Man (Opposable Thumb)

from by Insane Ian



A cover of the Presidents of the United States of America tune, released originally on their underground "Froggystyle" demo cassette, then widely (albeit, lyrically edited) on the soundtrack to the Nickelodeon movie "Good Burger". A Slightly different version of the song (with lyrics intact, but slight changes to the mix and music) was then released on PUSA's "final" album/b-sides collection "Pure Frosting" in 1998. Released today for PUSA lead singer Chris Ballew's birthday. Happy birthday, Chris! You're the man!
