This could be the most profane album ever recorded. (Probably NSFW)

You have to admire the spunk of Britain’s Pocket Gods, a group that is doing their best to kick against the low payouts of streaming music services. Their specialty is releasing songs that are just over 30 seconds long.

Wait–why? Because once a strong plays for 30 seconds, you get your payout. The Pocket Gods believe that it’s therefore useless to write songs longer than what they’d get paid for.

The group has a series of records called 100×30, which are albums featuring 100 songs each of which are around 30 seconds long. Their latest is entitled 100xrated30, which is “the most explicit album ever made.”

According to the band, these 100 songs feature over 3,000 profanities. That makes even the most profane rapper sound like Raffi.

The album will be out on Friday. Meanwhile, you can enjoy a preview here. Beware because there are many, many bad words ahead.

    Hi Totty yes I heard of that album – we had the same problem on our first 100X30 we had to combine the last 2 songs onto 1 track as it’s physically impossible to have more than 99 separate tracks on a cd!
