Aux.tv has created new website called The Skrillex Machine, which allows users to surf the Internet to the sound of neverending bass. Low-end addicts and dubstep fiends can simply go to the website, type in their desired web address and be graced with perpetual wub-wubs for as long as their hearts desire. (A rep for Skrillex notes that the Skrillex Machine is an unofficial and unlicensed use of the electro performer's music.)

Be warned, though: the bass drops never end. Ever. Well, until the browser window closes.

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
