These Videos Remove Music and Replace Them with Other Sounds

The Musicless Music Videos created by YouTube user Mario Wienerroither take fairly well known songs, remove music from them and replace the actions in the video with appropriate sounds.

In his edit of Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit,' the effect can be seen as the video's opening has been retuned to feature sneakers squeaking, cheerleaders cheering and just some random drum playing that doesn't resemble the Nirvana song at all.

Some of Cobain's vocals can be heard, but since the sounds match whatever actions are shown on screen, his voice is cut out as the video flips between different shots of the crowd, cheerleaders. At one point, it's quite comical when the song is nearly drowned out by all the sounds that would be really going on around the band. Stats for Musicless Music Videos Trending: This Year & Mild
