    Has anyone been able to find a song that synchs to that cat's rhythm? The closest I've found is the Loud Family doing a cover of the Stones "Rocks Off." But it's not quite perfect.

    So what exactly is that cat listening to?

    Can we measure the BPM somehow?

    His total movement is 8 frames each with a .1 second delay. He goes through the whole thing 75x/min and headbangs 150x/min. So 150BPM should be right on.

    A quick search reveals a few things to try:

    Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison (150 BPM)
    Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Elvis Presley (150 BPM)
    Don't Rock The Jukebox - Alan Jackson (150 BPM)
    Runaround Sue - Dion (150 BPM)
    Shake Rattle and Roll - Bill Haley & the Comets (150 BPM)
    What I Like About You - The Romantics (150 BPM)
    You May Be Right - Billy Joel (150 BPM)

    Didn't work. Jimmy Marinos can't quite keep up with the cat.

    If I had my mixer here I could use the BPM counter on it. Anyone have one handy?

    Most of the songs I like have a beat that's too slow, even the harder stuff. My best goes to: The White Stripes -- Seven Nation Army Others: Billy Idol -- White Wedding The Killers -- Somebody Told Me The Grass Roots -- Midnite Confession

    Hah, not full screen, but there is a larger version somewhere on the web along with a bunch of other cats rawking out. Some Dutch website, I can't find it at the moment.

    The one with the house cats was very funny. Well, really, it was just the pun that was funny.

    I think the problem is that the cat's bopping to a beat that's very slightly uneven, so with each loop, it'll become more and more noticeably out of sync with whatever tune you play against it.
