Babbling Babette from Tulsa OkWell two years ago me & my BF, Catfish, found this record in my Dad's record collection in the attic. We got Mom's old record player and played it over and over. What a bizarre song! Catfish loves it though. He claimed the phrase "balls to the wall" is about boys in the lockerroom showing off their tools. I asked Dad and he said that's ridiculous and wrong. Dad claims it's an old line from airline pilots shoving the hand-controls (with the round balls on top of the levers) all the way to the wall to elevate the airplane. But I prefer Catfish's explanation cause it's raunchier and funnier. Yeahhh! Let 'em all hang out!

Jason from Denver, CoTo jeff in Boulder,CO. REAL metal singers are not supposed to be or sound pretty!
Jeff from Boulder, CoThis song may be a candidate for the Worst Song in Metal History, and the lead singer looked like a 5' down sydrome child.
