Anthems tend to come and go, but Method Man and Redman‘s “Da Rockwilder” has proven to be a turn-up anthem for the new century, well after its 1999 debut. But even in its 17th spin around the sun, Mef and Red’s classic is reminding us just how much damn fun it was to be alive and feeling the vibe in the late-90s, when NYC’s Mecca status was unfuckwitable and the modern-day equivalent of Cheech & Chong were reigning supreme over the rap-game, just on the cusp of their theatrical debut in the cult smash How High, humanizing stoner follies like few before them.
Now that we’ve had a moment to reflect on the greatness of “Da Rockwilder” and its everlasting glory, let us divert our attention towards a newly surfaced mash-up treatment that fits the unbridled braggadocio of a ’99 banger to the decade’s other oddball duo, none other than Beavis & Butthead, who provide the perfect backdrop for the ruckus, eyes bulging and heads at full-tremor. The clip arrives courtesy of Mylo The Cat, the viral hit-machine behind all of those priceless Muppets mash-ups. Watch Beavis & Butthead get down to the sounds of “Da Rockwilder” below and keep that ear to the ground for Mylo’s next act.
