4chan Music

This is what happens when you musically inclined anons come together and try to make or to recreate their favorite songs. They aren’t perfect, or even all that good, but that’s part of their charm. There have been two similar projects on /a/: /a/ Sings and Orchestr/a/. /v/ creates albums of songs, usually new lyrics to the tune of familiar songs. Other boards such as /mu/ and [s4s] opt to craft tunes of their own.

/a/

/a/ Sings

Orchestr/a/

/v/ Musicals

Larger in scope, and likely better organized than /a/’s music corps. Born out of the complaints and controversies in the video game industry frequently discussed on /v/, the series of musicals lampoons figures and franchises alongside taking jabs at their imageboard’s culture. Has released four albums to date. Meta Song List

/mu/ Projects

Hanging Dong

Spawned from an era of shitposting and memes, the group went on to receive critical acclaim for their eclecticism and revolutionary methods of sampling, particularly on their seminal work 'Death By Memes', a "Concept album about a man whose discovery of and consequentially addiction to memes sees him fall into a state of madness."

The Dicklink Brigade

"The Dicklick Brigade is an elusive collective of experimental musicians founded by self-righteous prick Geoff Mangum in Holland, 1945. Despite the bands' best efforts, their popularity and critical adoration continues to soar, with upwards of several people downloading each release"

One-offs

The Death Of Pablo

The death of pablo.jpg

In Early 2017, a /mu/tant had a dream where Kanye West released an alternate version of The Life of Pablo which only had four tracks.

“I keep having this dream where Kanye puts out a new album called The Death of Pablo. It’s just 4 songs, 'Ultralight Wall,' 'Washed Up,' 'Father Stretch My Hands pt. 3' and 'Fade pt. 2.' They are all around twenty minutes. It sounds like the originals but just twenty times darker in both lyrics and production also, Fade pt. 2 has 10 minutes of Kanye talking about his innermost fears and what happens when you die after a few minutes of silence”

Inspired by this anon, /mu/ came together to make his dream come true.

The album can be found on Bandcamp here.

Esfores

s4s' very own group, running three years strong. While not as prolific compared to /mu/ or /v/'s sheer numbers, Esfores is praised for their consistently high quality albums containing even more intricate references and memes than /v/'s musicals, if such a thing is possible.
