Live from Hell [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bret Adams
Outrageous rock & roll comedian Sam Kinison's Live From Hell was released in 1993, one year after he was killed by a drunk driver in a car crash. Recorded in Houston, TX, Live From Hell tackles a variety of topics including television, politics, and music, but Kinison still manages to insert plenty of comments about sex and relationships. Kinison talks about his semi-infamous showbiz gaffe on "I Missed the Joan Rivers Show," but he rightfully argues that his irresponsibility pales in comparison to Rick James' disturbing cocaine, sex, and kidnapping case; Billy Preston's sex scandal; and W. Axl Rose's riot-causing concert behavior. The title of "Execution for Pee Wee" ...

Outrageous rock & roll comedian Sam Kinison's Live From Hell was released in 1993, one year after he was killed by a drunk driver in a car crash. Recorded in Houston, TX, Live From Hell tackles a variety of topics including television, politics, and music, but Kinison still manages to insert plenty of comments about sex and relationships. Kinison talks about his semi-infamous showbiz gaffe on "I Missed the Joan Rivers Show," but he rightfully argues that his irresponsibility pales in comparison to Rick James' disturbing cocaine, sex, and kidnapping case; Billy Preston's sex scandal; and W. Axl Rose's riot-causing concert behavior. The title of "Execution for Pee Wee" alone indicates Kinison's thoughts on Pee Wee Herman's notorious masturbation arrest. "Captain Kangaroo" is Kinison's hysterical take on how Bob Keeshan possibly feels trapped after a decades-long stint as the beloved children's television show host, and he also suggests a revamped, X-rated definition of the CBS acronym. On "J.F.K.," Kinison talks about how his favorite president must have felt as the most powerful man in the world with Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, and Angie Dickinson among his lovers, but of course, he says it in a much funnier, off-color way. Kinison gets jingoistic on several Persian Gulf War-related bits, especially "The Smart Bomb" and "100 Hour War." By far the funniest segment is "The Pee Trough," which features Kinison railing against the indignity of urinals in general and making fun of a groaning old man who physically has trouble urinating. "Rap Sucks" is self-explanatory; Kinison blasts the talent-impaired 2 Live Crew while standing up for the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Allman Brothers Band, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, and the Eagles. The sexually graphic "Bad Taste" and "Don't Swallow" continue Kinison's penchant for humorous vulgarity.

    Long Live Sammy

    He's at home in Houston, and at his finest. I'm amazed the small comedy club they are in for this wasn't destroyed he gets the crowd so riled and crazy... absolutely brilliant comedy---but not for those who take offense to homsexuality or swearing easily... :-)
