‘Asshole’ by Denis Leary - Funny Music


A bit of cable TV’s groundbreaking obscenity when it aired on MTV in ’92, Leary’s astonishing parody of American slyness may be out of date. After all, this is a song that mocks America’s worst urges: a mock celebration of peeing in the toilet, littering, and mocking the disabled. After the Trump era, things are still fierce. Turns out these types of assholes aren’t just around the corner. They are more empowered than ever.
