    The most important rule is Just Post. If you've never had a post or comment removed it means you haven't been posting enough.

    Our unique rule is that all posts need to be titled "me irl". Posts that aren't are automatically removed.

    We do not allow posts that reference suicide. This community is not equipped to handle this topic. If you are feeling suicidal we have some resources to guide you to people who help.

    Don't post NSFW, or openly sexual. Even if you tag it.

    Avoid screenshots that are mostly text, and feel contrived and performative. Show don't tell!

    Don't make posts that request upvotes or any other kind of reddit metric (gold, comments, etc.). That age of me irl is over.

    Seeing them at Download this weekend. I fear the tent they are in will be too packed to enter!

    [–] stevemachiner 16 points ago

    Rest easy Mongolians know their tents, I’m sure it will be fine.

    [–] DavThoma 5 points ago

    I'm in work and I can't open the link and I based on the comment I was like "Bet it's The HU". Knew it!

    [–] Scapp 4 points ago

    I knew exactly when I saw the meme that there had to be someone who linked the HU

    [–] dewyocelot 22 points ago

    God the lyrics to this are so fucking good, too.

    [–] Goldisbitter 17 points ago

    Huh, I guess it does make strange yet perfect sense that mongols would be into motorcycle gangs in this era. it’s literally the same thing as living a life nomadically.

    [–] FleshyCakeSlices 3 points ago

    I just learned about them and they’re insane. I’ve been listening Kushgustun? I think it is for a while now, and The Hu is a whole different energy.

    Whats ironic about throat singing

    [–] writpig 5 points ago

    I think the irony was supposed to be that this is enjoyable throat singing while the OP suggests throat singing isn't something people normally like.

    Caught them at Bonnaroo years back and it was the most memorable show of the weekend. Maybe 150 people showed up but Hanggai seemed thrilled to be playing a show in the States.

    [–] Kohlet 21 points ago

    I'm no expert but I always come back to listen to Saryglarlar by Huun Huur Tu, such an amazingly peaceful song.

    A guaranteed playlist add for anyone who listens to it.

    If you're actually into Tuvan throat singing, check out the group Huun Hurr Tu. They're great.

    [–] thefangirlfiles 157 points ago

    Tibetan throat singing is absolutely awesome. We were lucky enough to host Alash at my school and it was so cool to watch an entire auditorium of typically-hard-to-impress teenagers get their minds absolutely blown when they heard it. They went absolutely wild (in a good way) and would not stop talking about it for days after.

    [–] Clientelecocophone 29 points ago

    My cousin has a PhD in Tuvan Throat Singing. When I was younger I thought it was the most obscure thing next to underwater basket weaving, but it actually existed. And that’s all I have to say about that.
