Way behind the times on this one, because it seems not to have gone viral – yet. But it’s a song about audio equipment manufacturer Behringer – the official corporate song. It’s not a joke. It has a big modulation and “doot doots.” Maybe someone can transcribe the lyrics.

That’s — all I can say about this at the moment.

In other Behringer news, a fake Twitter account parodying Uli Behringer has started complaining to me and accusing me of abusing the labor of my social media minions – I think. (What? CDM interns need bathroom breaks? Bah, hambug – figure out why we’re still stuck at 19,000 likes!) Correction: Not Uli Behringer has in fact pointed to this song. I’m not sure that even a fake Twitter account could add to its impact, however.

It almost rivals the “classic” KPMG (consulting) anthem. (KPMG wins out I think for having the most obtuse chord progression I’ve ever heard in a bridge, if you make it there — it might be a bridge too far.)

By the way, in one of the oddest stories regarding Internet intellectual property and music – and a rare chance of a legal team possibly trying to save humanity – KPMG legal tried to stop us from hearing this.

And you thought lawyers were evil.

I hope everyone wakes up to this post Monday morning and is inspired to a hard-working work week. Yeah. That.

Updated! Fake Uli Behringer has sent us lyrics! Well – sort of. It’ll be enough to host your own karaoke session.

    This sounds a lot like Scientology music. “The Road to Freedom” for example.

      Yes! I’m in. No one has tried yet, perhaps because repeated listenings aren’t so possible…

    I think the lyrics are about their mission statement: to seek out and find equipment from other companies, copy it, and sell it cheaper than the originals.

    KPMG Anthem is amazing. That bridge is insane, but the whole song is musical madlibs — absurd chord change fragments put together seemingly at random. I can’t figure out what’s happening starting around 2:34 — it seems like it’s the verse but WHOA here comes the key modulations?

    And because whoever wrote this wasn’t f*cking around, there’s a Truck Driver’s Key Change as well.

      Love it! :) Not random, but certainly pretty heady.

    How’d Behringer manage to get Joe Cocker to sing for ‘em?
