J R R Tolkien’s work “The Hobbit” and the Lord of the Rings trilogy are basically the birth of modern fantasy work. It has spawned much analysis, art, games, and movies. So of course there is plenty of fan music inspired by this work.
1. Lord of the Rhymes the masters of Hobbit rap
3. Middle Earth Needs Me by the Consortium of Genius does not just talk about Tolkien works, but is still very cool.
4. The Lonely Mountain Band a Tolkien inspired folk band made up of members of the Celtic rock band Fathom.
5. great Luke Ski’s Stealing Like a Hobbit
6. Brobdingnagian Bards take traditional Irish and Scottish folk songs, mix it up with Lord of the Rings music to create a unique brand of Celtic Filk.
7. A Middle Earth-themed lyrical throw down called Goblin Town with INT80 of Dual Core, Adam Warrock, YTCracker, and Dale Chase.
9. Here is a list of Lord of the Rings filk, though you have to make the music yourself.
10. Flight of the Concords Bret McKenzie has appeared in the first and third films in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, so them doing Frodo, Don’t Wear the Ring takes on another level.
Honorable Mention: Goes to these ten hard rock songs that each drawn from the works of Tolkien in their own way. Which is only the tip of the iceberg on hard rock, heavy metal, and similar bands with Lord of the Rings influence.
No mention: Goes to Leonard Nimoy singing “The Ballard of Bilbo Baggins.”
