SCP: Apollo's Boombox

Item Class: Keter (Former Euclid)

Original Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is to be kept in a 10m X 10m X 10m room, constructed around around the area at which SCP was discovered. The building at which SCP-XXXX-1 was discovered has been purchased by a Foundation front company and has since been condemned.

Special Containment Procedures (Revised): SCP-XXXX-1 is to be kept in a 50m X 50m X50m room, constructed around the area at which SCP was discovered. The building at which SCP-XXXX-1 was discovered, as well as the adjacent buildings, have been purchased by a Foundation front company and have since been condemned.

All D-Class involved in a Junction Event are to be fitted with an electro-shock collar. If the D-Class attempts to damage SCP-XXXX-1, the collar is to be activated immediately to prevent SCP-XXXX-1 from entering its defensive mode.

If SCP-1 enters its defensive mode, appropriate action is to be taken depending on which track SCP-XXXX-1 chooses to play. Authorized personnel should refer to document Griever 4/XXXX for specific containment and damage control procedures.

If a way to transport SCP-XXXX-1 without activating its defensive mode is determined, SCP-XXXX-1 is to be moved to Site-██.

Continued testing of SCP-2's effects is forbidden.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a battery-operated portable radio/CD player manufactured by ██████ in 19██. SCP-XXXX-1 contains no batteries and does not require them to function.

Approximately once every thrity (30) days, SCP-XXXX-1 begins to play a randomly chosen song. The song will loop continuously until the next song is chosen. All songs chosen so far have adhered to the following criteria:

All songs have been in English
All songs have been between one minute thirty-two seconds long and eighty minutes six seconds.
No instrumental songs have been chosen. This is no longer true as of ██████. See Classified Document Edea 4/XXXX

If a human being, hereafter referred to as the subject, enters a spherical area 6.00 23.74m in diameter around SCP-XXXX-1, they are changed according to the title of the song that SCP-XXXX-1 is currently playing. This most often includes changes in physical qualities of the subject, but also rarely manifest as hallucinations experienced by the subject. The subject's body will continue to function normally even if part of their body is mutated to an inorganic material. The lyrics or content of the actual song do not seem to determine the changes experienced by the subject under usual circumstances.

If a living subject is not within the range of SCP-XXXX-1's effect for two (2) full plays of the current song, SCP-XXXX-1 will begin to play a song from SCP-XXXX-2, while the radius of SCP-XXXX-1's effect increases at an exponential rate.

In order to prevent SCP-XXXX-1's effect range from increasing, a living subject must be kept within SCP-XXXX-1's effect range to prevent its range from expanding. This is referred to as a Junction Effect.

Notable Testing Log:

Pictures Of You – The Last Goodnight: Subject was tattooed with images of their own face, which covered ninety percent of their body.

Mirrors – Justin Timberlake: The subject's skin became highly reflective and stiff. Once the entire surface of subjects body was mutated, the subject was unable to move. The subject fell over and shattered. Subject soon passed away due to exsanguination.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a Compact Disc (CD) inside of SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-2 is identical to a blank CD, with the exception that “Favies ♥ ” is written on the front in what appears to be black marker. According to documents found at the recovery site, SCP-XXXX-2 consists of ten (10) tracks. However, it has been discovered that SCP-XXXX-2 consists of eleven (11) tracks.

If SCP-XXXX-1 is threatened by a human being, either overtly or subtly, it will enter its defensive mode. SCP-XXXX-2 will stop playing its current song and switch to a random song stored on SCP-XXXX-2.

Cancer – Causes development of stage 2 tumors upon subject's body.

Less Than Three – All trace elements that make up less than three percent of elements in the subject's body dissapear.

Totally Boneless!!! - Subject's skeletal system dissapears.

The eleventh track consists of the buzzing noise of the Cicadidae Megapomponia, a large class of Cicada. When a subject enters the range of SCP-XXXX-1's effect while the eleventh track is playing, the subject becomes obsessed with the track, claiming that it is the greatest song they've ever heard. Subjects will [DATA EXPUNGED] in an attempt to increase their hearing, which leads to death via trauma or exsanguination.

The tenth track causes a unique hallucinatory effect on subjects. Subjects claim to see a vaguely humanoid figure that refers to itself as “Apollo”. The figure commands subjects to “prove their worth”. Subjects are immediately attacked by a force that is not able to be seen by outside observers. To date, only a single subject has survived this event.
