BLACK FAG: Self-titled: CD

Mar 13, 2007

I love humor in my music. I think that parody is not only one of the most hilarious things ever, but also one of the most sincere forms of flattery. I live in a world where Weird Al is a master and Manic Hispanic are gods. Black Fag is funny. Imagine, if you will, all of your favorite Black Flag songs being played really well. That’s cool. Now imagine them so flamingly gay that to take it any further would be to make them into showtunes. Classic. My only complaint is that they didn’t change many of the lyrics, instead choosing just to rely on the inflection of the delivery. I was expecting full lyric changes like Manic does, but only had the amazing chant of “Oscar Party Tonight, Tony Party Tonight.” That’s the funny stuff right there. It should be also noted that proceeds from the sales of this CD go to various gay and lesbian charities and education funds. Nice work.
