Don’t come on the Street if you ain’t strapped. This makes so much sense after seeing Bert and Ernie’s rap video.

“Hurt” sung by Kermit the Frog

September 11, 2008

A few thing before people start complaining that this is a Johnny Cash song. “Hurt” was written by Trent Reznor, and recorded on Nine Inch Nails Downward Spiral album released in 1994. Johnny Cash covered the song shortly before his death and it appeared on Cash’s American Recordings IV: The Man Comes Around. Cash even said “Hurt” was the best anti-drug song he’d ever heard. Kermit the Frog even did his own version, and after watching the video below, you’ll agree with Cash’s sentiments.
NSFW language (1 word describing excrement) and also gratuitous Muppet drug abuse and 1 particularly frightening scene that shows the depths that Kermit has plunged to and what he’ll subject himself to for a fix.

Hil-FREAKING-arious. Muppets/Sesame Street+hip-hop=can’t lose. NSFW language. Well, sporadic use of the N-word, which I guess is ok to use if you’re African-American. If you happen to be of any other ethnicity, it’s off limits and you better not think of saying it if you’re singing along with this song, you racist jerk.
