You’ve heard what “The View” would sound like without Lou Reed, now you can hear what Metallica would sound like if they collaborated with another incoherent old guy. A user known as “GrampTallica” uploaded a short clip mashing a snippet of “The View” with the ramblings of Grandpa Abe Simpson. Maybe it’s because we’re big fans of The Simpsons (and so are Metallica), but not only might this be our favorite Lulu parody so far, but we actually prefer this over the real version. Then again, chances are that most things will sound better than the original version of “The View.” Well…actually, this video might prove that theory wrong.
In related Lulu news, Lou Reed and Metallica have announced additional European TV appearances. In addition to their previously announced performance on BBC’s Later…With Jools Holland (airing November 8 and 11), Reed and the band will be performing on France 4’s Taratata and Italy’s Che Tempo Che Fa (on the channel Rai Tre) in November. Though obviously only viewers in Europe will get to actually watch it on TV, we’re sure that those performances will make their way onto YouTube in no time.
And in case listening to Lulu in its entirety still wasn’t enough for you, check out a new 13 minute EPK on the album after the jump.
