Rock music has been an inspiration for millions of people around the world. You can hear it being played is sporting events, in movies or even in protests. Through rock music, bands and solo artists have earned global recognition, created fashion trends and paid homage to those who have left their mark in history. Considering their popularity, it is no wonder that rock bands such as Guns N’ Roses have even become a theme for online casino slot games.
Swedish musician Martin Molin built the Wintergartan Marble Machine, a wonderful Rube Goldberg contraption to play out a rather uplifting ditty. It’s an intricate music box made up of specially crafted pulleys, funnels, and tracks that guide some 2000 metal marbles through the machine to play the different musical instruments. Molin started building the machine in 2014.
Boastful rap videos usually revolve around the rapper’s possessions and their lavish lifestyle. In $ave Dat Money, comedy rapper Lil Dicky creates the typically extravagant rap video with one exception: he didn’t spend any money making it. Lil Dicky (real name David Burd) begged and pleaded his way into wealthy mansions and night clubs to shoot the segments for his video. He was lent a Lamborghini and a yacht in exchange for publicity, and even re-cycled the music video set on which T-Pain recorded “Make That Shit Work”. There’s even an overly long but hilarious verse about being double charged for a coffee in a restaurant.
Fetty Wap and Rich Homie Quan join Lil Dicky in his attempt to $ave Dat Money. Check it out below.

The one-take video shot from a camera onboard a multi-copter drone follows the band as they start a synchronized dance riding Honda’s UNI-CUB personal transport devices. The action gets more ambitious and complicated as the camera takes to the skies over Japan’s Chiba prefecture and captures a veritable army of dancers opening and closing their umbrellas in time to the song. It’s a delight but you wouldn’t expect anything less from OK Go. Check it out below.
