Top Ten Primus SongsThey're my favorite so I thought I would make this list.
Great song, but anybody that thinks this is their best is delusional or uninformed. Its good but check out Frizzle Fry and Sailing the Seas for the gems.
The raw simplistic contagiousness of the bass line combined with the unabashed cold-blooded-ness of the lyrics makes this one hauntingly legendary.
This is a classic. The bass at the beginning is one of the best ever in the history of music.
How is this not better than john the fisherman? Like seriously its amazing! I heard it a long time ago though
Dog will hunt
A masterpiece of nonsense that is challenging to understand, let alone learn to play. A true example of the madness of PRIMUS
Les claypool's bass playing on this song is fantastic on it's own, but one of life's great mysteries is how he plays and sings it at the same time.
Incredible song. And It's even more amazing live with the extended guitar and bass solos, and always going into an epic jam!
I love this song
Fun, obscure, upbeat, nonsensical, quirky, this song is the best song to cheer anyone up.
Strange western influences in this song, Larry Lalonde is very underrated!
Beaver is just to quick, grabbed my by my kiwis now I ain't pissed for a week...
This song is so good that Korn had to copy the intro. I love this song because even though the metaphor may seem silly it perfectly conveys his message.
Too many puppies are being shot in the dark...
Maybe the best song ever made.
Look, I'm not a primus fan and I don't like their music but I can't deny that this is a good song. It's got everything from the killer bass to the guitar shred and the lyrics. This is the only primus track I like and it's for a good reason
It doesn't sound like Primus, but it's a perfect song. The vocals, the BASS, and the guitar solos in the background. Soft and powerful. Amazing.
Just a flawless track overall, I could listen to it all day and not be annoyed by it, my favourite Primus song!
It's catchy, and it demonstrates how awesome Les Claypool is, and how down to earth he is compared to other artists out there.
Awesome song, super sick
Have to listen to it live to fully appreciate it! One of the overlooked songs compared to their most well known hits but still one of the best
The best Primus song in my opinion Les Claypool plays the bass amazingly in this song.Larry Lalonde and Tim Alexander play there instruments amazingly as well.I believe this song and Bob are the two quintessintial Primus songs.
Really couldn't choose one song to vote, but this is one of my favorite and cannot be down here. Old Primus are the best.
Yeah it's really amazing, though I do prefer American life. Plus the music video... Damn.
The guitar that kicks in at 3:40 over the bass riff is as good as it gets.
Anyone who plays bass can hear this line and appreciate it. Easy to learn, hard to master. Still trying to figure it out.
Great dull bass, love it. Primus really does have quite an acquired taste. Marmite if you will
I don't like many songs by them (so far), but this one is amazing. The bassline is one of the best I've ever heard
Tasty banjo intro, then a nice groove with light lyrics about fishing. After this part, a long, excellent bass solo follows. This song finishes with a repetition of the chorus. They really nailed it, as usual.
Someone said that this could be interpreted as waking up on your boat (the soft banjo), then turning on the motor and starting your day fishing (harsh low bass sound of the verses, with lyrics about fishing), then catching a big fish (sounds of fishing right before the solo), then struggling with that heavy fish (crazy bass solo with lots of slides, as if the fish were being pulled up and pulling down), but it's finally thumped at the end (bass thump), and everyone is happy (repetition of the chorus). It's a nice interpretation. Primus is a musical genius.
I love this song so much. Their best after My Name Is Mud and the best song in Sailing The Seas of Cheese. Such a dark and mysterious masterpiece.
Amazing song. Highlights everyone well.
"And whatever rhymes with eloquent" is one of my favorite out-of-context lyrics.
Such a unique and solid bass line, combined with a very climactic chorus, make this a favorite primus song in my book. Not to mention the high speed bass solo in after the first chorus. An impressive composition overall.
This song is so catchy. I mean, they all are, but right now, I'd give this #1. Also, the video rules.
Sweet funk in the verses, sweet metal guitar in the chorus. Whats not to like?
This is one of the coolest songs I've ever heard performed live. In my opinion the song is to short, I want more!
My personal favorite song by Primus, it's amazing!
Clearly underrated on this website!
Personally my favorite song of "PRIMUS 2.0" - Super catchy, true to primus, but still progressing
This is one of the best fastest most confusing riffs. Suprised this is not on the list
Needs to be higher simply due to the pure funkiness to this song.
Not my favorite but it's so low I had to vote for it. Such a good song.
In my opinion definitely LaLonde's best work, it's just such a groovin' song.
