The Arrogant Worms

Arrogant Worms AlbumWhy have I never heard of these guys before? I’m feeling very cheated.

Shadaughter just introduced me to Carrot Juice is Murder, with a catchy tune and splendid lyrics:

Chorus:
I’ve heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (having their insides revealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (burning off calories)
How do you think that feels (bet it hurts really bad)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (and that’s a real crime)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (let my vegetables go)
It’s time to stop all this gardening (it’s dirty as hell)
Let’s call a spade a spade (is a spade is a spade is a spade)

So I looked them up and am annoyed to discover that they’ve been around for years* and have tons of music (also available on Amazon).

Many of their songs are amusingly dark without being morbid, like the Mime Abduction Song, Head in the Freezer, and History is Made by Stupid People. They’ve even got a Christmas album featuring songs like, Santa’s Gonna Kick Your Ass and Dad Threw Up On Christmas Day.

They’re a fun–and largely family-friendly, despite lyrics about screaming vegetables–addition to a playlist. Check ’em out!


*I was also late in discovering Jonathan Coulton, so I may just be novelty singer-impaired.
