Top Ten Primus Songsbiscuits They're my favorite so I thought I would make this list.
The Top Ten
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.
The grove with that base line and the drums as well as the f up lyrics make it magical!
My first Primus song. Sick bass and a creepy atmosphere, Primus at their finest. - HardRockSamV 9 Comments

It is the penultimate primus song, no question

My favorite from primus by far
I hate people who are of a different variety than of my own
Calling John The Fisherman - Glauberson

Incredible song. And It's even more amazing live with the extended guitar and bass solos, and always going into an epic jam!
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.
tommy the cat pwns my favorite song all time. Go les claypool!
This song shows the best in Les, Ler, and Tim. A great guitar solo, an awesome bass line, and a cool drum track.V 7 Comments
The best by far! Love it! Very tight and polished track beats!
Strange western influences in this song, Larry Lalonde is very underrated!
Fun, obscure, upbeat, nonsensical, quirky, this song is the best song to cheer anyone up.
Beaver is just to quick, grabbed my by my kiwis now I ain't pissed for a week...V 5 Comments
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.
A lot of energy! Strong text
Maybe the best song ever made.
Too classic to be ignored!V 1 Comment
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.
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
Awesome bass line 2nd Favorite Primus tune
Just a flawless track overall, I could listen to it all day and not be annoyed by it, my favourite Primus song!
This song is criminally underrated. Enough said.
Great bass riff, should be higher
That bass thoughV 1 Comment
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
Good Song Great Show
You know a band made it big when they made the theme song to one of the most well known shows of all time. - christangrant
Don't Like It! - SSScarecrow
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. - fidelcanojr
Great Song...FISH ON! - SSScarecrow
This is one of the coolest songs I've ever heard performed live. In my opinion the song is to short, I want more!
Sounds like Hillbilly Tool
One of Primus's darkest pieces. Great bassline all throughout, but nearing the end the bassline becomes incredibly powerful.
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.
The guitar that kicks in at 3:40 over the bass riff is as good as it gets.
My 2nd favorite Primus song with Wynona's Big Brown Beaver first
Poor From Primus - SSScarecrow
First Primus song I heard
Underrated song. One of my favourites.
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.
My favourite by a good stretch, superb basslines, great dynamic changes, trippy music video and best of all great album.
Gotta love anything edgy enough to be banned from MTV. Solid bass and drums
I love the heaviness in this song to be honest - AdamDestructorJr.V 4 Comments
This song is awesomly psychedelic!
The intro part with drum roll makes me fly away each time I hear it
Such a great building epicness
I can't describe how good this track is...AWESOME.
Awesome Track-Unequalled! - SSScarecrow
ThisIt Is My Favourite Track Of All Time!
WoW...! Brilliant! - SSScarecrow
Clearly underrated on this website!
To Be With Chucles and the Others - Glauberson
One Of My Favourite Tracks Ever! - SSScarecrow
Fantastic Track!...Fantastic Album! Should Be Number 2. - SSScarecrow
Fantastic Track-Should Be Number 2...! - SSScarecrow
This is one of the best fastest most confusing riffs. Suprised this is not on the list
it's hidden in the album antipop
Amazing song, the transition between the verse and the chorus is really incredible! I think it should be first but after all, it's just a matter of opinion, hehe.
Great Quirky Song. - SSScarecrow
..Catchy..Catchy! Fantastic little singalong ditty - SSScarecrow
Weird, Quirky...MINT! - SSScarecrow
Love It Love It - SSScarecrow
Probably the only Primus song that is listenable to most people. The song that got me started on Primus
Great Great Singalong...By MILES the best track on Antipop. - SSScarecrow
Seriously? Nowhere on this entire list? This is basically the definite Primus song. Jay Lane's drums in this song is basically the best in his career with Primus.
How is this at 53?! It should at least be in the top 20! - HardRockSam
The music video to this cover is great - christangrant
Prolly my favourite primus song, just too funky
This song is amazing in just about every way, the strangest and dark bassline with the distinct vocals and the guitar parts which are kind of distant and "drunk".
Awesome amazing bass their best
Needs to be higher simply due to the pure funkiness to this song.
People need to get their primusorities in order
In my opinion definitely LaLonde's best work, it's just such a groovin' song.
Great song with great drums and bass
Great Song...Great Album! - SSScarecrow
Love It - Love The Album Green Naugahyde too! - SSScarecrow
Hypnotic to say the least
Great Catchy Ditty From A Great Album.. - SSScarecrow
Best instrumental by primus, worth to hear
Not my favorite Primus song, but probably my second favorite from Pork Soda (behind My Name Is Mud, obviously). I'm voting for this one so that it gets more recognition, as it definitely should be in the top twenty at least. - Dorito
"Boy, don't you know? "
The whole world's gone crazy over that there Beavis and Butt-head show - christangrant
Considering This Is The Mighty Primus - Awful.. - SSScarecrow
This song actually kind of makes me want to get up in the morning- The song has a really nice bass groove with a nice smooth guitar riff.
