Where do bad folks go when they die?
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
They go to a lake of fire and fry
Won't see 'em again till the 4th of July

  • choon
  • the version they did with Kurt was amazing. they improved it much better with him than when they redid the song for their other album.
  • The best version!!
  • Version from Too High to Die is pretty good as well. I think each version has it's own separate identity. None of them is superior to any of the others.
  • Great song
  • So influential and so underrated, under-appreciated and under-known (much like their fellow Arizonans, Giant Sand). It's a musical crime that some don't know that this is an MP original, not a Nirvana cover (along with Oh, Me and Plateau). 30 years later, this stuff is still totally original and beyond genre classification (no, "cowpunk" doesn't quite cut it).
  • This is great.
  • nirvana cover is betterer but i love the original ofcourse
  • When it comes to Lake of Fire, I'm torn between preferring the original or Nirvana's cover. But there is one thing which is certain: Cris and Curt's version is most excellent when slightly toasted in that strange period of time during the closing moments of a Saturday afternoon, when only a few shards of the dead day linger but the night has not yet begun.
  • it's not a cover -.-
