Rock & Roll Juggernaut

Album: Rock & Roll Juggernaut (1986)

Songfacts®:

  • The Meatmen, who specialize in a strange form of raunch-rock, are an acquired taste. Those who have acquired that taste, however, tend to love this song, which the group's frontman Tesco Vee tells us exemplifies the band.

    "In the '80s we were kind of making fun of rock when we were playing rock, but we were kind of doing a parody of rock," he said. "I think that song kind of sums the Meatmen mantra 'Testosterone and funny bones, Meatboy Showband Revue,' and 'We drink bong water and bourbon cocktails, A righteous manly brew.' Just sort of encapsulates everything that the Meatmen are and stand for."
