Supercut: What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You An Unoriginal A-Hole

10.13.11 7 years ago

Slackstory nails it in the intro to their new viral supercut:

In 1888, German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche coined a phrase that would inspire lazy musicians for more than 100 years.

It shouldn’t be news to anyone that musicians are unoriginal or that cliched phrases are the backbone of popular music, but man, having the number of “artists” laid out in front of you who have over the years copped out on regret, guilt, and humiliation by clinging to Nietzsche’s words is kind of astounding. I guess what they’re all trying to tell me is that time I got drunk and fell down a stairwell was a confidence-building experience and not a huge moronic mistake.
