From 1974 to 1976, The Residents were working on one of the most brilliant albums in the history of music: The Third Reich 'n' Roll. It contained two 18-minute suites composed of various pop songs from the 60's. The catch: they were all completely deconstructed, and some of them were practically unrecognizable.

To promote that album, The Residents released a single called "Satisfaction", a cover of The Rolling Stones' hit. Like in The Third Reich 'n' Roll, the song was completely mutilated: instead of Keith's cool guitar riff and Jagger's great vocals, we got Snakefinger's crazy guitar solos and (probably) The Residents' singer screaming some different lyrics in a way that's impossible to fully comprehend. It still remains one of the greatest Residents tunes of all time, and it sounds like it came straight from the depths of Hell itself. Simply fantastic.

The B-side, "Loser = Weed", is a Residents original, and is also one of their greatest. It's catchy, it's crazy, and there's synth patterns all over the place. It sounds creepy, but the silly kind of creepy. When the song is over, you can't help but ask yourself if these guys are really being serious or if they're just screwing around and having fun. Probably a bit of both.
