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

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.
