Overview

If the Eagles of Death Metal were even less capable of keeping a straight face, or if the Adult Swim cartoon Metalocalypse ever wanted to record a real-world album equivalent to Danger Doom's The Mouse and the Mask, the results would undoubtedly be quite similar to Dirty Rig's second album. Unapologetically goofy and juvenile lyrics ("the ruling class is puking up all over you" is one of the many priceless lines, this one from the title track) are set to good-humored metal riffs that are beholden to no particular subgenre. Bits of old-school metal from Lynyrd Skynyrd's Southern-fried boogie to Motörhead's proto-hardcore can be heard here, but originality isn't really the point. (Everyone from R. Stevie Moore to April Wine has already done the "If You See Kay" joke, but it's always good for a junior-high snigger.) Dirty Rig call their style "beer metal", and it's hard to imagine a more descriptive term for Rock Did It. It's music for the high school hesher who lives inside us all.
