Republic 0997 (c/o Uni) (cassette single)

The title says it all, doesn't it? Led by the endlessly amusing Jimmy Pop Ali, Bloodhound Gang has a good ol' time pondering odd sexual double standards with no politically correct apologies. The novelty value of this buoyant punk/pop tune is considerable, especially given its four versions, which range in style from loungey to ska. The groundswell of pre-release attention this track has received would seem to ensure an active few weeks of play. From there, it's up to listeners. Smart money is on it succeeding big time. One of numerous goodies on the album "One Fierce Beer Coaster."
