Rossz Csillag Alatt Született (Hungarian pronunciation: [rosː tʃilːɒɡ ɒlɒtː sylɛtɛtː]) is a 2005 album by breakcore artist Venetian Snares, released on the Planet Mu label. Inspired by an earlier journey of Aaron Funk's to Hungary, the album title and all of the track names are in Hungarian; Rossz Csillag Alatt Született translates to "Born Under a Bad Star," a Hungarian expression which means "cursed from birth." Stylistically, the album consists of classical strings and brass combined with breakbeats. According to Tiny Mix Tapes, it ranked at #25 on the Top 25 Albums of 2005, as well as ranking #31 on Tiny Mix Tapes' Favorite 100 Albums of 2000-2009.
The concept of the album came when Aaron Funk imagined himself as a pigeon on Budapest's Királyi Palota (Royal Palace). Its third track, "Öngyilkos Vasárnap" is a cover of the song "Szomorú Vasárnap" ("Gloomy Sunday") by Hungarian composer Rezső Seress, which has been referred to as the Hungarian suicide song. According to urban legend, Seress's song has inspired the suicide of multiple people, including his fiancée. The song was reportedly banned in Hungary. It has also been covered by many artists. Billie Holiday's vocals are sampled in this track.
The album also samples various pieces of classical music:
The first movement of Béla Bartók's fourth string quartet, in track two.
