image for Bob Dylan Music Introduced To Youth By Indie Artists Gets All Screwed Up!

According to a news release, a new project aimed to introduce Bob Dylan's music to young people by having buzz-worthy indie artists cover one of his best-known albums in a digital-only format has been quickly withdrawn and destroyed.

Apparently an Indian employee has totally misunderstood the word 'Indi' and has created an album that is totally beyond understanding.

"Subterranean Cowsick Blues: A Tribute to Bob Dylan's 'Bringing It All Back Home On A Train Carrying 700 People'" went on sale at Apple Inc.'s iTunes last Friday and was to feature artists like J. Tillman of Fleet Foxes; the Morning Blenders; Peter Moren of Peter, Bjorn and John; and Mirah tackling songs from Dylan's 1965 "going electric" album.

A producer, Jim Sampas, who has done similar tributes to Bruce Springsteen's "Nebraska" album and the Beatles' "Rubber Soul" has stated that this is the biggest piece of crap he's ever heard in his life.

"Jinn Singh should have known better. He will be fired immediately. He's brought in artists I've never heard of, and hope to never hear again."

The original Dylan album, a mixture of acoustic whine and electric toots, had suddenly included songs like "Abhimanya's Farm," "Hey, Mr. Sitar Man," "It's Alright, Ma (I'm Over Breeding)" and "Subterranean Cowsick Blues."

The former employee stated that the hardest part was blending sitar and harmonica.

"But the words sounded the same when mumbled in standard Hindi."
