All Star: Smash Mouth song performed over Adele, John Lennon, and more
It feels like the ’90s all over again. YouTube user Jon Sudano breathed new life into Smash Mouth’s 1999 hit song “All Star” by singing the lyrics and melody over accompaniment for Adele’s Hello, John Lennon’s “Imagine,” and other tracks.
Sudano posted four videos to his channel, including similar covers using Evanescence’s “Bring Me to Life” and Neon Genesis Evangelion’s “A Cruel Angel’s Thesis,” and he’s already amassed more than 24,000 subscribers.
“Everyone’s been so super-duper supportive and I just wanted to thank Reddit and I want to thank you guys, specifically, for liking and sharing my stuff,” he said in a reaction video posted on Wednesday. “I love making the videos for you guys. It’s so much fun and I really appreciate all the generous, kind support that you guys have given me.”
