About

Music Videos Without Music, also known as Musicless Music Videos, are edited versions of music videos with the background musical tracks removed, leaving only the audio from the video itself.

Origin

On September 29th, 2010, the Internet humor site Cracked[1] highlighted a video by the comedy duo Fatawesome, in which the music and vocals had been removed from the music video “Beat It” by Michael Jackson (shown below). The video featured added commentary by Fatawesome, which mocked the odd fight scenes in the film.



Spread

On November 3rd, 2010, the “Beat It” video was reposted on CollegeHumor.[2] On September 27th, 2012, YouTuber Moto2h uploaded the “Gangnam Style” music video without music, garnering more than 21.4 million views and 11,000 comments in the following two years (shown below, left). On April 15th, 2013, CollegeHumor uploaded the music video for “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis with the musical track removed (shown below, right). In the first 9 months, the video gained over 1.6 million views and 3,500 comments.



On September 20th, CollegeHumor uploaded another music video without music, this time using the video for “We Can’t Stop” by Miley Cyrus (shown below, left). Within four months, the video accumulated upwards of 1.18 million views and 4,400 comments.
