The First Band In The History Of The Web Doesn't Sound That Bad

1990s girl group Les Horribles Cernettes got its photo published in a HTML page 20 years ago. It was the first photo in the history of the web, which makes them the first music band in the history of the web too. Here's how the song Collider sounds.

As it turns out, Les Horribles Cernettes -- a band name that plays with CERN and the initials of the Large Hadron Collider -- are not that bad if you are a fan of the sound of girl groups from the '50s. In any case, I like the tour of those old CERN facilities. And the love/physics lyrics too. Kind of. A little. On the inside. [Thanks Angel!]


    ow, my eyes!
    These girls need to get the band back together! This time with more innuendo! I need another exclamation!

    I don't care what they sound or look like, any music video with multiple supercomputers in a single shot is a winner for me. Love those classic Crays.

    Lol, I guess internet humour hasn't really come as far as we thought.
