Next time your dog gets angry, just make sure to open and close its mouth the way this person does.
Not only does it sound like dubstep, it’s also very poetic. When you watch this video, make sure you turn on the Automatic Captions. What ensues is a very heartfelt soliloquy:
And what would what would,
but with well in the lead with him in a minute,
but what happens when let me.
I said well then we’re going live with.
It wouldn’t have mattered ranch.
The ad opens with a dwindling,
but go ahead with the referendum.
Prepare to break down in tears:
Cats are animals with a variety of talents. From jumping onto tall counters to bullying humans into doing chores for them, cats can also dance to dubstep.
From watching this video, it’s pretty clear dancing comes naturally to this kitty. I mean, check out those pupils!
This bird shakes his tail feathers to a dubstep beat. This video might be only five seconds, but it does not fail to entertain. He definitely knows how to get down and jiggy with it. Yes, I just used the term “jiggy with it.”
Skrillex went solo for his new music video “Summit,” appearing sans ex-girlfriend Ellie Goulding. Instead, the video features an anonymous brunette actress who parties with her night owl friends, eventually ending up at a Skrillex performance.
Idolator suggests the music video looks like an episode of the British teen drama Skins, which is totally true. I hope someone parties like this, somewhere. And if they do, please invite me.
The track is from Bangarang and was filmed by his friends in Perth.

Canadian band Walk Off The Earth struck YouTube gold with their second viral hit “I Knew You Were Trouble,” featuring beatboxer KRNFX. The band rejigged Taylor Swift’s dubstep pop song sans instruments.
Walk Off The Earth exploded last year when they released their cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” featuring five musicians playing one guitar. It received over 143 million hits but was beat out by Psy’s “Gangnam Style” as the most popular video on YouTube.
In their new a capella tune, it’s hard to believe they’re not using any electronic instruments to create the dubstep bass.They also play off a snippet of Solomon Linda’s song “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”
The band said on Twitter: “Hey y’all. Please tweet at @taylorswift13 with our new video to see if she’s feelin’ it.” No word from her yet! What do you think of the cover?

If Buddy from Deck The Halls really wanted to pull one over on his frigid neighbour Steve, he should have added dubstep music to his Christmas light display. As if the flashing lights on this house aren’t enough to make you seize up in joy, the dubstep music adds a whole other dimension of ear-pounding fun. I bet his neighbour’s LOVE him!
The house is in Meridian Idaho and is synchronized with dubstep and other Christmas songs. Skrillex fans should fast forward to the two minute mark. While I loved the “Gangnam Style” lights, these lights definitely win.

At a nameless board meeting in an anonymous city, marketing executives discovered the eternal truth of modern day advertising: If your commercial sucks, don’t slap dubstep over it because it might give viewers an aneurysm.
In the parody by smosh, suited exec discuss how to improve a boring baby food commercial. While “boobs” were brought up as an option, the eye-patched kook in the corner persuaded them that dubstep was the only way to go.
And it works on everything! Odor eaters, lotions and cleaning products too. The only problem is that when you apply the electronic music to every aspect of your life, it wreaks havoc and destroys your soul.

Taylor Swift — “I Knew You Were Trouble”
Taylor Swift experimented with dubstep in her new single “I Knew You Were Trouble,” reflecting a more mature sound. Red is one of the most eclectic and scattered albums of the year, combining elements of country, pop, dubstep and more mature ballads. Now I’m just crossing our fingers for an aesthetically grungy music video.
Miley Cyrus — “Decisions”
Miley Cyrus isn’t just experimenting with her style these days. Along with dying her hair platinum blonde and getting an undercut, she’s recording more modern sounding songs for her fourth studio album. Cyrus was featured in Bogore’s “Decisions” and while I wish she was more heavily featured (she’s in the chorus), I’m digging the dubstep vibe.
Alex Clare — “Too Close”
The best part about Alex Clare’s song “Too Close” is the combination of dubstep with his Adele-powerful vocals. The soulful track was produced by electronic ninja Diplo and you can practically feel it in your lungs.

Have you ever wondered where dubstep originated? Some people (Wikipedia, sigh) say dubstep the electronic dance music back in the late 90s, in South London. But according to Norway’s comedy group KollektivetTV2 dubstep had a far different birth. And it’s madness, pure madness!

Will Ferrell has an awesomely confusing beer commercial with dubstep music but it’s airing only on Sweden’s TV3. In the commercial, a visibly tanned and curly-haired Ferrell opens an Old Milwaukee beer can and joyously shakes it around on the sidewalk. He finishes by giving himself a high five and doing a couple fist pumps by his hip.
The whole thing seems like a personal joke for Ferrell, considering the brand of beer isn’t even available in Sweden. This ad is one of several promoting Old Milwaukee that appeared on YouTube over the last three weeks.
The marketing campaign is kind of brilliant. As the Internet catches on to the randomness of promoting a beer on TV for an audience halfway around the world, the ads are going viral.

The Killabits teamed up with Dubstep.net so you can download their newest remix for FREE. Free is a college student’s dream — it’s anyone’s really. The DJ/producer duo’s remix “Reach You” by Engine Earz Experiment ft. Lena Cullen is being touted as a throwback to their classic gritty bass design. Plus, I’m loving the contrast of Cullen’s soft voice.

If this is what a guitar player does on a boring afternoon, then I hope every afternoon is boring for him/her because this cover is amazing! The reinterpreted version of Skrillex’ “Scary Monsters Nice Sprites” is super chill compared to the dubstep version. I feel like a busker should be playing it on a cobblestone street outside a beautiful, Spanish cafe.
The cover came about because YouTuber mingdontsing was having a very boring afternoon. Hence the name: “Scary Monsters & Lazy Afternoon.”

One way to make these adorable Internet kitties’ sneezes EVEN CUTER is to synch them with dubstep beats like Franco Spahie’s “Critical Hit Damage.” It’s like that old saying, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Actually, I’m not really sure if that saying applies to the video but you really can’t argue against dubsneezing being applied to every animal on the Internet. It’s dayam adorable. And it proves that you can make music out of anything.
Taylor Swift’s upcoming record Red seems to have a decidedly eclectic vibe, combining everything from country to pop to dubstep.The chaotic vibe and mixed genres on her newest single “I Knew You Were Trouble” complements the lyrics of the song perfectly.
She said about the track on Good Morning America yesterday: “It’s a song that’s one of my favorite songs on the album because it sounds just as chaotic as the feeling was when I wrote it. It’s a song about kind of being frustrated with yourself because you have your heart broken and you knew when you first saw that person you saw all these red flags and you just went for it anyway.”
Her new single has a dubstep vibe, though it’s not so much Skrillex dubstep as it is Taylor Swift dubstep. The track was written by Swift, along with Max Martin and Shellback. The duo also helped her with “We Are never Ever Getting Back Together.”
We’re in love! The track will be on her upcoming album Red, out on Oct. 22.

The first time I heard dubstep music was a very confusing experience. I could feel the electrifying wub wub right down in my knees but was still utterly bewildered because I’d never heard anything similar to it in my life.
When older people listen to dubstep I’m sure they’re like deer in the headlights. Take Key & Peele for example. These two guys from Comedy Central decided to throw on the electronic dance music while packing up an apartment and ended up nearly destroying the place. While one of them doesn’t quite understand the force that’s overtaking his body, he starts to get it after getting a bloody nose and breaking a few boxes.
I absolutely love this clip because it’s so damn true. Key & Peele is a sketch comedy television show starring former MADtv cast mates Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

Happy hump day!! Let’s celebrate the week being half over with this Scooby-Doo dubstep by Fagottron. “Scoobystep” gives the retro television show the wub wub treatment.
If you were to take an anthropological look at Skrillex fans, you’d probably note their unique garb (undercuts, neon facepaint and the occasional exposed breast) and their behaviour (ripping the shirts off at chubba chubba and swinging it at boom boom).
That’s precisely what Josh Haddow, trainee musicologist does. More precisely, he studies music fans in searach of a deeper understanding of humanity. In Noisey‘s “Who Actually Listens To… Skrillex?” Haddow conducted field research by doing first person interviews with the dubstep producer’s fans.
Are dubstep fans merely vague an inarticulate? Or are they part of a new revolutionary movement? The episode is absolutely hilarious and I’m crossing my fingers they keep going. I’d love to watch Haddow be thrown into the throngs of boy band fangirls. What do you say to a One Direction concert next?

Remember to be careful on the water people! Several boaters were injured in Missouri last Friday (Aug. 31) when their powerboat slammed into a large wake. Footage of the accident was taken of the family being thrown like rag dolls on Lake of the Ozarks.
Now, the footage has been converted to go with Skrillex’s “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.” The editing is pretty effective and fits with the dubstep beat. If anything, it’ll make us think twice about speeding on the water!

For newly accepted freshman, the idea of going to a new school, making new friends and becoming a full fledged “college student” might seem a little daunting. That’s why we’ve created a playlist to go with your new experiences and make the transition a little easier. From all nighters to dorm parties to just chilling out, there’s a right song for the right college moment. Buckle up, kids. You’re in for the ride of your life.
Pulling an all-nighter
“Fur Elise” — Bass Hoven dubstep mix
The first all-nighter I ever pulled was for a course during the first semester of my first year at university. Canadian History, to be exact. And the only thing stopping me from pulling my hair out and collapsing into a ball of hysterical tears at 6 am was that I managed to find music to motivate me all night. The perfect “study music” has to be relaxing, but it also has to be upbeat enough to keep you from falling asleep on top of your essay. This Bass Hoven dupstep remix of Beethoven’s “Fur Elise” is an electronic spin on a classic and will keep you focused, yet alert during your night of studying. You can thank me later when you get an A on that paper!
Your first dorm party
“Sweet Nothing” — Calvin Harris & Florence Welch
Let’s face it. As much as your Residence Fellow will stress over and over that “parties are strictly prohibited” or you’ll “get fined for playing beer pong in dorm rooms” or “running in the hallways with glass bottles is a one way ticket out of residence for good” (can you tell I broke every rule possible?) there WILL be parties, and they WILL be fun. Bust out Calvin Harris and Florence Welch’s new collab “Sweet Nothing” at your first party and you will immediately gain popularity points for having the greatest playlist ever. With Flo’s larger than life voice and Harris’ pounding house beats, “Sweet Nothing” will make your first party a memorable one — if you can remember it at all.
