Ha ha, my roommate curses the day Johnny Cash covered Hurt--when he hears this he's going to tear his ears off.

napkin - has your roommate ever heard of "Closer to Hogs" by "Nine Inch Richards"?

Ha! I knew who it was before clicking the second link. Good job, lore!

Your voice is familiar, soothing and... paternal almost, insinuating, beguiling, hiding an abyssmal evil. You've got to try the physical manifestation of Santa/Satan on for size sometime. I can see it now - the throne of bones there in the center of the mall, the black matted fur and crimson velvet suit, pointy hoary beard, is that blood or cocoa spilled there? shiny black leather spiked belt and boots... minions cracking their faces with smiled, hunched low by some black sorcery into sycophancy and eternal work. I daresay I'd be helpless to resist as you'd take me on your lap and promise me a pony if I was good and gave you my very soul.


Yay! New Fetish!

Lore Sjöberg's new Christmas carol, "Nine Inch Noels", has brought the word "BAD" to new levels of badness. Bad singing. Bad music. Bad everything. This MP3 just oozed rottenness from every bad measure... Simply bad beyond all infinite dimensions of possible badness ...

Well maybe not that bad, but Lord, it wasn't good.

I was merely going to say it was bad, but I got beaten to it. BAD.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ------------ WOULD DISLIKE AGAIN.

Gosh, is it already time to start putting up the Christmas decorations?
posted by Quietgal at 7:38 PM on August 28, 2008


Oh sure, it's good enough for bad gods, but not for mefi music?

Your friend should have his ears revoked.

This is hilarious, and also fantastic. And I'm a big NIN fan.

Not a huge obsessive one, but I like them a lot.

Oh..... my ears are bleeding but I can't stop listening!

Thanks, folks. I've been considering trying to do a better, less MIDI-ish version of this for this year. Hell, if anyone out there is better at composing, sequencing, or playing an actual instrument than I am and wants to collaborate, drop me some MeFiMail. I can't offer anything but credit, but maybe...just maybe that's enough.

I'd also love to get an actual chorus or perhaps chorale to record the last part, but I have no freaking idea how to make that happen.

That was awesome.
posted by grouse at 10:42 PM on August 28, 2008


That was fabulous!

Except now I've got the medley running through my head, and I can't stop giggling. How am I going to sleep tonight? If I'm late to work tomorrow, it's YOUR FAULT, Lore!

I can't decide if I want to hug you or kick you in the nards.

This has everything I've ever wanted (and not wanted) in a cover song. Brilliant.

Lore is demented. That is a compliment.

I don't know if I love you or hate you for this.

Either way: thank you!

This is awful. I love it.

Love this. Love.
Thank you. This may well get me through the holiday season this year.
