Filthy and Fried

Album: American Band (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This resigned observation of how moral decay has become one area where gender equality reigns was originally not going to be included on American Band. Co-vocalist Mike Cooley explained to The Boot:

    "I wrote 'Filthy and Fried' and we were considering making it an outtake because we really wanted the whole thing to fit on one LP. We like the lean, concise approach to this, but once we had that track, we realized everything we had needed to be part of it."
