42 (stylized as "ᄅᔭ") is Dr. Failure's 8th Noise Single and second Music Video. From August 11, 2019 to September 19, 2019, Dr. Failure compiled several clips of dark web clips to form 11 minutes of visuals, then he recorded and processed a noise single (ᄅᔭ) to use as the sound for the video, then he uploaded the video to YouTube and published the track on Bandcamp.

ᄅᔭ comes from the album happythoughts. The usage of the number 42 refers to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy where 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything; Dr. Failure however uses the upside down stylization to represent the antonym of life: death.
