RELEASE: 600-Years-Old Butt Song from Hell Transcribed via Tumblr from Hieronymus Bosch's 'The Garden of Earthly Delights' Painting, Damnation Is Nigh

It was perhaps written in Dante's Inferno--or wait, maybe the Bible.

Actually, you know what? I don't think you could find it anywhere other than Hieronymus Bosch's painting The Garden of Earthly Delights.

I am, of course, talking about the newly transcribed "600-year-old butt song from hell" that has taken to the internet like a cheetah to a sleeping gazelle.

It's rumored that Bosch's "butt song" in the key of C is a chant and arrangement that opens the proverbial gates of hell, which undoubtedly, unleashes Satan and his battalion of pranksters for the rest of days (ya know, if you believe in that stuff).

It's a redundancy, though, as any posterior could already be called "the gates of hell."

Tumblr user ChaosControlled123 (or CHAOSKAMPF, depending on your source) is, apparently, the first in the world to transcribe the sheet music from the painting to a recorded medium.

You can hear the playback here.

So, if you're aren't too chicken to summon the demons of hell in your household, maybe you should compose your own lyrics to accompany the melodic intricacies of the "600-year-old butt song from hell."
