Get the Bardcore mug.
A musical genre involving having modern songs reverse engineered to sound more medieval, primarily by replacing the sounds of modern instruments with those that existed in the middle ages. If the song contains English lyrics, the words might be altered to sound more like Shakespearean English. All of this is to make it sound as if the song could've been sung by a bard} in a medieval tavern somewhere, hence the name 'Bardcore'.
