If you're anything like us, Under Pressure by David Bowie and Queen ranks as one of the greatest songs of all time. But what happens when Smashmouth decides to cover one of David Bowie's greatest songs. Does Smashmouth's Under Pressure cover turn into one of the worst songs of all time?
We asked a bunch of people at Ranker to find out -- putting them through the torture (or perhaps delight) of listening to Under Pressure, without showing them the official music video.
Under Pressure by David Bowie and Queen might be the best song of all time, or at least rank up there as one David Bowie song that ranks amongst the great, but what could possibly happen when Smashmouth takes the cover for a spin?
Here we go...
It seems like anyone and everyone wanted to be an instant millionaire and tried to cash in on the 2016 powerball…maybe we at Ranker were guilty ourselves of dreaming of winning the lottery big.
But what happens when you win the lottery? Paul and Puppet are back with internet is your fault, the only internet news show to take trending stories and to tell it like it is. Stupid lottery winners are a dime a dozen, but the powerball lottery winner for 2016 might actually be in horrible danger. Why? Well we take a look at a ranker list that might not be too auspicious for the lottery winners, in this case our correspondent Ashley Carmichael.
Where are the lottery winners now and what happens when you win the lottery? We hate to be the bear of bad news, but if the internet is your fault is good for anything, it’s the ability to tell the story like it is. No matter how difficult it might be for some people.
Now I'm writing this description as someone who is slightly pained by the sight of holes in skin and it's safe to say I have a fear of holes overall. This video is meant to test for trypophobia, the fancy name of the condition which describes a fear of holes.
For those of you who have social anxiety disorder, which yes is also me, and are actively searching for anxiety disorder treatment, this video is mean to be something of a trypophobia test to determine just how severe your fear of holes might become. You see the image of lotus flowers and lotus boob and it sets you off? Then that's one way to test.
As is the photo on the very thumbnail of this video, illustrating a person who had kneeled on a bag of pees (that's to alert your fear of skin).
Sp without further ado lotus flower and/or lotus boob haters, here is your test and fact sheet on Trypophobia.
The biggest douchebags in Hollywood, aka the biggest douche in the universebiggest douche in the universe presented by Ranker. These are the people we love to hate and wish we could remove from our happy, cozy world. These people are famous, but often not for being talented, like top Hollywood actors or Grammy-winning musicians, but rather for being entitled, arrogant, self-obsessed, and rude. For many of these people, any press is considered good press which only feeds into their attention-seeking, annoying ways.
An awful trend among many of these biggest Hollywood douchebags is that many are only famous for being famous. Or for a sex tape. Others are simply awful people. Rapper Kanye West is no stranger to awkward unscripted moments on live television. Chris Brown will always be marred by his domestic violence against former girlfriend Rihanna. Donald Trump might be rich and successful, but no one will forget his birther nonsense against President Obama.
Demi Lovato has once again taken over the internet, even if it may only be for a day. Demi Lovato took to her instagram account, in a fashion that could only be described as brave and courageous, posted an instagram pic of her scantily clad in a well lit background.
What do Puppet and Paul have to say about it? Who are Puppet and Paul? You ask a lot of good questions -- for starters, they are the host of The Internet is Your Fault -- Ranker's very own new show that runs down the top news stories of the day, like Demi Lovato's instagram pic, in a way that is an absolute mess.
Looking for Demi Lovato's hottest pics? Well you may or may not have come to the right place, after all this is a show that takes what trending in the news and makes it funny. Which given Demi Lovato's popular instagram account, certainly feels right.
The internet is your fault. You click on things, therefore, here we are with a show that makes you bear the consequences ... including Demi Lovato's hottest instagram photos.
This episode of Somebody Lied To You is all about alcohol. Does alcohol kill your brain cells?
Does alcohol shrink your brain cells? What are the longterm effects of drinking? We answer those questions and many, many more. I can't think of anyone that hasn't had someone say to them, "alcohol kills brain cells." It is a common thing for people to say. But does that argument really hold water?
The biology can a little complex, especially when you start getting into neurons, bacteria, synapses, and the cell anatomical structure... but hey, you don't need to be scientist to understand the information we present here. You SHOULDN'T NEED to be a scientist. This is good stuff to know. Somebody Lied To You is brought to you by Ranker.

It was a part of your Saturday morning routine as a kid. You’d wake up and couldn’t wait to see what the Smurfs or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were up to. It wouldn’t be us if we didn’t rank the top 10 Saturday morning cartoons for you. I mean, we're Ranker. It's what we do. That's why they call us Ranker. Well, we call ourselves that. It's the name of the company.
These cartoons were the highlight of every children’s morning. Each episode left kids wanting to come back every Saturday morning. So what are the best Saturday morning cartoons of all time? The very best kids cartoons? Find out what people like you, the fans, had to say on Ranker.
What are some things you should never google? These things. Never google these things. If you think, "I'm gonna google these things because Ranker said to never google these things" that is a bad thought and you should reconsider. Have you seen Pewdiepie's video 10 things you should never google (warning gross)?!?! Have you seen it? Because Pewdiepie warned you too. And lot's of people love Pewdiepie. Meat spin? Blue waffle? Why would you google those things in the first place? Don't google these things! These things are disturbing, they are disturbing things to google and you should not!
Maybe you're looking for things you should google? Are you? Well, you can really google anything and google will give you results. But I think you should googling "kittens." "Kittens" usually yields some pretty good google search results. But again, this is a video all about things you shouldn't google... without a shadow of a doubt, these are things you should never google. Don't make that choice. Don't put that evil on yourself. You won't be able to live with yourself for the rest of the day or maybe even the rest of the year if you search for even one of the things in this video on google and click on any of the search results you are given.
If you thought that there were more germs on your toilet seat versus your kitchen sink well… somebody lied to you.
There are germs everywhere you go. We all know that. It’s a fact of life. Someone like you may scrub every surface in your home, car, or office but bacteria just are not going to go away. How clean is that wood cutting board you use every day? Could I really eat a salad off of my toilet seat? Well today we’ve got all the answers for you. Someone is lying to you if they told you your phone was not dirty. Think of all the gross places you have placed it down. Before you get too grossed out I’ll end here. What is the dirtiest thing in your house right now? What are the dirtiest things in your life right now? Is it your toilet? IS IT? It shouldn't be! Clean your toilet. You aren't an animal. Even animals have clean toilets.
Is your cell phone dirtier than your toilet seat? Probably it is. That's because you use your cell phone to do dirty things. We see you. We're the Internet. You think we don't know what you're doing? Just kidding. We're not tracking you. But someone probably is. Point is, your phone is super dirty. That just makes sense. You're always touching dirty things and you're always touching your phone. How often do you touch dirty stuff then go and rub your hands all over your toilet seat? You don't. Do you? You're weird if you do. Sorry to say it right here out loud, but you're weird if you just rub your toilet seat all the time with your hands.
Ben Carson debate FAIL! What does that mean? Well, Ben Carson is running for President. President of the United States. And at a Republican Debate in New Hampshire, well, Ben Carson caused a bit of a traffic jam. You can go ahead and call it the Ben Carson Traffic Jam of 2016. We’re gonna call it that. And we are very important. We are the Internet is Your Fault, brought to you by Ranker.
Honestly, what are the worst Republican debate moments ever? All time is a long time. Can you think of anything that stands out to you? The GOP, all politics aside, just seems to be really good at having bad moments in their debates. Someone always says something crazy, or, like is the case with Ben Carson, someone just stops moving. Ben Carson just straight up stopped moving. He ceased to be an active member of the human race and just stalled out. Seriously, there are some genuine WTF GOP Debate moments that you can look up. Shocking Republican debate statements are just par for the course. Which when you think about it, the worst moments are some of the best moments from Presidential debates. Anyway, why are you reading this? There is a video. Just watch the video.
You know you want to breakup with your significant other but you just don't know how...
Well you're in luck. Here are 9 ways you should not breakup with them. Because would you really want to be known as their worst breakup ever? We want to spare you from the worst break up reaction, which you are already anticipating. So basically do everything opposite of what you see in this video, brought to you by Ranker, and then you will not have the worst breakup ever. I mean it would be really bad to see your significant other cry in public or your house burn down.
There are a lot of bad ways to break up with someone. But it's sort of common sense right? Don't be mean about it. If you are genuine about something it is always easier. You should never break up with someone in a malicious way... unless they've been malicious towards you. Maybe in that case it is justified. But usually, breaking up with someone should be handled as delicately as possible. After all, it is a delicate, life changing situation for both parties. The dumper and the dumped. So use your brain, and don't do any of these things. Just break up with someone and be reasonable about it if you really need to get out a relationship.
If you've ever been dumped or had to dump someone before, you know that there is really no great way to break up with someone. However, you can certainly avoid it being the absolute worst day of your life by avoiding these 9 worst ways to break up with someone
Is it? Is it illegal to film the police? Can you, Joe Schmo Regular Pants take out your phone or your camera, which you weirdly always have, and film the cops?
Yes. And also no. It's a complicated answer and that is why we, Ranker, have made a video explaining the entire issue. There's even a puppet in this video to help you more easily digest all of this information. That way you won't get into trouble by filming somebody you aren't supposed to.
Filming in public spaces, filming in private spaces, filming at your buddy's rent controlled apartment... these are all complicated things. They each present their own challenges and their own legal issues. Again, that is why we made the video. For you to learn. There are a lot of "buts" and "what ifs" when it comes to the legality of filming. Do you need a permit to film? Maybe! That's called a filming permit. Chances are you don't, unless you are filming a major motion picture... or if you don't want to get arrested. Will you get arrested for filming a cop? Watch and learn!
Who are the greatest movie presidents of all time? The greatest TV presidents of all time? In a nutshell, who are the greatest fictional presidents of all time? In the history of forever? Well, here is what the voters at Ranker had to say. And the voters at Ranker are "the people." That's right, It's a true democracy. No fat-cat expert opinions, just the opinions of the populous... and isn't that what really matters? Who do you think are the greatest US Presidents in movie history and the greatest US Presidents in TV history. I'm sure you have an opinion. You probably have an opinion even if you don't know you have an opinion. Watch the video then head over to Ranker and cast some votes!
Sure Everyone knows Harrison Ford from Air Force One, but there are tons of great movie and TV Presidents to vote on and choose from. How many times have you done Bill Pullman's speech from Independence Day in the mirror or at a party to impress your friends? Probably many times. I know I have. That's because there is nothing quite as great as a movie President. Sure. That's a statement to make.
Kanye West rants. They’re a national treasure. And they are abundant. From Kanye West Twitter rants to hearing how Kanye West rants backstage at SNL after they apparently took down his set before he wanted them to, they are all as unique and inspiring as a snowflake. Which really isn’t that surprising. These rants are coming out of the mouth and out of the brain of a grown man. And that man’s name is Yeezy. Well, the boys and gals here at Ranker decided it would be funny to see some video to go along with that Kanye West rant audio and guess what? It matches up perfectly to Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Home Alone 2 is basically a dramatic reenactment of Kanye West’s SNL rant. It’s perfect.
If there's one thing we all know about superhero movies it's that they are full of easter eggs. And Deadpool... well Deadpool is no different. Actually, Deadpool is different. Deadpool is very different, that's why it has been such a success at the box office, and it's an enormous success with Deadpool fans thanks in no small part to its attention to detail and yes, all of the easter eggs.
We all know what easter eggs are. Literally and figuratively. But hey, why not watch this Ranker video and see if you caught all of what Deadpool has to offer. Maybe you aren't a crazy Deadpool fan but you want to keep up with your most nerdy friends in your next group chat together. You guys group chat right? Well, this video will help you out! Deadpool fan service, baby! Warning, there are Deadpool spoilers in this video.
The best Daytona 500 finishes of all time? The closest Daytona 500 finishes of all time? That's what this is! That's what this is here for. Great Daytona 500 finishes are the reason Ranker put this video together for you to enjoy. Ranker loves you. You love Ranker. But what you love even more are Daytona 500 photo finishes. Heck, you probably even love you some Daytona 500 crashes. Admit it, at least half of why you watch NASCAR is to watch the crashes. The sport is exciting at two moments. 1) crashes 2) the the last couple of laps and close finishes. And what are the closest finishes in Daytona 500 history? Well, they're in this video! These are the most exciting Daytona 500 moments you're likely to see!
What are the most overhyped games of all time? By which I mean video games. What are the most overhyped video games ever? Why don't you watch this hot Ranker vid and find out what thousands of voters on Ranker had to say on the subject? You have time. You should watch this video. From crappy sequels and later installments in series that just couldn't live up to the hype (cough, Mass Effect 3, cough, Arkham: Origins) to games that just were overhyped to begin with and had no chance at all of being as cool as they promised (like Watch Dogs) this list is a comprehensive compiling of more or less ill fated video games. Granted, some of these video games made a ton of money and sold a bunch of copies, but fans were underwhelmed. Are they they worst video games of all time? Some of them are... But mostly they were just overhyped. What do you think are the most overrated games of all time? Whether you wanted to be great or not, these were just bad games. There is no way around it.
