everyone on this song died this year.
you're next.

(this song is not comprehensive, and very likely someone you loved very dearly died this year and is not on this song, but to be honest i only came up with the idea to do this a couple of days ago and it's a bit of a rush job and you're absolutely more than welcome to remix this and incorporate all those extra people who moved you so greatly, and then send it to me and i'll upload it as a bonus track or something. happy new year!)

“Words like "mashup" and "remix" don't really do justice to Buttress O'Kneel's method - Top 40 pop crap gets sliced, diced, and tossed into a dizzying, exciting hardcore electro stew. Compared to other djs who timidly drop a Vanilla Ice acapella over a Chemical Bros intro just to move a dance floor, O'Kneel shreds copyrights with a blood-curdling vehemence. Smash the state!”
