The emo band Ogbert The Nerd have secured the Bandcamp domain name for Taylor Swift, and have posted their own screamo music onto it. 

The New Jersey group have managed to obtain use of the URL taylorswift.bandcamp.com, and the first post on the page is a blistering 62-second track named ‘Taylor Swift 1’. 

The band’s frontman Madison James posted on X on Thursday (April 25), “ok secured the url, who’s starting a screamo band with me”.

In a similarly entrepreneurial move, James has also secured the equivalent Bandcamp page under the My Chemical Romance name, where he has posted a few musical selections, including a 2023 album under the name Quartz Morrigan, with the title ‘www dot the quartz’. 

Taylor Swift’s all-conquering grip on the music industry apparently does not include Bandcamp, although her new album ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ did become the most-streamed album in one day, and has now gone in at Number One in the UK with the biggest opening week in seven years.

Even Monica Lewinsky has jumped on the Swift bandwagon, using a widespread meme involving a line from her song ‘Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?’. Lewinsky posted the line, “You wouldn’t last an hour in the asylum where they raised me” alongside a photograph of the White House, referencing her infamous sex scandal with Bill Clinton. 

In a three-star review of ‘The Tortured Poets Department’NME wrote: “Swift seems to be in tireless pursuit for superstardom, yet the negative public opinion it can come with irks her, and it’s a tired theme now plaguing her discography and leaving little room for the poignant lyrical observations she excels at.” 

“It’s why the pitfalls that mire her 11th studio album are all the more disappointing — she’s proven time and time again she can do better. To a Melbourne audience of her Eras Tour, Swift said that ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ came from a “need” to write. It’s just that maybe we didn’t need to hear it.” 

The pop star is due to begin the European and UK/Ireland leg of her huge career-spanning tour in Paris on May 9, and is due to play eight sold-out concerts in London with Paramore
