After a 10-month hiatus, The Gregory Brothers gang is back with the fifth installment of Songify the News. And, well, lots has happened since these folks last scoured the TV talking heads for the most singable sound bites.

New track, “Bang The President,” comes from a Rick Santorum speech at the Republican Convention, and it proves a perfect sample to morph into an Auto-Tune epic. This installment focuses on ISIS, the midterm elections, bourbon, and Ferguson, Mo., among other topics.

What’s the most important fact we learn from this installment of the news? That gorilla has an amazing singing voice (especially at 1:59). Hopefully we won’t have to wait another 10 months for the next jam.H/T Digg | Screengrab via schmoyoho/YouTube
