Song Info


Hey Joe (Joe Stalin) (Beatnik Turtle Music/Blegen/Lockhart/Scholtka)


Played at Second City, Celebrities/Famous People, Songs That Contain People's Names


Hey Joe, Joe Stalin (Stalin, Stalin, Stalin)
Hey Joe, Joe Stalin (Stalin, Stalin, Stalin)

He rose from bitter poverty to become the ruler of the USSR
Now he's biting my best friend's head off in my backyard
I guess the more things change the more they stay the same
Looks like Joe Stalin will always eat capitalist brains

Song Notes:

This song was written for a Second City show called Sci-Fry, which had a segment about a kid who bought Stalin's corpse off of EBay, and re-animated him using parts from a discarded Simon game, making him a zombie Stalin. Hence the "eating capitalist brains" lyric. When we wrote this, we were aiming at a "Courtship of Eddie's Father" feel.

By the way, on this day in 1953, Joeseph Stalin died. Had he lived, Beatnik Turtle would likely be recording in Siberia.
