What are some good examples of metal songs that tried to get a laugh from the listener but totally f*cked up? Any notable ones?

What about songs that were meant to be serious but were funny as hell ?

I find Annihilator's "Never, Neverland" amusing. I know it's supposed to be dramatic, but the lyrics and the way the vocalist sings them just makes it a little corny to me.

Get back, back!
Just leave us all alone
Take that and that!

Japanese music often has some pretty hilarious english (or as we say, 'engrish') lyrics that are totally nonsensical or butchered in translation.

X Japan has just one example. The song "Stab Me in the Back" is entirely in english but horrible and laughable as a thrash metal type song:

Quote :
I'm having sex
Wishing for six
I'm having sex
Touch me, Make me feel

Knock me out Marry
Get me off Jane
Knock me off Marry
Pet me violently

Can't you give me more to the last?
I can't get enough Take me down

I'm on Junk
I'm getting high
I'm on Junk
Let me go mad

Kiss me off, vamp
Get away, tramp
Kiss me off, vamp
Leave me, Why don't you

Can't you give me more? Do or Die
I can't be satisfied

I can't take this life
Stab me in the back
I can't take my life
Stab me in the back

* * Wipe out my lofe "Bask in blood"
Dripping from your heart
Destroy this world "Drive me mad"
Don't need nothing in my life

Wipe out my life "Bask in blood"
Dripping from your heart
Destroy this world "Drive me mad"
O.D.on sex

*

Can't you give me more? Do or Die
I can't be satisfied

* *

Stab me in the back

I haven't heard the entire album yet, but judging from the video clips, I'd bet the entire Chris Holmes' solo album is one breathless giggle Wink

Most Annihilator songs.

Love the music, but the vocals and lyrics have always been pretty funny.

A band I seen on YouTube called Ravenheart. They have a song called "Hell on Earth" that is non-intentionally hilarious!

Yea, I'd have to agree with that one.

S.O.D.= hilarious
M.O.D. = not so much

Most of Mustaine's political stuff falls into the category of unintentionally hilarious.

I was listening to this CD on the way into work.
It came on as I pulled into the large company corporate parking lot.
I listen to music at a somewhat above average level -
I was like - whoa - and lowered the volume - while grinning !
