Watch: Joe Biden Singing Metallica Is The Weird Mash-Up You Need Today
Stuff you may have noticed: America had an election recently. While confirmed loser Donald Trump is making sure the jokes about his defeat write themselves by stamping his feet all over Twitter, content creators and heroic meme artists have spent the past few weeks sizing up the new guy Joe Biden for comic potential.
Enter YouTube mash-up guy Lars Von Retriever, who has gifted the world a frankly bizarre version of Metallica’s King Nothing with lyrics taken from snippets of Biden speeches.
Previously, Lars Von Retriever’s works have included the Metal Trump series, in which he fused the orange loser with Megadeth’s Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?, Maiden’s Fear Of The Dark, and Motörhead’s Ace Of Spades. He is also, let us never forget, creator of Atlas, Laugh!, a version of ’Tallica’s Atlas, Rise! made out of the sound of frontman James Hetfield chuckling, cackling and guffawing away.
Genius, or simply someone with far too much time on their hands? You decide.
Because the Papa Het creation never gets old, let’s give that a re-watch, too…
