Riff: Skrillex – “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites”

Dec 27, 2012

Yes, Oh My Gosh!

from Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites lyrics by Skrillex

“Sprites” is a guilty pleasure party jam, and the caricature of brostep. Skrillex chops his shared alienation up in pretty synths between the comically wubby metal “monsters,” all in radio-single format. To Skrillex-hating dubstep ‘purists’: you’re taking your ridiculous genre too seriously. Enjoy.
