Punch 'Em In The Dick (NSFW lyrics)

Featured Track
August 1, 2008 5:19 AM

Crunk/Southern Club style head banging high energy hip hop track. All vocals by my normal collaberator, Juicy Karkass, and his buddy Savior of Animal Farm

It's about punching people in dicks.

I wanted to hate this, I wanted to have nothing to say, but how can you hate a song with so much dick-punching? Comes across more juggalo than crunk to me, though. And there ain't nothing wrong with that.

Oh sweet Jesus, I would much prefer just Southern Club style or something if it must be pigeonholed.. please no Juggalo..

Hey man, I calls it like I sees it.
posted by uncleozzy at 5:49 AM on August 1, 2008


Well I don't know the bylaws or statutes that Juggalos operate under, nor do I have any understanding or desire to be a part of their culture. But what little information I have gathered from newspaper articles would seem to indicate that you can't be a Juggalo unless you self identify as Juggalo..

So this is just Hip Hop, man.

The maniacal, sweaty insistence with which "punch em in the dick" is proclaimed delivers an overall sense of eagerness and self-satisfaction -- like a punch in the dick is a punch line to life (or a certain lifestyle, perhaps?). Then I end up imagining that I'm on a double blind date with the sister of an annoying co-worker: co-worker and co-worker's girlfriend, co-worker's sister and me. We go to this club and meet up with co-worker/ co-worker's sisters cousin. He's the guy singing this song.

This is actually the exact kind of thing one of my buddies wants to do, his hook line is "If the bitch actin up, kick the hoe in the shin" w/ kick the hoe in the shin being repeated over and over. His other song is called "DUB D Fo Tee" which raps about all the things you can put WD40 on.

I've got, somewhere, a really lousy hip-hop goof about murdering tranny hookers and being knee-deep in their blood that rhymes "ballgown" with "balls down" and "cargo" with "car, ho." I'm not proud of any of these facts.

This is a much better song than that.

Hahah... the best thing about this is that it's actually really well done. It's taken all the way and for that you deserve a lot of respect. I mean that in terms of production and vocal delivery and even lyrically. You weren't lazy with the lyrics, you took it to creative places. I fear this will stick to my brain and I'll go around singing this to myself and hopefully nobody else.

I especially like the NWA reference - "with a right, left, right left you're DICK PUNCHED!". Also, "I punched God in the dick, I punched Mary (?) in the dick, I punched Jesus Christ in the dick" is probably the greatest line in any song ever.

Alright, guess I gotta be the one to transcribe this shit:



Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Fuckers talk shit
I'ma punch 'em in the dick
(Bow!)
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Motherfuckers talk shit
I'ma punch 'em in the dick

Yo look at that chump
See the way that he struts
Don't kick him in the rump
Go nuts on his nuts
Just pop a squat
Start lettin' off the shots
Like knock knock knock
Just coldcocked his cock
Yo, to all the cock-knockers
Nut-crackers
Ball-breakers
Peter-beaters
Keep on boxing your baby makers
With a sock to the jock
Better make that a double
Just a couple of rounds of knuckles
Beneath the buckle and he'll buckle
If you're in trouble
Give him some urine trouble
Hand him his balls
And tell him better learn to juggle
Turn his pebbles into rubble
Make him wonder what might've been
Make it so the South will never rise again

Now every man claims to be the toughest and the meanest
Watch your crocks, because soon the losers will be your weenus
And the winners in all the gladiator arenas
Are always the ones that go straight for the penis

So punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Motherfucker talk shit
I'ma punch 'em in the dick
(B'low!)
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Motherfucker talk shit
I'ma punch 'em in the dick

Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Motherfucker talk shit
I'ma punch 'em in the dick
(Bow!)
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
You motherfuckers talk shit
I'ma punch 'em in the dick

I'll give your willy a welt
Like you ain't never felt
Soon as I'm knelt
I'ma pelt you below the belt
Like Bang!
Bust em' in the wang
Like it ain't no thang
Now you really can't hang

But you ain't gotta be a dude
Shit, I'll dick-punch a chick
Because I don't discriminate
When I punch em' in the dick
Whether Suzie Homemaker or a floozy home-wrecker
I'ma deck'er in the pecker, mother-fecker

It could be your mama
Better be no drama
You could be the Dalai llama
I'ma still put it on ya
With a right, left, right, left
Yo dick punched
Then you say Goddam, my shit's crunched
Scrotum? I damn near killed 'em
I capped him in (?) the boner, man
Forget about children
You ain't got enough kung-fu to bust some ninja shit
Fuck Sun-Tzu, you want to learn the Art of Won

Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Motherfuckers talk shit
Straight punch 'em in the dick
(B'low!)
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
You motherfuckers talk shit
Straight punch 'em in the dick

Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Motherfuckers talk shit
Straight punch 'em in the dick
(B'ow!)
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
You motherfuckers talk shit
Punch 'em in the dick

We
Got
A brand new dance
Called punch his ass right in the dick

We
Got
A brand new dance
Called punch his ass right in the dick

Any of you snotty kids be talkin' shit
I'ma drop a fist on your naughty bits
I got punches a'plentiful
You bet your rear-end it'll sting
When I start swingin' on your genitals
Because then it'll swell up all out of proportion
Lookin' like an eggplant forced into your foreskin
Nevermind abortion
Forget vasectomy
I got your birth-control... B'low!
Nut-check, homey

I punched God in the dick
I punched Mary in the dick
I punched Jesus Christ in the dick
Yo, I punched Cheney in the dick
I punched Powell in his colon
I punched George in his Bush
I punched Condoleezza Rice in the diiiiiick

Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Punch 'em in the dick
(What)
Motherfuckers talk shit
Straight punch 'em in the dick
(B'low!)
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
You motherfuckers talk shit
What, I'ma punch 'em in the dick
Blaaah!

Punch 'em in the dick
(Ungh)
Punch 'em in the dick
(Ungh)
Motherfuckers talk shit
Straight punch 'em in the dick
Blaaah!

Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Punch 'em in the diiiiick
Motherfuckers talk shit
Yo, punch 'em in the dick

Gonna punch 'em in the dick
Watch me punch 'em in the dick
Love to punch 'em in the dick
Born to punch 'em in the dick
Forever punch 'em in the dick
Sucker punch 'em in the dick
Fruit punch 'em in the dick
Hawaiian punch 'em in the motherfuckin' diiiick

"Watch your crotch, because soon the losers will be the weiners."

As excellent a term as weenus is, I don't think it's in use here..

I agree with lumensimus about that correction.

"I capped him in (?) the boner, man" I think is actually, "I done capped you in the boner, man"

"Art of Won" should be "Art of War."

One quibble... when transcribing Southern rap, I much prefer the spelling "Blao!" (There is an "l" in the sound. Consult your Ludacris CDs!)

Anyway, thanks for typing it out. :-)

Nice! CB4's "Sweat from my Balls", Black Sheep's "U Mean I'm Not", CB4's "Straight Outta Locash" - this song isn't as good as any of those, and it's definitely ICP and not crunk (and definitely not a new sub-genre).

The Hawaiian Punch and some of the other lines were awesome though, so it was worth a listen. This would have made a great SNL skit.

I remind everyone this was all done on an emachines laptop.. The idea of video editing on this thing is laughable at best..
posted by mediocre at 6:22 PM on August 8, 2008


Okay, I want to brainstorm ideas for a video..

My simple, unoriginal idea:

Video opens with an unremarkable person being called up for a karaoke song. The song, is Punch 'Em In The Dick. Once the song starts, the footage intercuts between several different people performing the song karaoke style. Some really calm and demure people, some really over the top excited drunken types, really represent the types of people you typically find at a karaoke bar.

Occasionally, the video cuts to the same stage, except with Juicy Karkass, Savior, myself, and a whole crew of people on stage performing concert-style for a group of rowdy kids. Back and forth between the karaoke performers and the actual performers.

This could probably be done in a single afternoon in a single room, which is why I thought of the idea.. anything that can be done quickly and easily..

Any ideas, people?
posted by mediocre at 7:25 PM on August 8, 2008


Any ideas, people?

Yeah - I like your video idea! Hey wait - nobody gets punched in the dick in it?!?! You should solicit people to submit their pictures and videos of them getting punched in the dick(area). Don't even need faces. But somebody - somebody has to get punched in the dick!

I remind everyone this was all done on an emachines laptop.

You definitely get respect for that. Damn.

I like the karoake/concert idea. Especially if you don't show anyone getting dick punched. Because everyone will be waiting for it. Surely they've got to show at least one person getting dick punched?! Then at the end, you should just have one guy walk up to the mic to take his turn wearing a rubber Dick Cheney mask, and then punch him in the face. Now that's what I call a punch line.

"Spirit and liveliness" is a nice way of putting it, flapjax. :-)

Seriously, though, I see your point. When I did that comment-on-every-song-for-a-month thing, I realized that MeFi Music seems to have an unspoken code about not being critical of others' work. (Which is odd, since we have no qualms about criticizing others' interests on the blue, or character/habits/life decisions on the green.) When I had an idea for improving a song, or something specific I wasn't too keen on, I was loath to come out and say it directly -- and, in some cases, I opted not to say anything at all.

It's fascinating that this subsite has (in my view) evolved with such a distinct culture from the rest. I think we've been so starved for more members and songs that we wanted to make the place as welcoming as possible. The flipside is that posts are met with either glowing accolades or silence.
posted by danb at 8:26 PM on August 21, 2008


In the case of most MetaFilter Music songs, I think that the silence is the criticism. No one really needs to vocally shoot down a song that's already been quietly brushed aside.

Here, with the most popular MetaFilter song of all time, there's actually a point to voicing dislike.

A secondary reason that I think you see less vigorous criticism here than in the blue is that here, someone put some amount of work into what they're presenting. However small it may have been, it was probably more work, and more personal work at that, than someone's FPP or long comment. People are less hesitant to dig into something like that, not that what Effigy2000 said was a "dig."

I used to post somewhat regularly to a songwriting site, and it was vicious. People loved ripping into other people's stuff, both with valid and bullshit criticism, especially if they were outsiders. It made sharing your music pretty unpleasant, and they generally drove away everyone but a few musicians that were attuned to the regulars' taste. It was good for the regulars (at least in terms of them getting music and camaraderie), but it didn't make the site a very open place, which I think MetaFilter Music is supposed to be.

So, I don't mind that people here tend to say when they like things and let it go when they don't.

That's pretty cold, ignignokt. And I don't think it's especially accurate. "Most" MeFi songs are not sidebarred. "Most" MeFiMu songs are never listened to at all. They get a tiny percentage of total plays compared to the sidebarred song we're referring to. If "Punch 'Em" and the recently sidebarred tracks from Beardman hadn't been pointed to on the MeFi front page, you think folks would've headed over to MeFiMu and made all those comments, done all those listens, and favorited them that much? No way in hell.

Oh god, this isn't going to be a thing, is it?

I just wanna say, for the record, that I actually carefully considered whether or not to post my comment. I'm aware that MeMu has an unspoken rule and I've bit my tongue numerous times in the past. But this time, I figured that a song that seemed to be so universally popular could probably stand one negative comment. It would also speak for all those who had heard the song, thought little of it but decided not to comment for fear of breaking the unspoken rule (or being branded a troll). And more importantly, it would show other people who hadn't heard the song yet that there was at least one person who didn't think it was great (viva la difference!, y'know?).

But being mindful of the unspoken rule (and the fact that despite my dislike of the song, it's better than any song that I could ever produce), I decided to be as genteel in my criticism as I could and I think I succeeded there, at least.

I certainly hope you don't take this personally, mediocre. You should certainly be proud that so many people here have taken to your song! I guess in the end though hip-hop isn't my kind of music (I'm a rock/grunge/punk kind of guy) and dick-punching isn't my favorite subject matter. But more power and success to you, sir!
posted by Effigy2000 at 11:31 PM on August 21, 2008


One more thing I want to add about my comment... context. It was borne out of a discussion my partner and I had had not one hour before I heard Punch Em In The Dick, wherein I remarked to her my surprise and dismay that the song Shake It by Metro Station was the #1 most popular song on iTunes Australia. In my opinion, Shake It is a terrible song. My partner (who like me is a rock fan) agreed that it seems that the most derivative tunes seem to be getting the most attention these days and I said that it seemed clear that my musical tastes no longer aligned with what most everyone else thought was great. The most derivative, boring, banal and often downright stupid songs seem to blaze up the charts these days and goes on to sell millions of downloads on iTunes, while the truly great stuff goes mostly overlooked.

So then I stumble upon this thread, and everyone goes "Wow this song is so awesome! You should put it on iTunes and retire!" I hit play and find I disagree on the merits of the song. And after some reflection (see my last comment) I end up saying that this song, and it's resulting popularity here on Metafilter, proves once more how my taste in Music differs wildly from that of everyone else.

Which, again, is not meant to be a personal slight on mediocre. Far from it. Just my opinion, is all. I'll go now.

Oh god, this isn't going to be a thing, is it?

All I said was that I hoped it might signal the start of a bit more lively honesty in expressing some negative opinions in MeFi Music. That's all. But, fact is, Effigy, it probably won't be a thing at all, cause it's, you know, MeFi Music. So, I wouldn't worry about it too much! :)
posted by flapjax at midnite at 12:17 AM on August 22, 2008


An explanation for your criticism is totally unnecessary, dude. Frankly, once it came to the attention of the larger MeFi community outside of the MeFiMu folk who are amazingly constructive in their criticism I expected reprisal.. I mean, let's call a spade a spade, this is a monumentally dumb song, but very fun and it goes all the way.. I think that's why it appeals to people, it is totally lacking in self aware irony that probably by all right should apply to a song about boxing phalli.

I almost wish people would be more open here just because the Golden Rule too often leads to 1 or 2 post songs that quickly disappear into the archives after no more then a few scant listens..

I think the difference between MeFi Music vs. MeFi with regards to snark is that here you are front and center with the creators.

I'm all for snark if it is deserving and especially if it's someone being an asshole in some very public way on the internet, and if that's a website or article or something linked on MeFi, it will often bring out the snark because there is some distance there between the snarker and snarkee.

Dumping on someone's song in MeFi Music is a completely different story. My first reaction is that it's lame and turns the snarker into the asshole in the equation. Also, it's much more obvious that if you don't like a song, there are fifty more on the front page to choose from. Unless someone is specifically asking for feedback on arrangement or lyrics or sound, if I don't like something, I just move on to the next one and I think that's perfectly fine.

It shows we respect one another and we especially respect creators that stick their neck out and write and record something from their heart. I think bringing in kneejerk "everything sucks" snark into MeFi Music is not a good thing, but having a criticism-free zone is also less than ideal.

Mostly I just want to say that the first time I listened to this I played it for 10 seconds and I thought it was terrible -- an obvious lame joke parody of some kind of angry white boy rock. Then I listened again a few days later but it was the whole thing and I realized it was way better than the first 10 seconds and deeply hilarious. On third listen I started to catch most of the lyrics and realized holy shit this thing is packed to the gills with cleverness.

It's brilliantly written, and actually too well-written for a one-off joke song. Like, if you wanted to make fun of the genre, they already got the sound and goofy chorus/title of the song right. The lyrics didn't have to be as good as they were to carry off the joke and having them loaded deep with puns and wordplay, every subsequent listen makes me ask how long did it take to put the lyrics together? Did this go from quick joke to what it currently is over the course of days? weeks? months?

It's really fucking good Effigy2000, give it another listen, I swear it's worth it.

Holy cow!

I've been following this thread for a while. When it was first brought to my attention, I could hardly believe it. I'm still really excited about it. I finally used my friend's Paypal account to login here.

I'm so happy that people like this song. It is deliciously ignorant, isn't it? I'm glad some people appreciate all the wordplay. This is nothing but toilet humor, but I did put some effort into making (what I hope are) some clever rhymes.

I will eventually make a video for the song. I'm out of town for a while - school's out for summer! - but when I get back to Portland, Mediocre and I are gonna get it going.

To answer Mathowie's recent question: the song kinda wrote itself. I wrote most of it in a day, probably a couple hours sitting in front of the computer. I went back later and added a few changes. I just woke up one morning with this chorus stuck in my head.

In response to Donpedro's post on August 5th: "I whaled on Moby's dick" is absolutely hilarious. I savored that pun for quite a while after reading it. I almost think it's a good thing that I never came up with that, or I would indeed have been obligated to write an entire verse of animal dick-punches.

I sorta feel the need to clarify that Mediocre is my friend and collaborator, but is only responsible for posting the song to Metafilter. I'm the one doing the vocals, and my buddy Savior made the beat. Reviewing this thread will show that Mediocre has never tried to take any credit for producing this song, but since I was absent from the discussion, it seems that a lot of people have drawn that conclusion. I am super grateful to Kap'n Fulz (mediocre's rap alias) for posting the song up here. I owe him a huge bong-rip for putting me out there. Mediocre and I have done some other songs together, which can be found on my Myspace site.

Another point to clarify: I don't listen to ICP. I don't like ICP. I don't like much new mainstream music period. Nu-metal and southern Crunk rap is often the worst stuff on the radio today. For a song like this, however, I had to go over the top. It isn't intended to parody any particular genre, but "artists" like ICP and Lil John deserve to be lampooned.

One last note: Dgaicun transcribed the lyrics, which was flattering, but not entirely accurate. I could post the lyrics here, but why not go to myspace.com/juicykarkass and read them?

Thanks so much to everyone here at Metafilter, even the critics! The recognition is quite gratifying. Hope I didn't forget anything.

As I was driving today, and the song on random came on my mp3 player, I had a moment of great desire; More specifically, a moment of wanting to create an unofficial video of this song, where Mefites from around the world all get in front of their webcams and crunk for about ten seconds to the song, and then some genius editor puts it all together into the definitive Mefi P'eiD video.

Worst case, if the footage provided didn't fill the whole song, a competent editor could probably intersperse the available clips with some 'Ow My Balls' type stuff off of youtube.
posted by quin at 10:28 PM on August 23, 2008


Whoa there!

Golly! I didn't expect anyone to get their panties in a twist over this! If we're gonna split hairs about who did what, let's lay it all out:

First off, allow me to refer to Mediocre as "Captain," since that's what all our friends have called him since high school. Captain, a.k.a. Kap'n Fulz is my homeboy. We live in the same town. We hang with the same crew of friends. We go to the same bars, sing karaoke together, make rap songs together, smoke herb together, and so on.

Second, Captain did all the production and mixing on this track. I wrote the words about a year ago. Then I met fellow rapper Savior at my community college. Savior had this old beat he made a while back, and Captain and I used it for "Punch Em In The Dick." The vocals had to be compressed, the tracks had to be mixed down, all that technical stuff that I know nothing about. So thanks to Captain and Savior, I had a raw beat and a tight mix.

Mathowie asked Captain, "are you friends with Juicy Karkass?" although I clearly stated in my post above that "Mediocre is my friend" and we "have done some other songs together." I am new to Metafilter, so I am unfamiliar with the criteria one needs to meet in order to take credit for creating a song.

As the lyricist, I just felt the need to step up and get my props, that's all. Didn't mean to downplay all the hard work that Captain put into the production. I also owe Savior a huge debt of thanks for allowing us to use the beat. I hope this clears everything up.

Once again, I'm very excited and grateful to everyone for their overwhelmingly positive response to OUR song!

Ah, that's the missing link. Yeah, that lands us back in reasonably-okay territory.

To be clear, there's been a few instances in the past of people just totally missing the point of Music and posting songs that the just like by people they know or posting songs that they have even less to do with than that, both of which are totally off the mark for what this place is for.

Engineering a song? Not as much of a problem, though it's probably a good idea in general to talk about what your involvement is if it's other than "this is me" or "this is my band" in the who's-on-the-recording sense. Keeps people from getting whiplash-by-omission in a case like this.

But it sounds like we've navigated safely back to okay territory here, so there's nothing left for it but hugs.

It just needs to be remastered for good stereo systems. This was mastered with streaming and MP3 players in mind, so it is brick walled like so many people hate these days. It sounds great until you put it in a nice stereo and all you hear is clipping..

Is the higher quality version coming at some point?
posted by jaduncan at 7:44 AM on October 13, 2008


I'm just ignorant to computers and file sharing. The master version is pretty high quality, but I guess Myspace chops it down when you upload it. How and where I would post the high quality track for downloading, I don't know. Suggestions?

This is genius.

Turn his pebbles into rubble

Is that a Flintstones reference?

Note that the keyword for downloading the ringtone in the US has changed. Text "PEITD" to 41411 to get the link to the ringtone on your phone.

81 downloads so far.

"'Turn his pebbles into rubble,' - Is that a Flintstones reference?"

No, just a way of saying someones nuts, balls, stones, or pebbles will be pulverized, powdered, crushed into gravel. Fuck the Flintstones!

Has a higher quality version of this become available yet?
posted by Darth Meatloaf at 12:34 PM on January 5, 2009


Nope. I'm pretty ignorant as to how I'd go about that. I'd follow whatever simple suggestions anyone could give me.

I'm currently shooting a video for this song right now. Should be done by March 1st, in order to enter in a local short film festival. Hope to show yas when it's ready!

This song became the anthem to a week long trip through NM. One buddy intends to learn how to play this acoustic for a family reunion talent show and to piss off hippies around the house. Fucking magic.

I know I said this several months ago... but the video is almost done! Basically, it IS done, it just needs a little fine-tuning. It will be done by September 1st, but may not be on the internet for a few more days after that. I'm playing a show here in Portland on 9/4 at the Hungry Tiger Too, and it'll be my video premiere show, assuming the booker/club owner isn't a total flake. Anyway, assuming anyone still cares about this song, I'm looking forward to sharing the video with the world.

Welp, the vid is up on youtube now. It's also on my myspace profile. Am I allowed to post those links here? Well, google it, you can find it. Thanks to all you MeFites for all your support and feedback.

..and in dick joke wars (yes it's all you tube and NSFW),
I'll punch Jesus in the dick v Dicks like Jesus:
Big win, imho. Can't believe Avalon didn't make a parody video for his. Really appreciate the kung fu and your crunk rap bits--esp that "Rap Quote" at 2:15!

Just gotta ask..who's kid is that??

That little boy's name is Tyrn, he is 8 years old and the son of one of my friends.

I cannot stop singing this song.

Brilliant work, guys.

5 years later, this song still doesn't disappoint.

I've never gotten tired of this song (or the video) - it's simply perfect.
(And apparently I've never taken the time to say so before, or to fave it - both now corrected. OMG, it's been six years? That's fantastic. It's still in regular rotation in my household... instant mood-lifter!)
