Everybody’s Dressin’ Funny … Cover Me Impressed!

 

Read it in the Sunday Papers …

A Norwegian heavy metal singer best known for grunting lyrics about murder and mayhem has been elected town councillor of an Oslo suburb – against his will. Gylve Nagell of the group Darkthrone, agreed to run for election in Kolbotn as a favor to officials who needed to bulk up the list of candidates. To deter any would-be supporters, the heavily tattooed Nagell put out a campaign poster that featured him saying, “Don’t vote for me.” But voters did just that, and now Nagell must serve four years as a councillor. “I’m a pillar of my community,” Nagell sighs. “I’m not too pleased about. It’s boring.”

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?
