OCR00022 - Legend of Zelda "Rabbit Joint Cover"

Recommended Posts

This is a must-listen-to for every Zelda fan. I mean, I don't care who wrote it, it's amazing. I can never get enough of these original lyrics. And they're just plain random and funny! I think this remix will go down in history too!

Wow, OCremix has this Song!!!! Yeah!

I remember, surfing the internet one day,

I searched for Zelda tunes, curious in a way.

And as I searched, I stumbled on,

A web page with lyrics to a song.

Rabbit Joint, the page said.

A weird name, I know, and I shook my head.

I read the lyrics, Link, he come to town

And on my face, protruded a frown.

I need to hear this! I yelled aloud.

Unfortunatly, finding it was like walking on a cloud.

No luck... till one day,

I visited a friend, who as doing okay.

He turned on a CD... and Rabbit Joint he played!

Zelda... Alas! He had made my day.

I asked him to copy it for me... but he told me no!

And I tried to hurt him,

And step on his toe.

Until finally he gave in,

Copied it for me....

And so I went home, smiling with glee!

Ever since, I listen to that song,

and think to myself... nothing could go wrong.

It is the best song ever,

And always will be.... Yeah.

If I was 'The Rabbit Joint' and my song went around and millions of people around the world credited somebody else for it because of some guy misnaming the MP3 on KaZaA or something I'd be pretty annoyed.

The thing is, we DO know that it was the Rabbit Joint. The song was posted here first, and then it started floating around on Kazaa when people mislabelled it. That's why people THINK it's by System of a Down, but it really isn't. Hardcore SoaD fans have verified this for us. People have gone to SoaD fansites and done the research, etc etc.

Drop the subject.

Did you ever figure that that person was just an alt account made to piss people off?

It's not an alt; in any case, this isn't the place to discuss that kind of thing.

How can people seriously beleive it was by SoaD... That's kind of harsh...

The guy who sings it is some kind of hispanic... Nobody in SoaD is hispanic from what I know...

Hell I'm pretty sure the lead singer Serj is... Brown or something... I don't know.. He confuses me.

But I DO know that he does NOT sound like the guy who sang this song. At all.

Hi

Can you please send me the words to that Zelda song - we have figured out the first verse but cannot understand the second.

Thanks much - I have a 7 year old that loves it and I was a zelda freak back in the 80s and still play

THanks

Dan

Oh man, I remember the first time my friend downloaded this off of Napster. Is think it was about 2 years ago. I memorized the words and even tried to convince my friends what he was really saying in the song.

I love it! Should have been longer though. I can't find any info on this band anywhere except for this one song...

Haha! Spectacular! Such gusto in that voice...

I just noticed that starting at 0:44, I think the singer dubbed himself over singing in falsetto, which just sounds hilarious now that I'm hearing it.

Oh man, this song. Like everyone else, downloaded it off Napster back in 2000 or so, found out years later that it wasn't SoaD. Finding out years later (now) that it was on OCR all this time.

Still a great, weird-ass song.

Good god, how are people still pushing this. Isn't there a statute of limitations for false info or something?

Pretty overrated if you ask me, but it's gone gangbusters globally and benefited the site immensely, which is very cool.

I can see where the comparisons to Serj Tankian come from; the falsetto harmonies, quirky shaping and grizzled yelling are signature for the System of a Down singer, but I'm pretty sure that's where the similarities end. As far as production quality, this doesn't even come close to a SoaD soundtest.

As a bit of music, I would never select this as an important piece. But from a historical perspecitve, it's a very crucial, very significant monument for the site. A lot of people, including myself, should be indebted to it, but that doesn't mean I have to praise the music itself. It's nothing more than some slapped together lyrics jammed over a barebones, straightforward cover of the Zelda theme. No magic to speak of for me.

It's a good thing no one is asking you, then. Sounds like you're just jealous. At any rate, it's a fun, energetic rendition of the song that became famous because it's good. Congratz to Rabbit Joint.
