Nope, not Nirvana. But a damn great holiday parody of one of my favorite songs by Nirvana, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Just read along with the captions, and I hope you laugh as hard as I did. I love the parody’s album cover… the little bow is too cute.

Just read along with the music.

Thanks, Motley News

    Har.

  2. Post #2- bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    I hope that lead singer still has his vocal cords.

    Could have done more with the song–no reason to repeat the lyrics, should have continued the theme. I immediately started humming:

    “Tis the season, to be grateful
    All my friends now, cant afford it
    Lost their jobs Now, Oh Noooo
    Ho, ho, ho, ho.

    Still a great song. Too bad Kurt couldn’t focus more on his love of music. We have all demons that drive us. Mostly small but some of us have large ones.

    Buddhists.

    Next verse.

    Stupid congress playing games now.
    Mr. Bohner won’t extend now.
    So my taxes will expand now.
    stupid congress.
    stupid congress.
    stupid congress.
    yea.

    We all have our demons to struggle with, lately though if you are conscientious the demons may appear to be winning. It’s just the FUD. Don’t let the FUD get you down. Always look on the bright side of life.

      Ahh. Monty Python…

      Some things in life are bad
      They can really make you mad
      Other things just make you swear and curse.
      When you’re chewing on life’s gristle
      Don’t grumble, give a whistle
      And this’ll help things turn out for the best…

      And…always look on the bright side of life…
      Always look on the light side of life…

      If life seems jolly rotten
      There’s something you’ve forgotten
      And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
      When you’re feeling in the dumps
      Don’t be silly chumps
      Just purse your lips and whistle – that’s the thing.

      And…always look on the bright side of life…
      Always look on the light side of life…

      For life is quite absurd
      And death’s the final word
      You must always face the curtain with a bow.
      Forget about your sin – give the audience a grin
      Enjoy it – it’s your last chance anyhow.

      So always look on the bright side of death
      Just before you draw your terminal breath

      Life’s a piece of shit
      When you look at it
      Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true.
      You’ll see it’s all a show
      Keep ‘em laughing as you go
      Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

      And always look on the bright side of life…
      Always look on the right side of life…
      (Come on guys, cheer up!)
      Always look on the bright side of life…
      Always look on the bright side of life…
      (Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
      Always look on the bright side of life…
      (I mean – what have you got to lose?)
      (You know, you come from nothing – you’re going back to nothing.
      What have you lost? Nothing!)
      Always look on the right side of life…

  4. Me and the sisters were out doing our Christmas shoplifting today and we were completely amazed at the discourteous driving that we witnessed around the Tyson’s Corner, Virginia area. Don’t these cocksuckers know that it’s that fucking time of year where you are suppose to be nice to others? I almost wore out my middle finger! We had lunch at the Capital Grille and we watched this stupid prick get his Maserati valet parked – we knew right away he didn’t have a dick. Damn, we’re all cheerful and shit.

    • Dallas says:

      Are you done with shoplifting? This time of year is both stressful and joyous.

  5. McCullough says:

    Best parody of this tune…..Weird Al.

    jus sayin.

  6. Glenn E. says:

    Back in the early days of 16bit computers, I had a MOD file of this tune (minus the lyrics) from England. Never knew for years that it even had words to it, until Weird Al altered it. I’d say he vastly improved it. As he did many a rock tune. Even the original tunes I do like, I also keep the WA versions of. All I can say about Nirvana is, why must it be shouted?!! How many successful Beatles tunes can you name that were SHOUTED? “Help” doesn’t count.

  7. Glenn E. says:

    Twas the day before winter, and all through the midwest,

    Not a creature was stirring, buried in snow up to their vest.

    All the stockings were damp, from the shoveler’s hard work,

    As they considered Global Warming alarmists to be such jerks.

    When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

    as a careless snowplow sent SUVs all ascatter.

    With a little old driver, so snowblinded and hope-less,

    I wondered if he were on dope? The ass. (I admit to losing my edge now)

    …. and then some more clever verses as to how winter has started a day or two early, with a vengeance, in the mid US. I think some consented theory is officially death, after this winter. Al Gore needs to write a new book, to take advantage of it. He’s like a Kevin Trudeau, of climate change.

    • msbpodcast says:

      Is the snow that much worse. I doubt it.

      Is it heavier (more moisture laden)?

      That’s global warming.

      It not even going to get cold until February.

      I come from Ottawa, Ontario in Canada. You guys don’t know from cold (except for some Alaskan No Agenda listeners.)

      I still laugh at Virginia drivers who freak out at a single inch of snow and run their cars into ditches and phone poles.

  8. Hi guys, I just posted a new Christmas song. It has very adult lyrics, so consider yourself warned. :-) And as you can hear our lead singer’s voice is still in tact.
