British duo set sci fi classics “Terminator 2,” “Robocop” and “Predator” to music
If you’ve wondered what “Robocop” would sound like as a rap song, here’s your answer.
This ingenious video is the work of British nerdcore rappers DJ Mayhem and MC Mouthmaster Murf, two members of hiphop/breakbeat/indie band The Anomalies whose love for 20th century science fiction knows no bounds.
Their videos, which clock in at about 10 minutes apiece, feature plentiful plot exposition interspersed with video clips. Rap lyrics rhyme with dialogue background, and background beats are based on the familiar strains of thrilling movie scores.
Although the duo’s amazing “Robocop” rap is undoubtedly the best they’ve done, it’s replete with swear words and gruesome violence.
In their place, I’ve posted the slightly tamer rap video for “Terminator 2,” starring Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong and our very own California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Strap on your headphones, watch and enjoy.
