Help write the lyrics for the hit heavy metal song, HOLD THE PIG STEADY from MHI

http://gungeekrants.blogspot.com/2009/08/hold-pig-steady.html 

Head over to Gun Geek Rants. We have a band capable of producing proper metal and interested in the challenge of recording the song from MHI. 

If you remember, this is the song from Owen’s brother’s band, Cabbage Point Killing Machine.  The only known parts of the song were sung by Skippy.  “Hold pig steady … dum dum dum … ra ra ra … yeah. Pig. Pig! PIG!”

And no spoilers, but Skippy isn’t the clearest of speakers. So that gives you a lot of room to work.

 

Let’s ROCK!

 

EDIT:  A google search shows a surprising number of hits for “Hold the Pig Steady.” Apparently holding your pig steady for various things is rather important, and should not in any way be taken lightly.  Monster Hunter Nation is not responsible for any injuries sustained from lack of proper pig manipulation.

I will admit to being curious as to whether you had the lyrics for it figured out yet.

Anything off limits for lyrics?

I gave it a shot, but I might be just too nice of a guy to write lyrics that are sufficiently metal.

If you think it might be a bit off limits, send it to me john@krtraining.com and I’ll have a look. Innuendo is one thing but outright nastiness is not going into it.

Somehow, I heard banjos when I got to that part of the book.

Maybe “Hold the pig steady//it’s startin’ to squeal” for the refrain?

See now, THAT’s the kind of thinking I’m looking for. Ethan, I don’t see a comment with that line of thinking over at teh contest post. Jump in!!

Needs something about bacon for breakfast. Maybe the theme of the song could be about getting pork from a porker to some extent?

I’m going to assume that the “pig” in “Hold The Pig Steady” refers to the M60 GPMG rather than a “Deliverance” moment?

I have to admit, I, too, was wondering if you had written the whole lyrics for it, Larry.

I don’t really like metal, but I’ll definitely have to make sure I purchase the recording when it’s done. Just for the giggle value.

For some reason, when reading the book and thinking of taht song, I imagined something very Avenged Sevenfold like…I’ll see if I can channel M. Shaddows during the lunch break.

LawDog, Sometimes a Pig is just a Pig! What do you want it to be?

I agree with Lawdog. I really liked the lyrics written by Ryan on gungeek’s site. m60 just makes it cool.

Just thinking a little more about this, and while Ryan’s lyrics are moving, I have to wonder… would David “Mosh” Pitt, who doesn’t even TALK to his father, write a song about him and even title the album for that song?

OK, I’m in. It probably sucks, but what the heck.

Hold the pig steady, it’s starin’ to squeal
Hold the pig steady, it’s not just a meal
Hold the pig steady, it’s ready to die
Hold the pig steady, and watch it BLEED!!!!
