Story behind the song
Matt: It's a little remembered fact that over 90% of the population wanted to be incinerated in a nuclear war. I believe the causal agent for this collective insanity was "Flock of Seagulls."
Curt was not one who you could easily pull the wool over his eyes (unlike Flock of Seagulls) so he set out to offer an alternative to nuclear war. He was successful - no nuclear war to date.
I think that Mike or Ron wrote the music for this, and Curt wrote the words.
Ron: Recorded at The Evergreen State College in Studio B by Bryan Learned (bass player for the Young Pioneers) on 12/07/1983.
I think nuclear war is bad
and so should you
let me warn ya
very very bad
yadda yadday yadda
