Every morning, for an indeterminate period of time, an almost sinister soundtrack fills the streets of Pyongyang. Nobody seems to know the name of the song or the exact reason why it’s played every day, but everyone seems to be in agreement about how goddamn unsettling it would be to hear this horror movie music on the way to work. According to Wikipedia—perhaps the least reliable source of information on North Korea—the song is called “Ten Million Human Bombs for Kim Il Sung.” An alternate translation might be “Ten Million Will Become Human Bombs.” Either way, the song is dark as fuck.

This is weirder than his missle parades....LOL  WTF.

lol...they probably play that music to try and drown out the propaganda speeches along with the Rock-n-Roll played by the South all the time... unfortunately for NK, after playing that music for 4 hours, they use up all the electric the Chinese allow them in one day...  ;D

Then again, they would probably cause riots in NK if they put a McD's right on the DMZ...the poor starving bastards would risk dying for a chicken nugget!  :o  The smell would drive them insane for sure!

How about these Army parade songs!
