80's Flashback

Julie Brown, The Homecoming Queen's Got A Gun, 1984. This classic novelty record was actually the B-side to Brown's minor hit I Like 'Em Big And Stupid, but became a bigger hit on its own after heavy play from Dr. Demento's nationally syndicated radio show. Best line: "So I ran down and I said, in her good ear..." After the Columbine High School massacre in 1999, Brown said she no longer felt comfortable performing Homecoming Queen, although last year she re-recorded the track as an anti-Palin dig titled The Ex-Beauty Queen's Got A Gun.
