A benefit song that's truly scary

NahpicoverIn what may be the first-ever charity-parody, a group of musicians, including Beck, Sum 41, Sonic Youth, Malcolm McLaren and the Arcade Fire will release “Do They Know It’s Halloween?” next Monday. With lyrics such as, “Latvia, Laos, Chad, Peru, we need their help or else we’re through. They don’t know the fear, we endure once a year all hallow’s eve, we are afraid!”, it’s an amusing send-up of that other holiday-themed charity song. You can hear it here. Proceeds will go to UNICEF.
