Biz Markie & Wayne Coyne - "I Can't Believe It's Really Happening" (Volcom Fwends 2)


Biz Markie has gotta be one of the most awkward rappers male vocalists in the history of music. But with that said, "Just a Friend" quite easily ranks within my [imaginary] Top 50 favourite songs OF ALL TIME list! Markie recently logged a few recording sessions with fellow Psych-Rock weird-o, Wayne Coyne. Together, Biz & Wayne managed to conjure up "2012 (You Must Be Upgraded)" along with Ke$ha, which was the lead-off track from The Flaming Lips' semi-recent Record Store Day comp, Heady Fwends. Now, they've teamed up with skate clothing brand, Volcom to create a child-like Yo Gabba Gabba!-inspired T-shirt line for adults ha. Volcom then commissioned Markie & Coyne to self-design a bunch of signature T-shirts along with Dave Grohl, Jack Black, "Napoleon Dynamite," Mark Mothersbaugh, and their forward-thinking kids.


"I Can't Believe It's Really Happening" is the second track to materialize from Biz Markie & Wayne Coyne's collaborative sessions, and it looks like parts of this one were recorded directly to Coyne's iPhone. The track is essentially about the very Volcom/Yo Gabba Gabba! dual-branding that it's promoting; as Biz Markie sloppily laments, "Volcom & Yo Gabba Gabba!, together @ last - Like chocolate & milk. Like macaroni & cheese. Like hamburgers & pickles..." While Wayne Coyne laces up a nursery rhyme-like tinkering piano beat, Dave Grohl, Jack Black, Mark Mothersbaugh, and Jon Heder (Napoleon), all quickly flash across the screen wearing their Volcom Stone T-shirts. "I Can't Believe It's Really Happening" is set to appear on a LIMITED ED. red 7" backed by a new [reunited] Rocket from The Crypt. There's a couple ways that you can get your hands on a copy: Being 1 of 100 lucky contest winners, buying select T-shirts online after Oct. 2nd, or simply downloading it for FREE via email.
