Reminds me a little of Nirvana's goofy "Smells Like Teen Spirit" lip-sync performance for the BBC, though quite a bit toned down. Also, how awesome was this Alex Chilton fellow? Pioneering the necktie and t-shirt combo, having a #1 hit tune at the age of sixteen, and then later fronting Big Star.

I'm holding out the dream that one day Mark or Jerry will do the show.

Do you know about Babymetal? Japanese theatrical metal pop (?) I guess. I can't get this fucking song out of my head. Sorry if this is already a well known thing and I'm just late to the party, but I can't imagine that's the case.

I posted this in the HDTGM forums, but I figured it deserved a drop here as well, you alternative comedy-loving darlings. Also, I'm sorry for this, this is a nightmare:
