Ghostbusters And Mythbusters Vie For Lyrical Supremacy In This Epic Rap Battle

fb share tweet share

This is a thing that happens frequently on the Internet now, fictional character are pitted against one another in rap battles to test their hypothetical lyrical skills, and this time it’s two different crews of busters: Ghostbusters versus Mythbusters. Actually, I guess only one of the parties in this video is entirely fictional, but with a theme like this, it’s easy enough to overlook that in the most recent installment of Epic Rap Battles of History.

If you’ve encountered any of these videos before, you already know what to expect out of this new one. They’re fun enough for what they are, and if you’re into such things, this should prove to be a reasonably good time, or at least an adequate way to kill three minutes or so while you’re trying to run out that last bit of clock at work. Just try to keep the chuckles to a minimum so the people in the cubes around you don’t know that you’re up to anything fishy.

Can The Ninja Turtles Rap More Tubularly Than Their Renaissance Namesakes?

fb share tweet share

Say what you will about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the franchise’s history with rap music has never produced anything that should have left the sewer. I doubt anyone reading this story needs reminding that official Ninja Turtle canon includes “Vanilla Ice improvising a Ninja Turtle-themed rap in the middle of a concert that was temporarily interrupted by talking mutant animals.” Thankfully, their below-the-street cred has been re-established (back up to 0) with the latest video from the geniuses at Epic Rap Battles of History. The world’s most fearsome fighting team took on…some artists or something whose names I can’t remember. I’m no history buff.

Sir Isaac Newton Faces Bill Nye In Another Epic Rap Battle Of History

fb share tweet share

Epic Rap Battles of History has been pitting famous opponents against each other in lyrical sparring matches since 2010. Over that time, they’ve had such unlikely matches as John Lennon vs. Bill O’Reilly, Genghis Khan vs. the Easter Bunny, and Back to the Future’s Doc Brown vs. the Doctor from Doctor Who. Oh, and Darth Vader has challenged Hitler three times, because goodness knows the internet loves a good Hitler joke. Now ERB is back with their latest challenge, and it pits Sir Isaac Newton against Bill “The Science Guy” Nye…with a surprise third challenger, but we won’t spoil the surprise. Well, at least not until after this…

SPOILER WARNING!

Walking Dead Rap Battles And Weird Japanese Promos

fb share tweet share

Along with Mad Men, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad are the shows that put AMC on the map. They took a channel you scrolled past unless they were showing a movie you liked, and transformed it into a network that’s one of the premiere players in the TV renaissance we’re in the midst of. And okay, so The Walking Dead isn’t nearly as good on its best day as Breaking Bad was on its worst, but then again Breaking Bad didn’t have a revolving door for its showrunners. Either way, there’s got to be some sort of head-to-head competition where The Walking Dead might actually have a shot at defeating Breaking Bad. Howzabout a rap battle?

Tesla Faces Edison In Electrifying Rap Battle

fb share tweet share

“If you haven’t heard of Epic Rap Battles of History, I’m not tattling.
But I’m addled with being saddled to describe the clever gabbing
Behind the informative assorted videos forming more facts
Than formative years of education with texts that lack the brass tacks.”

Epic Rap Battles of History, as that riffed intro so eloquently did not describe, is one of the best YouTube series out there, and its hyper-creative creators and performers, Nice Peter (Peter Shukoff) and EpicLLOYD (Lloyd Ahlquist), are kind of like the Schoolhouse Rocks! for the teen population just getting into using cuss words. It’s essentially a miniature history lesson as told through wordplay and aggressive bashing. Their 30th video, “Nikola Tesla vs. Thomas Edison,” recently dropped, and in two minutes it does more good for Tesla’s legacy than the majority of the dunderheaded Edison-worshiping population has provided in the last hundred and some odd years. Tesla, baby!
