As I am sure you all know by now, Seth Putnam, lead vocalist from legendary, asshole, grindcore band Anal Cunt, has died. AC (as they were known around people who find the word “cunt” offensive) were a profound influence in my life as a young metal head. Here were a bunch of guys making absurdly heavy, dissonant grind who obviously didn’t take themselves seriously at all. This stood in stark contrast to the other guys who were making absurdly heavy, dissonant metal who obviously took themselves pretty damn seriously indeed. If you’re a metal head (and I hope you are), then you know what I am talking about.

To celebrate the life and career of a man who wrote some of my favorite under 1 minute long songs, here is a list of some of my favorite Anal Cunt song titles in no particular order.

  • I Respect Your Feelings As A Woman And A Human
  • MTV Is My Source For New Music
  • “Well You Know, Mean Gene…”
  • Brutally Morbid Axe of Satan
