In 2022, this song could never be made. It's violent, in a school, and quite politically incorrect.
In 1983, it was the B-side to a song that didn't have the staying power of this one.
Julie Brown is an actress, a comedian, a musician, a screenwriter (she wrote BOTH Camp Rock movies) and sometimes an MTV VJ. Her songs - not just this one - still crack me up all these years later.
But even in 1983, this song wasn't well-received by critics. It was a novelty song, to be sure - but it wasn't like the cute and funny ones of the past like "Disco Duck", It was dark, and graphic, and appealed to a different sense of humor.
The people loved it, though - and the song still endures as one of the best known novelty songs ever.
