Watch This Robot Band Bust Out Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People"


We all joke that robots are going to take over the world and destroy humankind, but after watching this video I'm feeling a little more concerned about robots taking over the rock'n'roll scene. That's right, YouTuber db594 created a robot band named End of Life (EOL) and they sure can rock out.
The song they play in the video below is a cover of Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People" and according to the video's description on YouTube that was a complete accident. Apparently db594 was trying to make EOL play a rendition of "Mad World" when his cello robot went on the fritz. The sounds it made reminded him of Manson's hit so much he decided to move forward.

The fact that he was able to pull this off is pretty damn impressive, but my favorite aspect of the band is probably the scanner. Yes, rather than getting another instrument involved db594 decided his flatbed scanner would do just fine as the band's frontman -- we couldn't agree more!
