Style

Have you ever noticed that how you drive is often based on what you're listening to? Softer music can make you a more cautious driver, while loud upbeat tunes make you more aggressive. But with this new app from VW it's the other way around. It generates music in real-time based on how you already drive, so your… » 11/26/13 10:55am 11/26/13 10:55am

Mercedes Releases Epic Innuendo-Laced Song For Its Service Workers

I don't know if this is single-handedly the greatest song devoted to service center employees ever, or the worst (hint: it's the worst). The five-minute-long epic is laced with gross and heavy-handed innuendo, and at the end you're just sort of left with gnawing questions that you don't want answered. » 7/27/13 3:09pm 7/27/13 3:09pm

NASCAR Drivers Recorded A CD In The '80s And It's The Best Thing Ever

When you think of Dale Earnhardt, you think of Talladega. You think of championships. You think of his nickname, "The Intimidator." But you don't think of him as a country music superstar. You should, and that's because he sings on a long lost 1983 album, along with other NASCAR drivers. It. Is. Amazing. » 4/17/13 2:17pm 4/17/13 2:17pm

Did VW's British Ad Agency Rip Off This Song?

Volkswagen's television ads have long been known for their very effective use of music. Their 1999 ad for the Cabrio, "Milky Way", famously used Nick Drake's moody song Pink Moon, and gave the late singer/songwriter one of the largest bumps in popularity his career had seen. It's clear that VW's ad agency DDB, places… » 5/28/12 12:00pm 5/28/12 12:00pm

Detroit Football Fans' Anti-Nickelback Crusade Drawing Major Support

The resilient, rough chuckles-enduring people of Detroit put up with dog poop air, crime-ring moms, crime-ring stray dogs, fake Koch evictions, and 1,001 other ills. But they refuse to sit through a Nickelback half-time show during this Thanksgiving's Lions-Packers game. Uninspired Canadian crap rock is where they… » 11/05/11 7:30am 11/05/11 7:30am
