Sudden Death Why Can't I Shoot The Dog 
featuring The Gothsicles
Ah, Duck Hunt. That lovely little 8-bit video game for the NES that used the revolutionary light gun to put you right in the action. It was a great experience, for the most part. But when you missed all the ducks your loyal canine friend would mock you and laugh at you. Many of us tried shooting the dog in frustration. Unfortunately, in this game, this was not allowed.

This song is from the new Sudden Death album Fatal Error which now available in the FuMP Store! Click here to get your copy. This will be the last track released to The FuMP from this album.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

My dog is afraid of the Gothsicles, the way they go boom-tssit-boom, boom-tssit-boom, boom-tssit-boom! And they way they rock out in the middle of the night, to crowds of geeks and crowds of goths, who dance and cheer and sing their songs, which reference things from popular culture, like games and fonts and turn signals, their lyrics all sound innocent enough, but then why are they screaming like demons, and singing things that are obviously code, like up-up-down-down-left-left-right, that doesn't sound kosher, it sounds like a cheat, and if they're cheaters how can my dog trust them, and now they want to "Shoot the Dog," and maybe it will be a Triple Shot, but they don't even think that he's a Real Dog, so the thing that scares my dog the most, and haunts his days and haunts his nights, until he Decided to Become a Goth ...is the way they go boom-tssit-boom, boom-tssit-boom, boom-tssit-boom!

This is great, guys. I always hated that dog. At least 3 times during every round, I would try to shoot the stupid thing. If Nintendo really wanted to please consumers, they'd re-release the game with a special "Canine Carnage" option. This is an awesome track. (Also, Rob's mini-parody is totally FTW!)

I've recently played a few free games on the net based on "Duck Hunt" where, thankfully, you CAN shoot the dog. I'll post a comment on the song here when I've heard it....but thank you Devospice and Gothiscles for paying homage to what was a favorite game of mine. (After Super Mario Bros, that is). Now why can't the Fump stop being so awesome? I guess it's just instinctual...Here FUMP! C'mere Boy....awww...good doggie!

I first heard this at Marscon. The song was pure brilliance. 20 years of my childhood angst put into one song. This is full of win.

Yes! Go postal on that vicious cur! Man, this song is like if Marylin Manson and the Stockholm Syndrome sung karaoke with Kanye West and Daft Punk, and then played video games afterwards. Devo you deserve another play on Dr. Demento, and The lead singer of the Gothsicles, (whatever your name is), you deserve another glass of water for those powerful vocals of yours.

I remember trying to shoot that dog both in the home version of the game and the arcade version. I hate that snickering mutt!!

Who here can say they've created a (compound) word that has been used in a song by their favorite band? *raises hand*

Rob, that was awesome. So sorry I missed your shout out at the Smackdown to, I had a mighty need.
2008-03-07 darkNES
Ack, I ment to say "too". I'm i'll.
2008-03-07 darkNES
And that should have said "meant". Aight, enough of that.

I can remember playing Duck Hunt when I was a lad, but I don't recall having such anger issues. (except when I'd occassionally pound the controller over a game of Kirb'y Adventure...) Anyway, the whole song was good, but I'd say the ending (with the SFX) was a highlight...Well, that, and, "I put a little target on his furry rear end!"

The first video game I ever played was a NES in my neighbor's basement, and guess what was on it? Oh, how that mutt deserved the divine retribution of my vermillion weapon... I'm glad that in a more abstracted, poetic way we all can feel that he has indeed gotten his just desserts.
