[quote author=calvin2hikers link=board=rant;num=1093033624;start=0#6 date=08/20/04 at 20:36:44]The Mammy Anthem.<br>[/quote]<br>Good pick.  Also "Stevie's Spanking" would be a good candidate for his most metal song, even though I don't necessarily think it's one of his heaviest songs.  It sounds too thin and calculated to really be "heavy" to me.  My pick is probably "I Come From Nowhere."  The day I bought Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch, I was surprised by how heavy that album was.  I think Scott Thunes' bass adds a lot to the heavy sound the band had then.

what 1st came to mind was porn wars, even heavier than one of zappa's heavy guitar solos or songs; agree with the aforementioned rat tomago & filthy habits, and like to add transylvania boogie, chunga's revenge, do not pass go , black napkins & maybe even a little dumb all over to those, but put them in a heavy guitar-centric category... need heavy lyrics/vocals to have a heavy impact

zardoz; don't agree on the torture choice, the beefheart rendition is too bluesy to be heavy, the original torture as number 2 on the fz heaviosity list ... same category as heavy dudy judy & stevie's spankin

Magic Fingers!<br>Five Five Five!<br><br>I Come From Nowhere was also a good suggestion from the earlier post.<br>Perhaps there's a band out there that can make The Handsome Cabin Boy into a heavy little number...   That one has hidden potential.

There are some tunes that are heavy in the sense that they're such a tour de force that they drain you as a listener, but in the hard rock sense, I'd have to give this one to the classic "Transylvania Boogie".
