And flying is fearful of me!

226. Mclusky - "Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues" (Too Pure, 2001)

Mclusky is the rock band of the 00s, for me. No one had better lyrics, no one rocked as hard, no one had better song titles, no one was even close. This is the opening salvo to their masterpiece Mclusky Do Dallas and is, I think, a pretty wonderful introduction to the humor and riffage that make them the best. The lyrics are a bunch of more or less unrelated images, but they're all great, and even greater as delivered by Andy Falkous. And then the third verse is same as the first but barreling completely off the tracks. The ending sounds like the band is rushing it because they can't possibly keep it up for another few seconds. Get everything this band ever put out.
