Today marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of the first McDonald's restaurant, and to commemorate this momentous occasion, we offer you highlights from The Hamburglers' brilliant on-line album, "Happy Meal." The anonymous beat-burglers remix music and dialogue from a '70s publicity campaign:

"Krokrock": McDonald's chairman Ray Krok on lead vocals.
"So Now You Know, So Thank You" hip djs: spin this.
"We Want A New Theme": music sounds like The Captain and Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together;" Krok says, "We're dead!" And he is.
"Straight Jackin'": Ronald goes gangsta; samples from "JD's Gafflin'" from an Ice Cube album.
"Dildonald": obliterates the sources into pure abstract glitch.

Brilliant! Man this kicks butt all over "The Grey Album."
