Monday Morning Sizzle: The Best of Bacon Songs

Posted By on Mon, May 2, 2011 at 8:30 AM

Dudes! How ya been?! I haven't seen you guys in a hot minute, what you been up to? How was your weekend? Mine was pretty chill — I ended up at a beautiful wedding out in Normandy before driving the back roads up to Center Hill Lake. I thought my adventures beyond the Davidson County line — who knew there was such a place? — were going to include a little more culinary excitement to relate back to you guys, but the only real food-thought I had this weekend was, "Do miniature Frenchmen make miniature quiches?" Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the grub, but it was the kind of fare that leaves you plenty of time to think of dumb questions. Then again, I do tend to be an endless font of dumb questions.

So anyway, I got home, saw this post and promptly fell into an Internet wormhole and have only now resurfaced from my quixotic quest to find the best damn bacon songs on the Internet. Ends up most songs about bacon on ye ol' tubes just plain suck. Seriously, while I get that the topic can be inspiring, the bacon-as-punchline school of songcraft is just plain bullshit. Show some respect people! Bacon is serious business.

So here's the baddest porkbelly beats on the whole wide web. Please note that the song "Bacon Fat" shows up a bunch of times — that's because it's one of the greatest songs ever written. Don't know what else to tell ya.
