Lou Reed Wants You To Buy His $400 Earbuds

Can you even imagine Lou Reed wearing earbuds?

Trent Reznor and El-P’s Flyentology? Both dudes are cypercreeps. Song is good.

So that brings us to the Lou Reed, and Metallica’s upcoming album Lulu that drops November 1st, on Warner Brothers. Continue reading
