Oh, man. Words cannot properly express my pleasure at the fact that in a mere THREE DAYS, the world will be treated to a brand new New York Dolls album. What’s this got to do with skepticism, you ask? Plenty. And if you don’t like punk rock, I’m about to give you a reason why maybe you should try to get into it anyway.
First of all, the first single off the new album is a song about monkeys. But wait! Not just that, it’s also about evolution, and includes such classic lines as “Come on and shake your monkey hips, my pretty little creationist.” It’s called Dance Like a Monkey, and you can see the awesome video here.
Looking for some more awesome skeptical music? Well, I trust you already know all about Rodney Anonymous, formerly of Dead Milkmen? If not, check out his site RIGHT THE HELL NOW.
Also, perhaps you’ve heard of Dead Kennedys? Their new lead singer is Jeff Alulis, who kicks some serious ass and is a skeptic who you may get to see partially/mostly/all naked in an upcoming Skepdude calendar.
Overman is a band that plays a ton of great skeptical songs like Evolution Rocks. Check out their stuff and if you’re in the Chicago area, go support them, dammit!
And let’s not forget the delectable George Hrab. I don’t mean to objectify the man — he makes some great science-y music. But let’s be honest, he’s super hot. You can hear a bunch of samples on his web site and see a sample of his hotness in the previously mentioned Skepdude calendar.
Got any other suggestions for skeptical bands?
