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”

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
