This is why vocoders are evil. If you can't sing, then don't!! But don't cover one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite bands and make it sound like Cher!!

This is absolutely hilarious. I know this is going to get so many haters here but I just love the sheer idea that there's a J-pop cover of a Manics song. Even if it's not particularly great tbh - bit disappointed it's actually fairly faithful to the original, just a bit more technopoppy. Still far, far from THIS IS SO EVIL MUST KILL EVERYONE RARRRRR-badness though.

The problem isn't the lack of singing capability (they're not technically bad at all), but moreso their English pronunciation.

the lyrics rest perfectly in this plastic, surreal pop context. seriously, back in the day the manics would have loved this one!
