Want to hear the world's longest pop song? Want to make it EVEN LONGER?

The 1990s gave the world President Clinton, Twin Peaks, Harry Potter, and a Chris Butler tune called "The Devil Glitch," crowned by the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest pop song ever recorded. (69 minutes, yo.)

And now this decade gives us The Major Glitch: an online collaborative effort to make the song even freakin' longer.

The song's available, for listening and augmenting, at Major Glitch Dot Net. Chris Butler explains just what possessed compelled him to do this in this interview.

Remember the pattern: "Sometimes you can fix something by just," followed by whatever the heck you can fit in. (Butler wrote such lines as "Sometimes you can fix something by just being against being against the establishment of the church/ Antidisestablishmentarianism" and "Sometimes you can't fix something by just playing pinball/ Though Tommy's such a stupid album...")
