After the Comic Strip did their hilarious Bad News and More Bad News, came the Bad News album. A selection if spoof songs, all intentionally played badly, interspersed with dialogue of the band arguing, being interviewed, getting drunk and locking each other in the studio. Only the foulest of foul language is used throughout.
When I was fifteen (too long ago!), I was a huge heavy metal fan and many a breaktime, lunchtime and study period was spent listening to Bad News. Simply thinking about it makes me chuckle to myself.
Hey Hey Bad News - THE best singalong chorus ever written
Warriors Of Ghengis Khan – “Baby, baby, baby, baby, babyyyyyy!”
Bohemian Rhapsody – Bohemian Crapsody
Bad News – Den’s lead solo!
Masturbike – enough said
Drink ‘til I Die – “Give me a drink, Mr Bartender…”
The dialogue is often witty, often sublime, usually vulgar and always hilarious.
If you like Heavy Metal, immature toilet humour and willy jokes, you must own this.
If you’re easily offended, stay away.
