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

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.
Great song - VenomxShockerV 4 Comments
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
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.
Just a flawless track overall, I could listen to it all day and not be annoyed by it, my favourite Primus song!
Great bass riff, should be higher
Well put together, love this 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
Awesome bass line 2nd Favorite Primus tune
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
One of Primus's darkest pieces. Great bassline all throughout, but nearing the end the bassline becomes incredibly powerful.
I love the upright bass that les plays - MaidenFan666
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.V 1 Comment
Poor From Primus - SSScarecrow
First Primus song I heard
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
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
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
Don't Like It! - SSScarecrow
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
This song brought Antipop back to the hard rock, funk metal roots of Primus, and I thank it for that... CROWN THE KING! ALL HAIL LACQUER HEAD!V 3 Comments
Good Song Great Show
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
