The bitrate of the beast

My friend Liisa Ladouceur happened to link to this yesterday. It’s an MP3 version of “The Number of the Beast,” the classic Iron Maiden single, compressed six hundred and sixty-six times. If you like, you can download the file directly.

I hate to spoil the ending, but it basically sounds like a really crappy MP3. It’s an interesting idea, but it writes a cheque that the result can’t cash. Better luck next time, Satan.
