Bikini Girls with Machine Guns

Life catches up to absurdity



It's not so much that it's fake as it is that you could believe that it was a real pic. Although you could do the same thing with any female politician it's more believable with Sarah Palin than with Hillary Clinton, for instance.

I was in my car listening to a mix that included both Ministry and the Cramps, who are the ur-psychobilly/rockabilly punk group, when I realized that one of the songs I had on there could easily fit both Palin and her supporters: Bikini Girls with Machine Guns.

The song, which was probably written by the female leader of the Cramps is like so many others that they did an attempt at hyperbole and absurdism, taking the sort of sexy macho image and extending it as far as it can possibly go so that you just wind up laughing at it. But we now have a Bikini Girl with a Machine Gun-like candidate for the biggest election in the United States, who's getting all sorts of vocal support from macho guys who dig the hunting angle and want to fuck her.

Here, then is the video and the lyrics to "Bikini Girls with Machine Guns"
By the way the woman in it is the leader of the band, and the guitarist, who wrote the song.

Well i savored many foriegn kinds of delicacies, intoxicated til i can't tell what the hell i could see, and all that violence and liquor within close reach, but all bars, pills and threeways lead me back to the beach and...

Bikini girls with machine guns, bikini girls with machine guns, that stuff will kill ya, it's loaded with fun, bikini girls with machine guns

Now they say that virtue is it's own reward, but when that surf comes in i'm gunna get my board, got my own ideas about the righteous kick, you can keep the rewards, i'd just as soon stay sick...

Bikini girls with machine guns, bikini girls with machine guns, that stuff will kill ya, it's loaded with fun, bikini girls with machine guns "
