Harder, Better, Faster, Whiter

A couple weeks ago someone sent me the below video the band The Whitest Boy Alive performing live in Berlin in 2008. Though I hate the name (did you ever notice the direct positive relationship between number of words in a band’s name and band name lameness?), they've got a nice energy and it’s worth checking out. If you’re familiar with the band Kings of Convenience, the vocals of lead singer Erlend Øye will be instantly recognizable. The reason I mention it, though, is because of the awesome mash-up of the same song with Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” - one of the best I've heard.
