Album Cover Similarity: Mercyful Fate vs Girl Talk

September 19, 2008

As some of you know, I’ve spent the past week or so totally jamming out to the samples/mixes/mashups of Girl Talk. Anyone who mixes hip-hop beats/lyrics with riffs from bands like The Pixies, The Rentals, The Breeders, and so forth (including a sweet mix of what sounds like Yo-Yo Correction: It’s actually Lil Mama rapping over the sweet double-bass part of Metallica’s epic “One”) is a good artist in my book. This is some total hipster shit.

I usually get totally obsessed over one artist for a while and totally burn myself out on them after a month or so. It’s happened with HORSE the Band, Genghis Tron, and now Girl Talk. And I have a feeling Lil’ Wayne may be next…

Yes, I am a total girl.

Anywayz, after downloading Girl Talk’s “Night Ripper” album from illegal art and jamming out on it for a few tracks, I saw similarities between his album cover and the cover art of Mercyful Fate’s “Melissa”. Nothing too obvious, but I found it interesting enough to post on my blog for future reference, mm-hmm.

  • Girl Talk – Night Ripper

  • Mercyful Fate – Melissa
