Butthole Surfers Lyrics


Formerly known as the Ashtray Baby Heads, this maverick
quartet from Austin, Texas, USA, made its recording debut
in 1983 with a self-titled mini-album (the name Butthole
Surfers comes from an early song about beach
transvestites). Gibson "Gibby"


Haynes (vocals) Paul Leary Walthall aka Paul Sneef (guitar)
and King Coffey (drums) were initially indebted to the
punk/hardcore scene, as shown by the startling "The Shah
Sleeps In Lee Harvey's Grave', but other selections were
inspired by a variety of sources. Loping melodies, More...

Review about Butthole Surfers songs
I was cool once | Reviewer: It was me
    ------ About the song Who Was In My Room Last Night? performed by Butthole Surfers

I had to look it up when I saw Gibby on TV. I remember when I saw this video when I was young and people saw videos on TV. We pulled out some tapes and I remember hearing "friend with weed."

    ------ About the song Pepper performed by Butthole Surfers

I was also in the class of '76 at Lake Highlands HS in Dallas, knew Gibby since 5th grade. The first time I heard this song it struck a nerve and I KNEW it was about us and I just guessed it was Butthole Surfers. Tommy did play piano, amazingly improvising the score for our drama performance of Through the Looking Glass (I think, 37 years have faded most of my high school memories). I never attended a reunion, but friends that did told me he was in a wheelchair, from an accident on a RR track, and that he suffered with depression... I do remember many hazy days spent with him, in my smokey '66 VW Van. The other names; some bring up vivid images of leering red faced jocks with yellow/red hair, others of too pretty-too horrible cheerleaders,a closeted gay friend... It was us. I know it.

    ------ About the song Dracula From Houston performed by Butthole Surfers

I guess the bike represents his dreams and ambitions which for the most part he can't actualize since he's wasting his life, and the monkey telling him what do represents his life hitting shit creek, since I suppose things have gotta be bad if you're taking orders from a simian.

Good, but not 100% right | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Dust Devil performed by Butthole Surfers

Correction: The (?) is "the sand becomes a potent mixture" wind is as high as the flame

I drove out to the canyon grinding dust up in front of the sand

I grab on to a foreign hand I was walking through the door

Discovered I was buying a pint of [Wild] Turkey at the liquor store (I put "wild" in brackets because even though he doesn't sing it on the album, he usually sings it live)

"I threw my pint and all the lives looked exactly like a picture show"





80's indies | Reviewer: Brettwiggins
    ------ About the song Who Was In My Room Last Night? performed by Butthole Surfers

One of the great 80's indie bands. Read "our band could be your life" it really goes in depth about the most influential indies bands of the 80's. As with most bands from that era, the song that most people identify with the surfers is not even close to being their best

Great Song | Reviewer: Jdjdiahsjd

    ------ About the song Pepper performed by Butthole Surfers

I heard this song for the first time, maybe just yesterday. I haven't been able to get it out of my head since! Just something about it makes it so.. addicting. If you need me, I'll be listening to it over and over again for the next few months.

Love it | Reviewer: Mark
    ------ About the song Pepper performed by Butthole Surfers

I heard this song first when my oldest song listened to it in high school. He always said he was the football player. Since I grew up with Led Zeppelin and Santana and the Beatles, I don't care for a lot of what's out there today, but I love these guys and especially this song, to me this is what great rock - or any great music is all about - a good rhythm with a good story behind it, catchy lyrics done by killer talent.

love this song | Reviewer: Nicole

    ------ About the song Pepper performed by Butthole Surfers

I'm from midland tx I love this song.... Every time I hear it it reminds me of when I just changed schools and on my first day riding the bus to school me and a few others got delayed cause we witnessed a guy playing on the train tracks he got hit.. He lost his head and much more but I thought of this song when it happened idk I went to many schools all around the US. And if you think texas kids are messed up try milton fl that will change ur mind quick!!
