Oddball Song of the Week: Honor in Anarchy – Nice Tits, Bitch!

Nice TitsHonor in Anarchy, a young band from the Atlanta, Georgia, sent us their debut single yesterday. It’s a different type of bouncy, groovy thrash and so off-the-wall that it’s a total hoot. The music is pretty cool too.

Before we play the song, let’s put things in context.

First, the band. They started in 2013 as a groove metal band called D-MOD. Playing the same kind of music as many other bands in one of the most competitive genres wasn’t moving them along very fast. After a rethink they disbanded, then reformed under their current name and rebranded themselves. Their new approach introduces a different way of writing lyrics, for one thing.

In “Nice Tits, Bitch!” the lyrical structure could be called narrative comedy or parody.

The song pays harsh but humorous tribute to the opening scenes of a strange movie titled “ThanksKiller”. Grit your teeth and watch the trailer.

The premise of the movie is that a turkey named Turkie, raised from the dead by a necromancer called Feathercloud, reappears every 505 years to slaughter Caucasians. When it slew its first victim in 1621, it spoke to the corpse: “Nice tits, bitch!”

One of its many targets 505 years later is a guy named Darren. I confess in shame that I haven’t seen the movie and therefore don’t know why Darren is anatomically endowed in the way he is described in the song.

“ThanksKilling” was a low-budget horror-comedy flick. Some critics said it was so badly made, and its humour was so bad too, that the movie was irresistibly enjoyable. It’s become a minor cult classic.

Honor in Anarchy don’t want to be a minor anything. As their spokesman, Chase Kopp, has stated: “HIA is on a mission to dominate the world one bleeding ear at a time.”

Click here for the Bandcamp page where you can listen to “Nice Tits, Bitch!” You need to see the page because it shows all the lyrics. Happy listening.
