That voice singing the truly EPIC new "Angry Joe" theme (to the tune of the G.I. Joe movie theme) is DOUG HIMSELF.
When, at the end of his Commercial Special, having entered the start of the video depressed due to apparently being called pathetic by the director of the My Pet Monster movie last video, slumps over lifelessly... then starts to sing a parody of "Poor Jack" from The Nightmare Before Christmas (the one where Jack get back his resolve) and endeavours to carry on.
The end of thisNostalgia Chick video, in which the Critic does an amazing parody of the song Anything Can Happen on Halloween from The Worst Witch. If his spot on Tim Curry impression doesn't qualify as awesome, nothing does.
"Brents Rap", a parody of the song "Zidlers Rap", sung by Brentalfloss.
"El Tango De Pretense", a parody of "El Tango De Roxanne", sung mostly by Phelous who still manages to be delightfully hammy in his performance, making it both hilarious and strangely awesome in its own way. And of course, Doug and Lindsay show off their impressive vocals as well.
"Guilty Pleasures", sung to the tune of "Orpheus In the Underworld" by the all three of them. It is both awesome and hilarious.
And of course, "The Review Must Go On", sung by Doug with some help from Lindsay. It is naturally a parody of "The Show Must Go On", and it is also the only lyrics that Doug himself wrote. And it. is.awesome.
The ending to Silent Hill Dead/Alive has Linkara believe he killed the spirit inside his magic gun, only to realize that's wrong and stand up to the demon, declaring an epic speech on who he is. All set to The Ecstasy of Gold.
Guess who created the music for the Power Rangers Zeo #1 review? Ron fucking Wasserman.
Any of the covers done by Todd in the Shadows qualify (yes, even of the bad songs), but special note goes to the cover of "Ready to Roll" that he did for his Film Brain crossover review of Sunday School Musical.
The video is a Crowning Moment Of Awesome for singer Daler Mehndi: facing claims that his earlier videos were only popular because they had pretty women in them, he made this one with just himself, and it was still a hit.
The Warrior project, set up to raise support for the USA's military, made awesome music.
Let's just cut the middle man and say the entire soundtrack. There really isn't a song in there that isn't completely epic.
Broken Saints is full of it, but most especially: the use of John Taverner's "Alleluia" at the end of Chapter 20 - Act 5, and in Chapter 24 - Act 5. That is the reason why some people talk about these moments as religious experiences.
The mechanics of cellular biology are awesome enough by themselves, but the soundtrack to this video makes it EPIC.
There she is!!!!, a set of five Korean shorts all set to music. First three are adorable and sweet. The fourth, depressing and dramatic. The last? Imagine. It starts out with mournful pianos, then just as our feline hero sees the memorial his bunny girlfriend left behind and the rocking tunes really start up, you will not be leaving your goddamn seat until the very last of the credits, holy shit.
Just about everyone's seen Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga. (Aka "Nico Nico Medley"). If you haven't, it's a crowning music in and of itself — 10 random people from Nico Nico (picture Youtube meets 2chan) and one Robot singing an a capella medley of 34 separate anime and video game themes.
Then they top it. Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga Chorus x9, a mashup of 9 separate versions of the same medley, spliced together. That's 198 random internet strangers + 1 robot all singing together. Flawlessly.
THIS ONE is the truly CMOA-worthy one. Roughly 200 singers, if you were wondering, plus the Vocaloid.
Close. Someone did the math in the comments — 795 singers total across 36 different videos + 1-36 robots, all mixed together at the same time. Flawlessly. Top that, 4chan!
Topped: Here is a group of over 1000 people doing it across 4 anime conventions and 3 countries. (A mashup of 4 other mass live performance videos.)
The full version of On Your Knees, the middle of the song is basically Lamar Hall, Jeff Williams and Sandy Casey listing every Freelancer (Apart from York and poor, poor, Florida) and how Tex kicked their ass ...
Spiral, played during the Season 9 episode of the same name, is a perfect epic track for the high-speed highway battle that dominates the episode.
TheWorldOfMarco. Four (or five, or three or sometimes only two) Japanese guys who seem to be intent on rivaling Masaaki Endoh in creating Hot-Blooded recordings of the unlikeliest anime songs? And all this ON A YOUTUBE CHANNEL?
''Reaping Beauty'' by MC Lars, Beefy, Random and Tina Minero of small halo is a rap ballad of Bayonetta that describes the game and character perfectly while stil sounding great.
Practically Renard's whole back catalouge deserves to be on this page. To name just two more, This Place Will Grow (especially Good to Know You'll Be There) and Figurehead. The latter is difficult to describe, except that it's just utterly beatiful. The former is an free EP, composed almost entirely of samples, with this quote at the bottom of the page.
dedicated to anybody that doesn't understand how sampling can be used to create something that is entirely one's own - the people that don't understand one's identity is gathered from their surroundings. scavengers are survivors.
This rendition of the Transformers theme song is a thing of epic beauty.
Youtube user DeStorm, full stop. Pick a random video on his channel and it's bound to be this trope mixed in with a fair amount of Crowning Music of Funny. His style is R&B/hip-hop beatboxing and he's probably best known for his epic remix of Pants on the Ground. In addition to remixes and covers of popular songs, he also has a series of 80s/90s cartoon and sitcom theme covers ("Soul Toons"), and does original songs based on challenges that people leave in his comments. As someone said in the comments of one of his videos, he has more talent in his pinky than half the people on Youtube in their entirety. And he's definitely One of Us, judging by his choice of subject matter and epic collection of superhero hats.
While The 99 Rooms isn't a music-focused project, it does have two incredibly beautiful songs. The elegant harp piece that plays in Room 44 ( Where the girl is hanged), and the soft, low vocal piece in Room 93 that just makes you want to ask "Why is the angel crying?".
Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir. Taking a Que perhaps from Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga (listed above), this is him leading a mashup of 2000 singers across the world, who uploading videos of themselves singing the same song, which he mixed together. And it is awesome.
Lil Pip is an awesome piece based on the main character of Fallout: Equestria. The lyrics of the song match Littlepip's struggle throughout the story perfectly and the instrumental and vocals are pretty good too. "I'm Sick and Tired, of all this fighting. Not sure if this blood is mine..."
In fanfiction, it's hard to have good music, because of the default inability to sing, but in the Total Drama Island fanfic Candy For Your Thoughts the written lyrics are really special, some manage to even get catchy, like the one that Izzy sings about shipping.
ParagonX9 has some other good tracks, such as Blue Sky (which has appeared in 54 Flash entries, including three of the Riddle School games).
Cleod 9, creator of McLeodGaming, has composed these fantastic tracks:
"Bits for Dinner", which seems fitting for the title screen music of an 8-bit game, as per the author's opinion.
"Bits for Breakfast", a kind of sequel to "Bits for Dinner". A piece jam-packed with the vitamins and nutrients of musical awesomeness. Essentially, it could be described as the musical form of "breakfast of champions" incarnate.
