Good point. I don't think it's a big deal either.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

Slime Creatures did not have any bad words...

Though if you turn the volume all the way up at the end of that one, you'll hear "Who you gonna call? Slime creatures!"

I agree Jeremy. Although some parents don't like their children saying those words. I guess WHiZZi's jus trying to be safe or something.....

Well, I made a joke utilizing that word in the Greatest Hits Survivor topic and nobody said anything about it so I think it's ok.

One thing I've noticed about this song is that the Simpsons audio clip is normally cut in syndication. I wonder if Al intentionally got a clip that's usually cut in syndication.

I'm not sure. Maybe.

I remember I had heard that the clip was in the episode "Blood Fued", so when I saw it was TiVoed, I got really excited. Then I got upset when I saw it was cut, but I have it on DVD now, so it doesn't really matter anymore.

I was just wondering if anyone noticed this about the song. Okay, in the VERY last verse, when it fades out, turn your volume ALL THE WAY UP.

Never thought I'd ever hear Al say that...
Wow. I never noticed that before. I thought "Don't Download This Song" was the first time Al swore on the fade-out. I had to turn the volume all the way up on my earphones and bust my eardrums, but I heard it. It's definitely there.

And thank you, kevbo1987, for posting the transcript for what Moe said. I could never understand the ice pick line. I always thought he said, "I'm going to cough on you with an ice pick!" Which makes absolutely no sense.

I've got no problem with him saying it. Overall, it's still relatively clean and family friendly. Most musical comedians I've heard, are much more crude. Although, I can understand if someone was upset by it. But it is hard to hear.

I do like the song though. From what I've heard, not many people seem to like it.
That's what you get when you let your heart win.
