The Dead Milkmen 1985 debut release ""Big Lizard In My Backyard"" showed the band taking a more satire approach to punk music. Some witty humour and memorable/catchy grooves that thankfully only clocks in 42 minutes.
Extremely unfunny. Killing people and mental disability is not at all funny without substance. There's no set-up, there's no punchline, there's nothing. Sonically, the album is extremely boring with some of the worst vocalists I've ever heard, they can't even sell their own jokes. On Bitchin' Camaro, the two characters sound like Beavis and Butthead ripoffs from eight years before that show premiered, and that show was funny, this is not.

Best Song: Tugena
Worst Song: Bitchin' Camaro
This debut album by the dead milkmen shows a really clever approach to parodying punk music, but also makes a really good punk album? This band is genius in this album, and basslines are the fucking bomb
