We recently posted an unsettling and hilarious parody cover of Wet Leg’s 2021 hit “Chaise Longue” by a band calling themselves Moist Limb. Moist Limb’s version is titled “Black Throne” and comes with a video that remakes the “Chaise Longue” video in horror movie mode (hearts are eaten). “Throne Noir” translates to “Dark Throne”.

“Chaise Longue” was No. 1 on our list of the top 130 songs of 2021.
