Epic Rap Battles Of History

By: Theron Dahlerup

I found these videos a little over a year ago and was hooked. The Epic Rap Battles of History are short videos that pit 2 people from history, video game or the entertainment world against one another in a lyrical battle of words. The 2 guys behind these videos are Peter and Lloyd (Check out their YouTube pages here. NicePeter and EpicLLOYD)

I like these songs so much that I spent over $25 bucks on iTunes so I can play them on my iPhone. Some of these are super catchy and very well written, Oh and they are funny as hell too. You can check out their new YouTube channel here to make sure you don’t miss the new ones when they come out.

Here is their most recent video of Michael Jackson vs. Elvis Presley. NSFW

Some of my personal favorites included:

Master Chief (from Halo) vs. Leonidas (from the movie 300) NSFW

Albert Einstein vs. Stephen Hawking NSFW

And the 2 times they did Adolf Hitler vs. Darth Vader

Number 1 NSFW

Number 2 NSFW
