WARNING – some of the video clips in this article, and some of the websites behind the links, use quite coarse – even offensive – language. Please don’t press ‘play’ or visit the links if you think you wouldn’t like to hear that sort of thing.
One Brisbane band that’s done very well in the last few years is Butterfingers – see their myspace page and listen to four of their songs by clicking here. (To see the Butterfingers Wikipedia entry, click here).
Butterfingers play hip hop, but they don’t pretend to be gangsters and they have an irreverent Aussie attitude along with a warped sense of humour.
They are definitely a bit rude, but Butterfingers are very very funny. Their first single ‘Everytime’, was a hit a few years ago on alternative radio:
Everytime I skate, I get another bruise
Everytime I get drunk, I vomit on my shoes
Everytime I scratch, the needle jumps
Everytime I drink milk, it comes out in lumps
Everytime I brush my teeth, I find another cavity
Everytime I try to fly, I discover gravity
Everytime I have a craving, I run out of food
Everytime we spin the bottle, I’m the 1 who ends up nude
Everytime we play piggy in the middle, I’m the pig
Everytime we play tiggy, I’m the one who’s it
Everytime I lick a toad, I get warts on my tongue
Everytime I see a killer bee, It’s me that’s getting stung
These aren’t even the funniest bits of the song, just the bits I can safely quote here without being too offensive.
So if you like this sort of thing, read more to see more Butterfingers – but remember not to do this if you might be offended!
