The Reverend Poky Bunge Band does not endorse the views of Radical Islam and political correctness, nor do they approve of beheading band members, and we dip our bullets in pig’s blood

We caused quite a controversy with this stage show, which we called “The R. P. Bunge Rock and Roll Jihad.” Shortly after that show, I wrote this opus and taught it to them. I did not intend for me to sing it, but the other guys insisted — and its been a hit ever since!

“Where Did You Get the Idea?”

If you’ve read some of my other posts, you’ve probably learned by now that I have a unique mind, a skewed view of the world. So… In writing a song based upon a preemptive title, I could only tell a story about a band who goes to the Middle East to play for the troops. But since they are kinda dumb, they get lost and are captured by Al Qaeda. Two plus two added to chaos, and a song was born.

Lyrics

On a Middle-Eastern tour for the USO
We should have turned right but we continued to go
And deep in the desert we were captured by some guys
Wearing towels on their heads, with murder in their eyes

So they took us to Afghanistan to meet the man, Osama
He said, “Get on your knees now! and pray to your mamma’s”
He raised up his sword, chanted “Allah Akbar”
(whew!) But in the knick of time he had found our guitars

So they didn’t take off with our heads
We taught them to rock and roll instead
So we jammed all night
And Osamma sounded tight
So he raised up his fist and he said (it’s a…)

Rock and Roll Jihad
Coming on like a knife to the throat
Rock and Roll Jihad
going off like a bomb inside your coat

When we played it down in Palestine and blew them all away
The Jews across the border they had nothing bad to say
And next in Tehran at a concert for the Ayatollah
He gave us forty virgins for the gift of rock and roll-a

My burka baby is a bomb
Even though her honey-pot is half gone
Still we rocked all night though it was weirdly kinda tight
Yeah we rocked for the glory of Islam!

Rock and Roll Jihad
Coming on like a knife to the throat
Rock and Roll Jihad
going off like a bomb inside your coat

Now when we come and play your town
We’ll burn you up and then we’ll tear it down
‘Cause you’ve given up the fight
We’re gonna rock on your all night
Rock you with our new Jihad Sound. Yeah!

Rock and Roll Jihad
Coming on like a knife to the throat
Rock and Roll Jihad
going off like a bomb inside your coat
