More Neato Viddys on the Intertubes

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Cover/Parody/Mashup/Goofy Concept Edition!

Sad Kermit – “Hurt”

In which, er, Kermit the Frog sings the jaunty Nine Inch Nails number covered to great effect by Johnny Cash. Probably not safe for small children who believe Kermit doesn’t inject drugs

Jem vs. Le Tigre – “Deceptacon”

In which the post-punk trio are reimagined as a certain truly outrageous cartoon band

It’s Raining 300 Men

In which the buried homoeroticism in a recent film is, erm, elucidated

Eurythmics vs. Donna Summer – “I Feel Love is a Stranger”

In which the late 70s and early 80s are brought together at last. Worth it if only for the footage of vintage synths

Alanis Morissette – “My Humps”

I know you’ve already seen this, but still, watch it again, you know you want to

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
