LEGO Video: Metallica, Devo, U2, Queen, Daft Punk, System of a Down, Red Hot Chili Peppers

Oh, friends. I seriously fell down the YouTube rabbit hole this weekend, thanks to an innocuous (but intriguing) link from a blog that said "Lego Metallica." From that video -- which is below -- I discovered a whole new world: that of LEGO versions of bands, songs and music videos. The gold standard appears to be the person who did five "System of a Lego" videos (see below), but other clips on YouTube (of which there are many) deserve mention as well.

Like the person who did a full-length version of Michael Jackson's "Thriller." The person who tackled Metallica's "One" (check the shredding). Or the many who attempted to capture Daft Punk in brick form. (See below for one of the best.)

Since nobody wants to be at work today, please enjoy these diversions. Thank me later.

Metallica, "Whiplash":

System of a Lego (a.k.a. System of a Down) "Chop Suey." See also clips for "Sugar" and "B.Y.O.B." But in "Chop Suey" I bust out laughing at 45 seconds or so every time.

Devo, "Whip It":

Daft Punk, "Human After All":

Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody":

U2, "Numb":

A frighteningly accurate version of Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Can't Stop":
