Eternal Singing Contest of Doom (Coffee cakes WINS!)

Postby Lackadaisical2 » Sun Jun 10, 2012 1:23 pm

Congratulations and Welcome to the greatest singing contest in NS history.*

Here you will have the opportunity to enter into one of the most prestigious competitions, judge (and mercilessly mock) the entrants and potentially, win the grand prize of a year's supply of spray cheese and an assortment of used men's underwear (skid marks included!). Thats right, this is a contest open only to the worst of the worst, so if you think you might have some small talent for singing, if anyone has ever said that they enjoyed your singing this contest is NOT for you. Stick around, grab a $10 bag of popcorn and feel free to cast your vote, but don't bother recording anything. This is only for the worst of the worst, so lets get down to business!

Contest Rules
The contest will be open for seven days from the time of this post to allow anyone who wants to join in to post a link to them singing something badly, or until we get ten entrants of suitable quality. The next day I'll put up a poll to decide who is the worst, whoever has the most votes at the end of a week is the the 'winner' of this contest and will receive a crate full of my possessions, a near-empty bottle of Popov Vodka and a muffin of my own design.

Entrants and Links to Their 'singing'
Lacky sodomizing a perfectly good song: "Nobody knows You When You're Down and Out"

Individuality-ness killing the first verse of Enrico Fermi High, from Zombie Prom.

Coffee Cakes singing way too softly(you better crank this shit up) Some song about cowboys and stuff.

Meryuma performing (if you can call it that) "Song Against Sex" by Neutral Milk Hotel

Added to the OP, although I don't think you stand a chance...

Anyone else wish to challenge me for the title?

Mery, your voice doesn't match your look. At all. A good attempt though (at defeating me for worst singer, that is)

CC, you are very quiet or else your microphone sucks, but I know thats not true, so it must be you.

People tell me that all the time. I actually used to have a really high-pitched, nasal voice, until a year or two ago.

Also, I second the thing about CC being inaudible.

I'm kinda jealous, tbh.

I was able to hear him when I turned my audio all the way up, but yeah.

Meryuma has the voice of a 30 year old man.
lackadaisical sounds down and out
Idividualityness sounded p. good I guess though I've never even heard the song so maybe I'm wrong
I couldn't hear coffee cakes :x

I vote for muryurma if this is democracy because he pretty much got it perfect and Jeff Mangum's pretty tricky to emulate it's not because it's one of my favourite songs.

we, unlike the bourgeoisie, have nothing to lose and therefore our expression will be the only honest one, our words will be the only challenging ones and our art will be the one revolutionary expression. We need new noise and new voices and new canvases to become something more than the last poets of a useless generation.

No, no no... you're supposed to vote for the worst one of us. :p

There will be a poll soon, so you can vote then.

This would be a great chance at fame, but I've gotten into at least three choirs for my singing ability, so I don't think this will be how I get it.

I'll shoot for it. I'll sing something old. I have many choices.

Even though I feel and do think that I sing like a dead cat and have great anxiety when performing a song.

Watch out guys. I'm considering covering a song with harsh vocals. Probably something like Amon Amarth, if I decide to go that route. I might chicken out though :blush: My death metal vocals are poor at best.
