Riff: Skrillex – “First of the Year (Equinox)”

Dec 27, 2012

CALL 911 NOW!!

from First of the Year (Equinox) lyrics by Skrillex

“Equinox” adds some toms and piano to the reused methods of “Sprites,” like the epic girl-scream (“Call 911!”) warning that “the drop” is nigh. Remove the humorously extreme “wubs,” and the remaining parts outdo similar pop on the radio (although ‘wubs’ apparently kill child predators).

  • Ben Kickland

    Baby, you’ve got a nightmare. CALL 911 NOW!!!!!

    • Karl

      Brow wow BWAH! bwuppadah BWAH bwuppadah BROWRR….
