ALL STAR But Every Time Signature is DREAM THEATER’s “The Dance of Eternity”

If you’ve been on the internet, you’re most likely no stranger to memes. If you’re no stranger to memes, chances are you’ve enjoyed the wonders of Smash Mouth’s “All Star”, recontextualized in all kinds of magical ways. But maybe you’ve been left asking yourself, “Where’s the Dream Theater?”. Well, the time is now.

YouTuber Adam Marks just made this glorious rendition of their infamous tune, but with the rhythmic components from Dream Theater’s song “The Dance of Eternity” off their 1999 magnum opus Metropolis pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory. The song cycles through at least a dozen different time signatures, each containing that special Smash Mouth charm.

Warning: this will hurt your head.
