You Suffer – Shortest Ever Recorded Song

At precisely 1.319 seconds long, “You Suffer” by British band Napalm Death has been officially recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the shortest recorded song ever. The song only consists the lyrics "You suffer – but why?”

The track, originally recorded in March 1986, was featured on the band’s 1986 album Scum.

The song’s music video was released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of the record, and is probably the shortest music video to be ever made.
