The Dead Milkmen Window

…the pop cultural version of the Overton Window.

I used to think the Dead Milkmen were incredibly funny, if rather darkly so. Essentially, they were internet trolls before there was an internet. 4chan 20 years before there was a 4chan.

Nowadays, the best that can be said about them is that they were merely ahead of the curve. Anyone discovering this song today would think “Oh, just another noncissexual minority transidextrous person who wears lifts in their (hopefully fabulous) shoes.”

  1. Whiskey! Tango! Foxtrot!?

    Did Doctor Demento use to play them back in the day?

  2. Only at NSR could I have encountered such a musical gem.

    I don’t know how apropos but it put me in mind of

    Plus Zappa’s Bobby Brown (totally NSFW).
