Oh my goodness gracious. The faces on this strip are awesome, especially Hannah (Hana?) in the second to last. Glad to see some new material.
Oh, and because I have to by internet law: first.
Oh man, oh man. The progression of Hanna's expression from panel one to panel three gave me so much glee. Her face in panel three made me laugh so hard. Great story arc so far.
Hanna looks like seriously Tiny Kitten Teeth cute in panel 5 – motherfucker is straight up adorable.
Oh yeah yeah, it's all fun and games if you've never actually listened to the Shaggs, but this strip is giving me flashbacks
Hanna's face made me cry from laughter.
Then I looked the music up on youtube. It made me cry from pain. Now I feel depressed, have humans really fell to THAT low of a low?
Hanna is SADISTIC. This is why I love her.
Wow, this really is the worst music ever! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxPsXPCR5MU
According to the YouTube video you posted, The Shaggs were voted #3 best band in the world in a Norwegian newspaper in April 1988. Then again, considering all of Norway avoids vowels like the plague, I don't have much confidence in their assessment.
This is amazing! I love The Shaggs!!!!!
Yes. "It's Halloween" is my for-real favorite holiday song. I am not joking.
Panel 3 faces make me all gooey inside.
So i assume the alt txt dosent work….hmm, i feel slow for trying
My pal's name is Foot-Foot.
Eve's response to The Shaggs is the perfect way to respond to a first hearing of that…"music".
I feel empathic to Eve, this song could melt one's brain…..such a horrible beat….instruments played so badly…*shutter*
So I foolishly bought the Shaggs album and now I am afraid to play it. It has been sitting (unopened) in my apartment for about a month.
play it. You'll love it.
Its like the female Captain Beefheart, its fabulous.
Isn't that the tattoo Hanna tried to get that was hillariously misinterpreted?
Don't tell me I'm the only one who thinks Panel 2 is the best.
The glorious combo of Eve's descend into despair, and Hanna's single "Yes." absolutely killed me.
the government should consider using this…if it can make her descend into madness that quickly, it's a surefire torture technique! Poor Eve, I've felt like this before (accordion music).
This is more or less what a friend and I do to each other with Dolph Lundgren/Steven Seagal movies.
Panel 5 for some reason makes me think of sex and fear.
The first type of Rick Rolling XD
most liked comment from youtube vid of this song:
"this is what they play on elevators in hell"
i had to listen to it. but i only made it through about half the song. and now it's stuck in my head.
dear god, my ears are bleeding.
oh god. This song really is horrible.
The alt-text link (octopuspie.com/worstmusic.png) doesn't work anymore. Could you put it back up please, Meredith? (Not that I have any plans on using it…it just seems incomplete and misleading for the alt-text to mention a link that no longer works.)
i actually disagree, i think it's great. no irony here.
Suddenly it's very clear to me why God is an Astronaut only plays instrumental music.
