I think I’ve found something. Something big. I want you guys to know about it. I’m calling it “screamcussion”, and it’s going to be HUGE. Listen to both of these songs:


Jonnie Common – Hand-Hand

Nine Inch Nails – The Becoming

Both very good, both very different, right? WRONG. They both use the sound of screams as percussion and, magically, both are good songs. There’s more than coincedence at work here. I put it to you that the effect of adding screams as percussion improves a song. I put it to you, reader, that this is true, and the onus is on you to prove me right (because I’m lazy and not particularly committed to my research). Show me more songs with screaming in them and let’s get this notional genre up and running. Onwards!
