“My Dick” Is The Best Cover Band You’re Not Listening To

Jews are a phallocentric people – no surprise considering what 50% of us go through eight days after we take our first breath. That’s why we can’t help but salute Cool Hand, and Hand Solo – the brains behind My Dick, the latest internet-buzz band you should probably be, but aren’t, listening to. Here’s the deal: those Billboard-topping hits from the 70’s, 80’s, and the 90’s? Imagine them, only with key lyrics changed to “My dick”. The Spin Doctor’s “Two Princes” becomes “Two Dicks”, Sting’s “Fields of Gold” becomes “Fields of Dick” and Enya’s “Orinoco Flow”? You guessed it – “Orinoco Dick”

If this seems like a one trick pony, well, it is. And a juvenile one, too. Having said that, something interesting happens when you listen to My Dick’s entire digital album (“Double Full-Length” – another dick joke? Who knows?) from start to finish. Unlike say, Weird Al, My Dick doesn’t so much “parody” songs, as they deconstruct them. And, with no clever wordplay to keep track of, you’re left with the distinct impression that the source material just might be as stupid and inane as the covers themselves sound. For example, does my dick-ing Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” make it any worse than it already is? It turns out that, no, it does not. Or, as My Dick said in a recent interview in The Frisky: “I like taking the piss out of songs people find sacred

We can’t help but wonder, though, what would happen if My Dick were to turn their sights toward Yeshiva drop-out turned street-hustler turned sleeze rapper Mickey Avalon, and his anthemic ode to his self-described “kosher salami”…

    Close, but wrong. The best cover band you’re not listening to is Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine. Cover, parody, and talent all rolled into one Jew named Mark Jonathan Davis. This dick really swings!

    It’s awesome. It’s the most juvenile humor ever and somehow it still works. It’s clever because it’s not clever at all. :D
