You May Love These Disney Songs, But Have You Heard Them In Their Native Languages?

Disney movies are childhood staples. Honestly, they are loved by kids and adults alike. Their stories of love and triumph are timeless, and many people can appreciate them on some level. But the songs are perhaps the most adored aspects of these films.

Disney is responsible for creating some of the most memorable songs of all time. Almost every Disney tale is inspired by folklore from around the world, and the company goes to great lengths to translate these stories into accessible narratives for English-speaking audiences. That’s why someone went ahead and translated these famous songs into their native languages!

In Honor Of Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize, Here Are 6 Dylan Songs Made Famous By Others

Bob Dylan’s lyrical prowess has never been kept secret or overlooked, and the Nobel Committee just honored the prolific singer-songwriter with the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature.

While the win has kicked up some controversy in literary circles, it’s easy to argue that Dylan’s songwriting stands at the helm of his success. Very few artists adjust to the ebb and flow of musical tides quite like he’s done since the early ’60s. Fewer still pen lines that never lose their consequence or relevance in changing times.

His strange, relentless cadence is instantly recognizable. His iconic tracks continue to fill coffee shops, ride on radio waves, and fly in the face of generational difference. But sometimes, mastery is found in the last place you’d think to look. To honor his Nobel Prize win, let’s leave no stone unturned. Here are six Bob Dylan songs made famous by other artists.

1. “Wagon Wheel” — Old Crow Medicine Show

Dylan wrote what is now the chorus of this country-tinged favorite and ultimately scrapped it. Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show built it out with verses and released the final version of the track in 2013.

2. “The Mighty Quinn” — Manfred Mann

Dyan wrote and recorded “The Mighty Quinn (Quinn the Eskimo)” in 1967. The following year, Manfred Mann released a cover that charted well in the United Kingdom. In 1970, the original version was added to Dylan’s “Self Portrait.”

3. “All Along the Watchtower” — Jimi Hendrix

Although Dylan’s original version is one of his most beloved songs, Jimi Hendrix gave it new life with his cover, which made it onto the guitar legend’s 1968 “Electric Ladyland.”

4. “Make You Feel My Love” — Adele

Fans go crazy when vocal powerhouse Adele performs her rendition of “Make You Feel My Love,” but she always gives Bob Dylan due credit. He wrote the song in 1997.

5. “Love is Just a Four Letter Word” — Joan Baez

Baez effectively helped Dylan get his career off the ground in the ’60s by covering his work, but this cover of “Love is Just a Four Letter Word” gained the most traction in 1968.

6. “Mr. Tambourine Man” — The Byrds

While it’s one of Bob Dylan’s most popular songs, the track didn’t make it to number one on the charts until The Byrds covered it. That being said, both versions did receive Grammys.

6 Metal Band Members Who Were Somehow Much Scarier Than Their Music

As a fan of aggressive music, I’ve always been appalled by the portrayal of metal music in the media as something that’s only listened to by violent people. To me, appreciating this genre is more about loving the riffs, licks, and general roaring sounds of the music than it is about worshipping the Dark One.

But then I did some research and found out that there are some people out there who are into using metal as the background score for committing horrible atrocities against the human race. Here are a few metal band members who were somehow much scarier than their music.

Burzum’s church burning.

Church burning is a terrifyingly common thing in the extremely anti-religious world of Norwegian black metal, and no one is more notorious for burning churches than Varg Vikernes, who is known for his work in a one-man band called Burzum. Vikernes has been convicted for burning four churches, including Fantoft Stave Church, which was built in the 12th century and was considered architecturally significant.

Faust’s stabbing of a gay man.

A metal drummer named Faust — known for playing in the band Emperor — stabbed a gay man in a forest. In 1992, Faust was walking home from a pub when Magne Andreassen approached him and asked him to come into the woods. Faust, assuming that he wanted sex, agreed. He then stabbed the man 37 times.

The murder of Euronymous.

In 1993, our old friend Varg Vikernes went to the apartment of Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth and stabbed him 23 times. Vikernes claims that Aarseth was out to kill him, and that this was out of defense, but he served 15 years of his 21-year sentence. He was released in 2009.

Satanist murders bassist Samong Traisattha for not being a true Satanist.

In 2014, Samong Traisattha, bassist of the Thai metal band Surrender of Divinity, invited a fan over for a drink. What he didn’t know was that the fan intended to murder Traisattha because the musician did not truly practice Satanism. Traisattha’s wife found her husband stabbed 30 times. The man responsible eventually admitted to his crimes on Facebook.

Gaahl tortures a party guest.

While waiting for the latest Gorgoroth album to come out, the band’s lead singer, Gaahl, was arrested for torturing a 40-year-old man for several hours at a party. While the man bled, Gaahl supposedly filled a cup with his blood and said, “I’m going to sacrifice you. I’m going to drink your blood.”

Nattramn’s assault of a 5-year-old.

Potentially the most mysterious character in black metal history, the lead singer of Silence — known as Nattramn — is said to have attacked a five-year-old girl with an axe. When police found him, he invited them to kill him. He was instead taken to a mental hospital from which he wrote and released an album in 2015.

When it comes to metal, it’s all chugs and scales until someone gets hurt. At the risk of sounding like a poser, I will say that the majority of metal bands that I listen to aren’t centered around the art of darkness, but instead try to convey emotion with their music. Still, I would urge metal listeners to do their research.

This Guy Turned His Fully Functional Shotgun Into A Guitar Because Humans Are Insane

When I was a little kid, I once made a guitar out of an empty tissue box. I used it to strum along to all my favorite children’s songs, and I felt like a total rock star.

I wasn’t the greatest guitarist, but hey, at least I looked cute. When it comes to making instruments out of interesting materials, though, this guy takes the cake.

Reverend Peyton is the front man of his own band, and he’s proven his guitar skills during countless live performances and studio recordings. But when he grew tired of playing a traditional guitar, he sought out something that better catered to his roots. Thanks to his friend Bryan Fleming, the musical reverend now has a shotgun guitar that’s perfect for both concerts and hunting trips.

This is one instrument that might require a permit to play.
