Meatmen

"The Meatmen" were a Michigan, USA punk band headed by Tesco Vee from 1980 to 1995. The Meatmen made fun of the "hardcore scene" of the early 80s.

The band was known for their stage antics, and for songs with such colorful titles as "What's This Shit Called Love?," (Pagans cover) "Lesbian Death Dirge," "I Sin For A Living," "1 Down, 3 To Go" (a reference to the murder of former Beatles member and famous artist John Lennon) and the so-called "Suck Trilogy" of "Crippled Children Suck," "French People Suck," and "Camel Jockeys Suck."

They influenced legions of punks to laugh at life, the punk scene, politics, and all the other crap swirling about during the 80's and beyond. Their live album, "We're the Meatmen...And You Still Suck!!!" embodied their absurd Frampton-rock cock-rock punk-metal journey in one screaming climax of rock stupidity.
