Blow Chunks Ballet: Legendary SongBy Lucky
Have A Listen, Dude!
Blow Chunks Ballet is a song most bands can only wish they had in their set list! Consistently rated as The Ass Clowns’ greatest song, Blow Chunks Ballet has become a drinking anthem for college students worldwide. Today, it’s hard to find a frat party that doesn’t have Blow Chunks Ballet blaring from the speakers at some point during the night with wasted students shouting the chorus at the top of their lungs. The legendary song, which front man Lars Gunblade composed in five minutes on the toilet, has many fans… and many detractors.
Since its appearance on the Ass Clowns’ debut CD “Behind The Times,” Blow Chunks Ballet has consistently been rated as one of the worst songs in rock and roll history by critics despite being wildly popular on Guitar Hero. Fans of the song aren’t hard to find. “It’s kind of great if you like that sort of thing,” said Buford Picklefeather of Perth Amboy, NJ. “It’s pretty up front about getting completely shit-faced. I can relate to that kind of honesty. Blow Chunks is the soundtrack of my life, which, like this CD, kind of belongs in the cut-out bin.”
WHAT THE BAND REMEMBERS ABOUT RECORDING “BLOW CHUNKS BALLET”
Lars Gunblade: “One night after doing half a dozen groupies, I spent hours recording myself throwing up to use in the background of the song. Yeah, I had my own blow chunks ballet, funny, right? When I played it back, I knew we had something special. The recording engineer later told me that our song introduced him to binge drinking. I was touched. I get a lump in my throat every time I think about it.”
Vas Defrens: “Primitive studio conditions, bad weed… it was rough. My guitar solo was truly awesome, though. I’m good. I’m really good!”
Carnage Smith: “Awesome. Just awesome. What song are we talking about?”
Joey Van Dundro: “There were a lot of naked chicks in the studio during the session. That was cool but it was kinda distracting. One chick was dry humping my bass drum and it didn’t sound right with her sweaty body all pressed against it. Great song if you like that sort of thing.”
