I attended my first Karaoke to the Death event this past Sunday night at Old Town's Rocket Grill. This grassroots event has a long (9 year) history and is basically a battle of bad karaoke "artists." The gist is this: If you can't sing, that's good. If you can sing, pick a song completely out of your range and give it a go. Whoever inflicts the most pain wins. Simple really.
In honor of said event, I went looking for a karaoke themed YouTube clip for this week. What I found wasn't what I was looking for, if that makes any sense, but it features Spoon's Britt Daniel singing Wire’s “1 2 X U,” backed by the Punk Rock/Heavy Metal Karaoke Band. Enjoy.
