Recognize that? That's the American Idiot music video released like ten years ago. Why is it relevant? Well, I discovered a funny function with YouTube.

 

If you go to the little "gear" on the bottom right hand corner of the video(next to the "Fullscreen" button), you'll see a few settings, like the quality of the video, and the speed. 

 

I come to you today, to say, listen to the song at "0.5" or "1.5". It sounds hilarious and awesome.

 

*You need to be on YouTube itself to see the speed option*

Sorry, I forgot to mention, you need to go to the YouTube site itself to actually see the speed option.

I don't see the settings icon on GDC's YouTube player. That's why I mentioned having to go to YouTube to see it.


I like pickles.

Soon.

Eh, I just thought it'd be worth sharing this song in particular on a Green Day forum. The song "Akbar" sounds hilarious at different speeds.

Fair enough, I was just wondering if I was missing something in particular.
Isn't Akbar the Pakistani national anthem or something? Or maybe I'm mixing it up with something else :P

I always like messing with the speed on the vinyl players on the station. 

 

Two door cinema club always side like chipmunks when you speed them up.

Every now and then when I'm in a crackheaded kinda mood I like to toy around with this kinda stuff. I used to have a winamp plugin to do it. Take some of their more straight punk songs and speed em up just a little but lower the pitch to match and it's like cranking it up to 11.

I wish there was also a rewind button.

Lol I'm already a fan of doing this. Not really interesting in listening to songs sped up but I love listening to songs on a slower speed :lol:, creepy and interesting. Plus you can really study the music video and catch things about it you might've missed.

I've been inspired!  I'm going to get the acapella versions on youtube, and slow them down or speed them up, and then play some crazy random instrumental underneath it.  I used to do this with the regular speed acapella's and make cool mash-ups.
