50 Kids Board Subway Playing Recorders, Bringing Every New Yorker's Worst Nightmare To Life

There are few injustices as traumatizing as bad subway karma. Whether you get stuck next to a drooling napper or a ravenous leftover casserole muncher, we can think of only a handful of daily experiences that incite such feelings of rage and powerlessness as being trapped in a moving vehicle, underground, against your will.

On that note, our deepest condolences go out to the riders of a certain Manhattan bound N train that departed earlier this morning, and was so cruelly infiltrated by an entourage of 50 kids and their recorders. The little ones then proceeded to blast out squeaky, high-pitched notes, in tandem, for the next 40 minutes, according to Gothamist. For all of you who wished you'd never hear those dreadful instruments again after your middle school graduation day, we're sorry.

See the nightmarish hot mess -- or the most avant-garde, improvisational concert ever? -- above.
