Wow, I can't believe there isn't a topic for this already! (Don't worry, I looked O-) )

Well, I thought I should start this topic because
a) it's a great song; B) there's not already a topic for it (as far as the indexes here go); and c)on a slightly smeller note, if someone could answer a question I have about it B)


How exactly would one put the last, um, what would you call them?, um, like those babbling-drooling-gragling-kinda line at the end, yeah, let's call it that...oh, yeah, how would one put that into text, like how would you put it into words? If anyone has any ideas, well, uh, you know what to do 8)

:P

I love that song!!!!!!! When he played it on the Tomorrow Show with Tom Synder that was put on the DVD (The New One Music Videos, You Know What I Mean) It was so cool!!!!!!!

I like the song. It shows a good example of how talented Al was back then even without the support of the full band he has now.

Yeah...in my opinion, it sounded better when he did it on the Tom Snyder show because Jon had the various blowing instruments in his face and Al had that weird-metal-sproingy-not-sure-how-to-describe-it thing, but I like the Dr. Demento Show version better in general for the nostalgic kind of historic purposes. ;)

Yeah. Good way of putting it, Jeffery.

I like this song. It's definently an Al classic.

I was wondering how many versions of this song were released. Is the album version the same as the one on the Dr. Demento show? What about the Placebo EP version?

There's been just one released version. The live recording from the "Dr. Demento Show" was the same one used for the EP, the TK single, and the debut album.
