Amusing? Frickin' hilarious more like!

Alestorm – Wenches And Mead

Taken from the album Captain Morgan’s Revenge (2008)

The very idea of Pirate Metal is amusing. Heavy use of the accordion in Metal is amusing. Just the song title “Wenches And Mead” is amusing and Alestorm are f*ckin’ hilarious and Wenches And Mead is a bone-fide party anthem for Metallers (pirates or otherwise).

Taking the fundamentals of a Metalhead’s often limited thoughts when under the influence of alcohol (normally women and more beer), Alestorm’s historically accurate(?) story of a pirate who desires nothing more than getting his grubby mitts on some fine wenches and consuming gallons of mead after “a mighty quest” is a rabble-rousing, bar-brawling, stomper of a track.

So saw off that leg you weren’t using, glue a parrot to your shoulder and try to find some Mead in your local supermarket, we set sail in the mornin’; aaarrgghhh!

S.O.D – Ballad Of Jimi Hendrix

Taken from the album Speak English Or Die (1985)

Got 5 seconds to spare? Listen to Crossover Thrash king’s S.O.D’s beautiful lament to Jimi Hendrix, respectfully entitled “Ballad Of Jimi Hendrix“. Ok, it’s not big, it’s not clever, its pretty offensive to fans of the late great Jimi Hendrix but it sure is amusing (sorry Jimi).

S.O.D purposefully courted controversy but their tongue in cheek brand of goofy humour was never really meant to offend (despite the nature of some of their more ‘colourful’ songs) and they pioneered the Crossover Thrash movement with the 22 warp-speed tracks found on Speak English Or Die.

Few would dare to be this politically incorrect in this day and age!

      Nice spot Ben! We were originally going to go with a choice title from ‘It Just Gets Worse’ and forgot to change it when we opted for ‘Picnic Of Love’ instead…..and you’re right, the whole of ‘Picnic Of Love’ is frickin’ hilarious! \m/

  3. I really really love Hello kitty from woods of trees. They are so good!!!!

  4. May I respectfully draw your attention to Jaldaboath’s “Bash The Bishop”, “Roland The Farter” and “Dex The Whispering Dwarf”? While I’m here, there’s also Conquest Of Steel’s “Fisting In The Name Of Metal”.

    You may Carl, and I thank you for it.

  6. Spazztic Blurr came to mind when I read the title of the article. Maybe their song “Mexacalli,” all about eating fast food? Then the Macabre Minstrels covering “Found a Peanut”…and of course Gwar for a little “Slaughterama”!
