Rock And Roll Plus Food = One Big Unnecessary List

Rock And Roll Plus Food – When I sift through my music collection or go online to look at what’s around for tunes, I always get the biggest kick out of bands, albums and songs that are named after food. Sometimes I’ll find a musician that has a food name too, as you’ll see below. In essence, this is really one unnecessary list I’ve compiled here. Regardless, there are times in life when I feel the need to accomplish unnecessary tasks. Feel free to comment any other songs, albums, bands or musicians that have food names… if you feel it is as unnecessary as I do.

The Rolling StonesSticky Fingers (1971)

Okay, so the Rock Classic Brown Sugar is on this vintage Stones album. I realize brown sugar is not an exact food, however, you can still digest it and it is an ingredient. Isn’t this what the song is really about anyways? Eating brown sugar from Aunt Mabels pantry?

Bee Gee’sCucumber Castle (1970)

Whoa! I’ve never been to Cucumber Castle before! Do they serve cucumbers there? Is this castle shaped like a gigantic cucumber? Is there a “pickled cucumber castle” as well?

limp bizkitchocolate starfish and the hot dog flavored water (2000)

Um… I’ll pass on the chocolate starfish. I’ll especially pass on the hot dog flavored water. Sounds much too gassy.

David Hamburgerplays blues, ballads & a pop song (2008)

David Hamburger. Could there be, by process of elimination, a person out there with the last name of “hot dog”? Plus, could you imagine, if a Hamburger married a hot dog! Man, what would the children look like?

Vanilla Fudgeout through the in door (2007)

Vanilla Fudge ROCKS. Why? Cause the legendary Carmine Appice plays drums and sings for Vanilla Fudge… that’s why. Anyhow, vanilla fudge is something we can eat and listen to at the same time. Metal be thy name.

Zac Brown BandThe Foundation (2008)

On this particular Zac Brown album, apparently there is some “chicken fever” going on. Two songs have “chicken” in their respective title. They are: Chicken Fried and Sic ‘Em On A Chicken.

David Lee RothSkyscraper (1988)

Skyscraper is a very good David Lee Roth album, in case you never gave it a listen. I remember partying to this album like there was no tomorrow. Okay, the food song on Skyscraper is: Hot Dog and a Shake. Just think about it for a Metal second… it can’t possibly be that easy to write a song about a hot dog and a shake. Regardless, David Lee Roth and Steve Vai were able to.

Soul AsylumClam Dip & Other Delights EP (1989)

Um, I’ll eat the Clam Dip only I’ll pass over on the “other delights” thank you.

Jimmy BuffetSon of a Son of a Sailor (1978)

C’mon. If you’ve never sang along to Cheeseburger in Paradise while two sheets to the wind, you’re either lying or destined to do so.

Van HalenVan Halen (1978)

Vintage Van Halen here. This album started it all for this beyond legendary band. The food song heard on Van Halen’s debut is: Ice Cream Man. I always felt is was so cool, that Van Halen acknowledged a hardworking Summertime dude… like the ice cream man.

That concludes this One Big Unnecessary List on Rock And Roll Plus Food. Thank you for stopping by and please come back again.

  1. Its not metal, and its barely rock’n’roll, hell, it’s not even a good meal…..but as snack, and a very funny 2 minute single, you just can’t beat Spolodgenessabounds’ Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps:

      Thanks for this entry & link to the list Kev! Man, that song is very, very, funny. Um, I actually found myself playing air drums to it while I was chuckling! 😮

  2. It’s like you did this for my big day yesterday. You have some real cool classics there. BTW, the British post messed up and it seems I have to wait a few more days for the Warrant CD to get here.

  3. How about…

    “Milk” by Stormtroopers Of Death,
    “Beer” by Murphy’s Law,
    “Hot Flash Jelly Roll” by Dirty Looks,
    “Cold Gin” by KISS,
    “Cherry Pie” by Warrant,
    “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard,
    “Strawberry Fields Forever” by The Beatles,
    “The Lemon Song” by Led Zeppelin,
    “TV Dinners” by ZZ Top,
    the Mr. Big album “Raw Like Sushi”.

    I like song titles categories…choosing a category and thinking of song titles that fit under it.

    • metalodyssey Says:

      It’s fun stuff isn’t it? Those are all excellent choices… “TV Dinners” is just classic in both title and song! I wonder, what the heck is a “Hot Flash Jelly Roll” anyways? LOL…

      I’m like you with the lists. It makes for a cool detour once in awhile. 🙂
