So begins the Butthole Surfers' first song on their first record, a tune that paid tribute to and killed American hardcore once and for all while single-handedly ushering in a new Post-Everything era. Over the course of the next 20 minutes listeners hear the band raving about a Bar-B-Q Pope and the revenge of Anus Presley, thoughts of suicide, and eating cheese and rice. There's even a three-minute pop song ("Hey"), just to confuse matters more.

Reviews:

''Butthole Surfers/Live PCPPEP'' is the third compilation album by American punk band Butthole Surfers, released in January 2003. All songs were written by the Butthole Surfers.

This compilation contains the entirety of the band's first studio EP, ''Butthole Surfers'', and its first live EP, ''Live PCPPEP'', neither of which had previously been available in CD format. The live songs were recorded at The Meridian in San Antonio, Texas on March 25, 1984. Both releases were originally published by Alternative Tentacles. Vinyl records of ''Butthole Surfers'' are still available from that label, under the name ''Brown Reason to Live''.

The album also contains four bonus tracks (15-18). Two of them, "Gary Floyd" and "Matchstick," are live songs from the ''Live PCPPEP'' concert. The third bonus track, "Sinister Crayon," was previously only available on the double-LP version of the compilation ''Humpty Dumpty LSD''. "Something" is an early demo, which was also released on the compilation ''The Hole Truth... and Nothing Butt''.

The CD's label features a reproduction of the "Pee Pee the Sailor" cartoon that had appeared on Alternative Tentacles' vinyl printings of ''Butthole Surfers''. It also reprints that record's erroneous suggestion that listeners play the disc at "69 RPM," a joke referencing the famous sex position. - Wikipedia
