MC Lars song “Reaping Beauty” is all about Bayonetta

MC Lars is pretty awesome in my book. His debut album, The Graduate, gets frequent play in my car. And Bayonetta looks pretty damn awesome too. In my head, I imagined that MC Lars (with collaborators Random and Beefy) doing a song about Bayonetta would be kinda like what those guys at CERN are up to.

Sadly, for a guy who has been known to rap negatively about marketing and consumer culture, this just sounds like another advertisement to me. I can’t imagine that you could really do it any other way, either, which means that those guys at CERN really ought to watch their asses before something goes horribly wrong on their end.

I will say, though, it’s nice to hear the chorus vocals provided by Tina Root (formerly of the band Switchblade Symphony). Those of you who are really excited about Bayonetta might want to look away from the video should you want to hear the song. There’s a lot of game footage in there and I’m worried I might have spoiled something for myself.

Which reminds me, I need to run out to the store and buy the game. Right. Now.
