What Is This Record I Don't Even XIII: Laibach - Sympathy For The Devil

As the packaging should indicate, this record has pretty much fuck all to do with the Rolling Stones song that's supposed to be covered six times on it, and a lot to do with Laibach (and technically-independent Laibach permutations Dreihundert Tausende Verschiedene Krawalle and Germania, in descending order of contribution) taking some lyrics and a few samples and running with it. The result is really cool, and it will take a very hardcore Stones fan to argue that it's not also immensely better than listening to the same song six times straight down.
