Hey Mr. DJ
What: A new site that lets you re-mix any song with the one effect it really needs: more cowbell. Upload any mp3, then add in varying levels of “cowbell” and “Christopher Walken” and the site will mashup your song with the sound effects.
When: You have a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell.

Horse Play
