Cookie Waits was created when it was noticed that “Tom Waits sometimes sounds eerily like Cookie Monster” and then the videos were made using clips of Cookie Monster (from Sesame Street), syncing them up so that it looks like Cookie Monster is singing Tom Waits‘ songs. The first Cookie Waits song, God’s Away On Business was featured on 10 March.
Hell Broke Luce is the 2nd Tom Waits song to get the Cookie Waits treatment and was originally on the album Bad As Me from 2011. The musicians used on the track include Keith Richards (Rolling Stones) on guitar and Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on bass.
WARNING: This song contains words that are generally considered to be unsuitable for children.
