Musical Monday: DRINK! - Alestorm

"WE ARE HERE
    /  TO DRINK YOUR BEER!"

Okay, totally a D&D song.  Tell me you can't see every adventuring party ever in history singing this song at some point.  Player characters get silly, they get rowdy, they get wonky.




I have mixed feelings about the classic sexism, but fuck it, it's all part of the joke.  I do like the punchline that they've "civilized" the bastard at the end.  (And, seriously, one of those "refined ladies" has a serious tattoo - you just know she's a reformed rogue or retired adventuring cleric hiding out in "civilized society.")

But, really, it's just got a good old D&D rumpus kind of sound and feel and absurd premise.  It's like the classic Discworld Dwarf song "Gold! Gold! Gold!"

Anyway, it's funny.
