Music Month: Three Little Pigs by Green Jelly

It's Monday. Time for some humor. So today's song is Three Little Pigs by Green Jelly. This was a hit actually. I missed it the first time since I was in college and not seeing much music videos which apparently is where it gained its popularity. But it is fun today, too. Maybe more so since this music style has lessened in popularity.

Here's the first few stanzas from the lyrics:

Why don't you sit right back and I
I may tell you a tale, a tale of 3
Little pigs and a big bad wolf

Well, the first little piggy
Well, he was kinda hick
He spent most of his days
Just day dreamin' of the city

And then one day he bought a guitar
He moved to Hollywood to become a star
But living on the farm he knew nothing of the city
Built his house outta straw, what a pity?

According to Wikipedia:

"Three Little Pigs" is a song by the comedy heavy metal band Green Jellÿ, from the album Cereal Killer Soundtrack, released by Zoo Entertainment in 1992.

The single was later re-released in 1993 under the name Green Jellÿ, due to a lawsuit. The song reached #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1993, and charted even higher in the UK, where it reached #5. The chart success can be partly attributed to the song's unique and heavily-aired music video. The song was ranked #35 on VH1's 40 Most Awesomely Bad Metal Songs...Ever.
