Turbonegro – Ass Cobra

TurbonegroAss Cobra Boomba 001-2 (1996)

My favorite Turbonegro album.  It’s got all the gay raunch punk/metal that I want.  With song names like “The Midnight NAMBLA,” you really shouldn’t be surprised by what you get here.  Old heavy metal kind of took itself too seriously, with pretensions to being deep and profound.  Turbonegro took all the allusions and implied meanings of old metal and put them into a sarcastic, campy, blunt package that leaned heavily on hardcore punk sounds for enjoyment at a very superficial level, where that stuff belongs.
