Asshole

Dennis Leary



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This novelty song is about a man who wants to have thrills at the expense of others, and doesn't care what other people think about it. The chorus is often heard on The Howard Stern Show.
This song samples Dolly Parton's "Old Flame (Can't Hold A Candle to You)."
The song reached #37 on MuchMusic's "50 Most Controversial Videos Of All Time" for its profanity, making fun of handicapped people, and threatening to destroy the environment. (thanks, Landon - Winchester, OH, for all above)
