I love Trigger happy. My wifes uncle is one of those gun nuts and this song reminds me of him. The song was around before I met him but still. I have some guns and am for gun rights, but even I think that we should keep guns away from nuts if you know what I mean.

Yes, there is already a topic for Trigger Happy that I was able to locate thanks to my Topics Listed by Albums topic :F

I would have to agree with Bermuda on this one. Trigger Happy is simply a funny song. While it may express Al's view on gun control (or it may not), I tend to believe that Al intended it to get laughs from both sides. People who believe in gun control can find it funny, as can people who don't.

I read somwhere that Trigger Happy was a style parody based on all Beach music, not just the Beach Boys. After all, Frankie Avalon, Jan and Dean and others were all i the same genre. I like it also, but it's not as good as.........



















AAAAAAAAAAALbuquerque!!!!

It's funny that Al mentioned Jan & Dean... I don't hear much of that in "Trigger Happy" (there's that bit in "Everything You Know Is Wrong" that sounds much more like non-Beach Boys surf music to me, but I'm no musician). But "Trigger Happy" is Beach Boysian enough to make Brian Wilson green with envy. :lol:

I think its a great song, and really one of my favorites..
Did a little translation work on this song. translated it to hebrew. (i also did albuquerque)
It was great...

I definitely hear the "Back in the USSR" influence you mention. Of course, that song is a style parody of the Beach Boys, so it makes sense.

Welcome aboard!
