The Top 50 Tracks of 2010: Teddybears – Chrystal Meth Christian

November 13, 2010

50. Teddybears – Chrystal Meth Christian.

#50. Teddybears – Chrystal Meth Christian.mp3

The fun-loving former grindcore kids (no shit) are back, bringing along the Flaming Lips for an enjoyably bouncy ride. The track pushes 10 and the snarky double baiting of Christians and druggies draws a straight line between two forms of addiction. Whether you’re just high on “life” or something more powerful, the Teddybears would like you to take a guess at just how many fingers they’re holding up.

Buy more Teddybears.



  1. Too bad this post doesn’t have two ‘like’ buttons…one for your intro/analysis and the other for the music selection. I would hit it twice.

    • Glad you liked it, elizabeth. 1 down, 49 to go. I’m hoping 50-for-50 in the Like column.

  2. If religion really is the opiate of the masses, then I’d say the speed/downer combo is a win win. A perfect evening out of buzzes.

    That tune got my juices flowing. And by that I mean that it made adrenaline course through my veins. Sorry, I’m being extra literal today because I’m on my man period. I think.

    • There’s no time like the time you wrote this for being extra literal. Man period or no, it’s just something people don’t do enough of these days, or if they do, they do it all wrong:

      “I’m literally on cloud nine!”

      Stupid metaphoric literal strawmen.

      Thanks for the visit, Scott. There’s 49 more of these posts on the way, so pace yourself.

  3. I think I might have liked their grindcore stylings better. But I’m loving your idea for a series and commentary – looking forward to more!

    • You know, I’ve never heard their pre-Bears output so I can’t really state a preference. I’m not much of a metal/et. al. fan so I’m guessing I like this stuff better.

      Thanks for the visit and comment. Dr. C. Just 49 more tracks to go…

  4. Yeah, I probably would like their earlier work better too.

    However, I was able to sit through it without falling asleep or projectile vomiting, so I suspect that probably qualifies it as the 50th best song of 2010.

    • Huzzah! A qualified winner. Presumably it can only go downhill from here…
