Signature song of the Las Vegas alt-novelty combo Tippy Elvis. The band's lineup of instruments -- guitar, drums, keyboard -- was fairly conventional, but the bass lines were supplied by the winsome Ginger Bruner and her tuba. This led to their defiant retort to their critics: sure, maybe we suck, but of all the rock bands in Vegas only we have a tuba. A punk rock tuba, no less.

The song is old school hardcore, Dead Milkmen style; singer Dayvid Figler screeches, growls, spits and yelps over the band's pell-mell performance, and of course the tuba dominates and provides the solo halfway through.

Fuck your guitars
Fuck your bass
Fuck your drums, and
Fuck your pretty boy lead singer

A punk rock tuba
It's mean and it's rude
A tuba...A tuba

Cuz we've got a tuba
A punk rock tuba
It's mean and it's rude
A tuba...A tuba

It's a mouthpiece full of spit
It's got a giant bell!
Press the valves of anarchy
THEN YOU GO TO HELL!!!

Cuz we've got a tuba
A punk rock tuba
It's mean and it's rude
A tuba...A tuba
so Fuck you

...ba.
