Following the release of “Barrio,” Teenage Time Killers have proudly teamed up with Noisey to unleash “Ode To Sean Hannity”—a fierce burst of punk rock fury featuring Jello Biafra on vocals—now live at http://noisey.vice.com/
TTK’s own Reed Mullin explains the fortuitous inspiration behind the track:
“I saw John Cleese from Monty Python on an episode of Keith Olbermann’s old MSNBC show a couple years back, where he happened read his poem ‘Ode to Sean Hannity’ aloud. It was fucking hilarious—the rhythm, or cadence rather, and biting political comedy sounded just like a song Jello & the Dead Kennedys would have written back in the old days.
So, when we were getting our original 5 songs together for what later turned into Teenage Time Killers, I put Cleese’s poem to music, asked Jello to sing it, he said ‘yes’ and the rest is history.”
