The Escaped Fetal Pigs - "Hatebomb"


This is from the tv show Musical Mayhem.  Jimmie Frederick taped the show at The Good Tymes Pub in Bowling Green, Ohio USA in the Fall of 1991.  This song was one of the later Pigs songs when we started to morph from comedy rock to music that was a bit more serious as well as aggressive (we were listening to a lot of Slayer and hardcore punk if I remember correctly).  This song is still pretty humorous though, well, as humorous as explosives go.  It was inspired by one of my old managers at K-Mart, who used to put on a disguise and go spy on another store, Fisher's Big Wheel, that was a block over.  In the song, two rival store managers start a real price war between their two stores and start engaging in combat, culminating in each sending bombs to one another.

By the way, I worked for K-Mart, but Fisher's Big Wheel had a better music selection since they carried The Dead Milkmen.
