    The lost Shaggs sister goes solo.

    You FOOL! Don’t touch the G string fingering A Flat Minor!

  3. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    It looks as though she’s supporting the weight of the guitar on her left forearm rather than her right hip. That can’t be comfortable.

    Being the granddaughter of Satan I imagine her amplifier goes all the way to 666.

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    Not often a cover makes me LOL and gag at the same time but this one hits all the notes.

  6. Ray P Says:

    Courtney Love: the early years.

  7. Bibliomancer Says:

    It could have been worse. Uncle Lucifer could have given her a drum kit for her birthday.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Are you allowed to argue logic with the Devil? If Rosemary’s baby had a baby then, by definition, the baby would not be a “foundling” since its provenance would be known. Does this mean I am going to hell?

  9. Tom Noir Says:

    What if the baby that Rosemary’s baby had had a baby?!?

    I smell sequel!

    Another victim of Google Glasses.

  11. Ray P Says:

    If Rosemary’s baby had a baby while still a baby it would be truly demonic.

  12. SI Says:

    Ah yes, the daemonic scales on the guitar, allows one to see in the dark.

  13. Raoul Says:

    She’s playing in the key of EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Yoss Says:

    I imagine Devil spawn having babies is how you wind up with the Auntie Antichrist.

  15. Anna T. Says:

    “Deliverance” goes hard rock, complete with actual demonic possession.

  16. JuanPaul Says:

    No, I refuse to imagine the scenario you put forth, cover blurb.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Imagine if Frank Lauria had Rosemary’s Baby…

  18. THX 1138 Says:

    Imagine if Frank Lauria imagined he was as popular as Ira Levin…

  19. Tat Wood Says:

    Imagine if Destiny’s Child had Twins

  20. JuanPaul Says:

    I’m trying to imagine that I never saw this cover.

  21. Chinese GSS Says:

    I’ve been looking for my Chinese daughter. I see you found Ling!

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I think this is the ultimate use of the “evil children” tag.

    It’s dumb and tacky and embossed, but not in a fun way. I really can’t come up with much in the way of analysis or snark.

    I give it a “meh”.

  23. Tat Wood Says:

    By the author of ‘Raga Six’ and, as Dead Stuff (3) points out, Bad Wolf Girl’s playing it like a sitar. Did this guy have a bad experience at a Ravi Shankar gig? Did he choke on a bhaji?

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat: yes, and to this day the memories send a Shiva down his spine. 😛

  25. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Actually, anything played with a children’s wooden flute is the TRUE evil music of Satan.
    (Anyone who has heard it knows what I mean.)

  26. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AR: have you ever heard pennywhistle? Imagine the wooden flute but with a tinny sound.

  27. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Imagine if editors could write good blurbs…
