    Hope I don't catch it for this, but I love the line "Pour my beer down the sink, I've got more in the trunk."

    Oops...I rewrote what I saw on the lyrics site. I'm too young to remember Ballantine's in its heyday, so I didn't catch the mistake - although my dad, who was fond of their offerings in the 70s, recently gave me an IPA brewed by the latest incarnation of Ballantine's.

    During the Paul's Boutique days, the Beasties were anything but concerned with copyright infringement, so likely an error in the lyrics on the site.

    You know what, Stuart?
    I like you
    You're not like the other people here, in the trailer park

    Oh, don't go get me wrong
    They're fine people, they're good Americans
    But they're content to sit back
    Maybe watch a little Mork and Mindy on channel 57
    Maybe kick back a cool Coors 16-ouncer
    They're good, fine people, Stuart
    But they don't know
    What the queers are doing to the soil

    Old punk is an extremely rich vein for these.

    Tom Waits, stating the obvious as only he can: I'd rather have a bottle in front'a me than a frontal lobotomy.

    And of course: Warm beer and cold women/I just don't fit in/Every joint I stumbled into tonight/That's just how it's been

    Ever since you left me, I live out of my car,

    Parked between the liquor store and Uncle Bubba's bar.

    Booze helps ease the heartache, you're constantly in mind,

    As constant as that buzzin', Lord, of Uncle Bubba's sign.

    Favorite song about beer is Jim Ed Brown's recording of Pop A Top:


    Favorite song that mentions beer is Dylan's Tangled Up In Blue.

    I also like any song that involves drinking in the morning... a couple of which have already been mentioned.

    A couple that mention the pint that the beer is in ( for @Lingenbrau ? :wink: ) & " a tankard of ale"
    This is apparently adapted from an old drinking song. ( & might be just me, but 4:15-4:35 seems like a sped up, metalized Gilligan's Island theme song. :slight_smile: )




    & of course an ode to Guinness


    I know I've posted others to WBADN?, that aren't already listed, but can't think of 'em at the moment. There were also a couple with somebody playing the guitar with the beer. (bottle) :grimacing:

    I dig it! Reminds me of "Billy Passed the Third Grade" :]

    I forgot about that! Awesome song. My Finnish friends would shame me if they knew I forgot.

    Oh man, I can go on and on forever! Here's some of my favorites:

    Surprised no one mentioned this.


    From Chicago's finest.



    SF's finest.



    Obviously growing up a shithead punk rocker had its benefits of beer anthems:wink:. Cheers!

    "So gimme a guinness, gimme a keystone light, gimme a kegger on a friday night, gimme anything but another year in this life...I need a whiskey!"
