YouTube Star Erock Brings the Metal to ‘Avengers’ and David Hasselhoff
YouTube sensation Eric ‘Erock’ Calderone is no stranger to Loudwire, as we've been writing about the guitarist's viral videos for a while now. He's even supplied our site with it’s own exclusive shred (which you can watch below). Well, Erock is back and his most recent videos do not disappoint. This time, the musician gives a metal makeover to The Avengers theme music and tackles David Hasselhoff’s new song “True Survivor” with the help of some singing by PelleK.
Avengers: Age of Ultron came out on May 1 and has made a killing at the box office. You can catch Erock's metal take on the music in the three-and-a-half minute clip above.
In the video below, watch as Erock and singer PelleK put their spin on Baywatch actor David Hasselhoff’s new song “True Survivor.” Their cover was only posted a few days ago and already has a ton of views and is getting rave reviews from YouTube commenters. While you're at it, watch the original video from The Hoff, who performs the song for the Kickstarter funded film Kung Fury. We've pasted the original clip right below Erock's version.
And while we’ve already given you several clips to view, any Mortal Kombat fans out there should make sure to watch one more clip from Calderone. The guitarist puts himself into one of the old school backdrops from the fighting game, and puts a metal spin on the theme music while dressed as “Scorpion." Watch that here.
