Loser (3:55)

Cover of Mellow Gold

From Mellow Gold and 50 other releases

“Loser” was Beck’s first single for Geffen Records. The song was released from the 1994 album “Mellow Gold” & hit #10 on the American charts. Although this was Beck’s third studio album, it was his first on a major label.

According to the Loser Songfacts, Beck got the idea for this from his friend who always called him “Loser.” Beck decided to write it into a chorus of a song as a joke. He didn’t think anything would ever come of it.

The Spanish heard in the chorus - “Soy un perdedor” - means “I am a loser.” Beck has said that idea came while he was creating the first version of the song at another artist’s home. When the original version was played back for him, he thought “Man, I’m the worst rapper in the world. I’m just a loser.”

The rest, as they say, is history.

In the time of chimpanzees, I was a monkey
Butane in my veins and I'm out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs, spray paint the vegetables
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
