Well, how about this for the most interesting thing you'll watch all day. Whether you're a fan of Skrillex or not, he has the ability to bring totally disparate icons together in an amazing way. Earlier this summer at Electric Forest he performed with the jam band String Cheese Incident for a cover of The Doors that was pretty brilliant. This time he's done it again at Ultra JapanBABYMETAL, the all girl metal band from Japan, performed a track with Skrillex that is packed with energy. What ensued is nothing short of madness and the massive crowd absolutely loved it.

It's like kawaii swallowed Skrillex and turned into headbanging metal. I'm not too familiar with BABYMETAL but when the whole crowd has their phones out to capture the moment, it's probably a big deal. Watch the video below for a snapshot of how the rest of the world is getting down.
