Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

Cover/Parody/Mashup/Goofy Concept Edition!

Sad Kermit – “Hurt”

In which, er, Kermit the Frog sings the jaunty Nine Inch Nails number covered to great effect by Johnny Cash. Probably not safe for small children who believe Kermit doesn’t inject drugs

Jem vs. Le Tigre – “Deceptacon”

In which the post-punk trio are reimagined as a certain truly outrageous cartoon band

It’s Raining 300 Men

In which the buried homoeroticism in a recent film is, erm, elucidated

Eurythmics vs. Donna Summer – “I Feel Love is a Stranger”

In which the late 70s and early 80s are brought together at last. Worth it if only for the footage of vintage synths

Alanis Morissette – “My Humps”

I know you’ve already seen this, but still, watch it again, you know you want to

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
