Mating Season

This would totally be high up in my photo countdown if it weren’t a picture my Mom took…

The air may be full of the same old shitty holiday tunes you usually have to tolerate this time of the year.  But not at The Nest, where we pull the plug on Burl, Bing and those goddamned chipmunks and trot out the really cray-cray muzak… the kind of stuff we’re honoring each week in our Top 30 Novelty Songs of All Time countdown!  DJ Scratchy is ready to get it on in more ways than one this week, while the Sponkies will be kept occupied watching an old nature documentary narrated by some guy with a British accent on safari.  Yes, this week’s post can be considered educational…

#4. “The Bad Touch” – Bloodhound Gang

The Bloodhound Gang is a rather interesting multi-genre outfit that has been around since 1988 and has a rather checkered and colorful past…. pissing off lots of different people, groups and even entire countries with their antics.  You don’t care about all that, though, and I’m trying to type with a painful semi-infected finger… so we’ll just cut straight to the chase and give you the good stuff.

Not this good stuff…

In 1999, the band recorded an album with the epic title Hooray For Boobies.  It was released in the US on Leap Day 2000, making the album technically only four years old… and its lead single is the one song we remember these bad boys of alternative for.  It’s time to learn a little bit about procreation…

I included a version with the lyrics written out so you can further appreciate the fast paced double entendres in this filthy masterpiece that will make sure that you know that this is a song about SEX.

You know, just like The Lion King was…

There have been a lot of songs in the past that like to see how many naughty phrases they can sneak by the censors, but what has made “The Bad Touch” a song that is still remembered today despite never being a Top 40 hit in the US (It only reached #52) is that chorus, which is fucking epic and sticks in your head.

You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on The Discovery Channel

Now this IS one of my photos, but the humping squirrels are so much better.

What a brilliant reference, and this song is still called The Discovery Channel song by people who have no idea what its name is actually supposed to be.  One might think a channel that earned its reputation as being “educational” might object to being associated with a raunchy song such as “Bad Touch,” but like every other cable channel we came to know and love in the 20th century, Discovery has gone all shitty reality all the shitty time and now airs family friendly content like this….

Look! It’s Jumping The Shark Week!

I shall be back next Monday with my third favorite novelty song of all time!

  1. we totally loved this song… all danced and tried to sing a long… even those who had no clue what they were singing ;O)))))

  2. One word…….WOW.


  3. Oh my. Well, the lyrics may be x-rated but the beat is nice and snappy. Happy Monday.

  4. They had me at “Waffle House hash browns.” That was catchy and fun. Now I’ve got my ear worm for today. I’ve never heard this one before. Thanks for not just featuring the obvious songs.

    • I tried to make the selection in this countdown as eclectic as possible… what’s the fun if there’s no surprised. That said, next week’s song is very obvious (I pity anyone who hasn’t heard it before), #2 will be out of nowhere, and #1….. well, I’m shutting up now.

    Monty Python’s “Always look at the bright side of life”?

    Or this one:

    And here is the lumberjack song:

    It’s very catchy! They’ve upset a lot of people, you say. Go figure!

    • They have supposedly urinated on a few countries’ flags on stage before… nothing that should get the higher ups too upset at them or anything. I think it was the Russians who nearly threw the band in jail…

  8. Trisha says:

    Gary seems to like this song. He followed me around while it was playing on my tablet. Maybe it reminds him of the six years he ran around unneutered!

    • If someone neutered me I’m not sure I would want to be reminded of the good old days like that. There’s a reason I had Buster leap off the shelf to his doom after Mitzi crushed his nuts…
