For the 2013 playoff year, Chip DiMonick released a lyric video for "Pump" that paid tribute to that season's edition of the Pittsburgh Penguins.  It was wildly popular but, alas, the Penguins' playoff run ended all too abruptly.

With the Pens looking hot going into the 2016 playoffs, the band updated the video to pay tribute to this season's team.  Check it out!

In the first of a series entitled "Preview From The Lab," Chip DiMonick (the man) released a video of himself performing a new mashup he created.  It's called "Everybody Wants To Rule The Walk" and combines songs from Pantera and Tears For Fears.

Though the song was included as a bonus track on their 2009 CD, "Sick Definition of Fun," Chip DiMonick never released a video for its popular Billy Joel/Marilyn Manson mashup, "It's Still Rock-N-Roll To The Beautiful People."  However, the band decided that it's "better late than never" and finally released a fun video for the song today.

The video features a slightly disturbing, real-time, one-take Photoshop mashing up of photos of Joel and Manson.  Check it out!

Despite playing their Led Zeppelin/White Zombie mashup, "The Immigrant Kiss '65," for approximately five years, Chip DiMonick's twist on these two classic tunes never made its way to YouTube...until now!

The band today released a live video of the mashup, recorded at the second annual Strip District Music Festival on January 16, 2016.  Enjoy!

Earlier this year, Chip DiMonick did a crowdfunding campaign to raise cash to make the "You Ain't Punk" video. One of the packages that was offered included having the band write a song for/about the contributor.

That package was purchased by the amazing hockey journalist/on-air personality and good friend of the band, Mr. Brian Metzer. When Brian signs off of his show, he invites his listeners to join his next broadcast by saying "Be there or be less than circular." So, he chose that for the theme of the song to be written for him.

Today, Chip DiMonick has released the song "Less Than Circular" on YouTube. Chip DiMonick gives a Kjell Samuelsson-sized thank you to Brian for helping to make the "You Ain't Punk" video a reality and inspiring a new tune!
