I love how deceptively angry this song is, and of course the unexpectedness of the big twist. Beautiful mindfuckery. -=ShoEboX=-

In the words of Ronald Reagan: "Ketchup is a vegetable"....that's all I got until I can hear this song...which I anticipate will folk my socks off!

Dude, this may be the most brilliant track you've ever created. I hope Dr. Demento gives it a spin, after adding a bleep or two. Bravo.

Well... that's different. You know, until this song, I would never have thought to put A1 on a hamburger!

Amazingly well done. Or medium rare. Or something. I loved it. :)

i just got to thinking. the Burger King "Loaded Steakhouse Burger" comes with A1 steak sauce on it unless you specify otherwise. and it IS very nasty

Sad, but awesome.

Great song, and so true! Get this- I just saw an A1 commercial featuring... you guessed it... A1 on a hamburger. The biggest difference was that this one just sort of went off of the premise that A1 is the greatest thing ever, no bullshit fake logic included. Perhaps they believe people are getting stupider over time.

Just listened to this song again on my playlist and it's still full of awesome.

No one even brought up the fact that this song is set to a musical composition called "Long Train Great Plain" by an unknown composer. I was listening to classical and stock music last night or the night before, and Long Train Great Plain came on, and I said, "Hey, Balder used that!" Am I the only classical/stock music geek on this site who recognized that?
