Is “Ignition (Remix)” the most famous remix ever? Probably not, but I can’t think of a bigger one offhand. Regardless, R. Kelly’s 573th megahit seemed everywhere upon its release in 2002. Just saying “It’s the remix…” can get people reciting the whole thing. You may not realize it, but the phrase “hot and fresh out the kitchen” is lodged somewhere in your subconscious.

Utah indie duo Meg & Dia YouTube-d a down-home cover of the song. It features the three band members not named Meg or Dia on guitar, clapping, and basketball-bouncing (which, believe it or not, does add to the song). The description says, “We decided to give you a preview of the remix,” which may indicate that there’s a studio version coming. Or not. This is enough for now.

  1. “We decided to give you a preview of the remix,” is more or less how the actual track opens, so i guess they’re just into doing a really accurate cover.

  2. I’m so glad you guys used my suggestion! Such an awesome cover by an awesome band.

  3. this was a really cute cover, the vocals are a bit lost under the rest, but yes the basketball ads to the charm.
