Win tickets to see Dead Milkmen in Tampa!

March 5, 2014

Well, I suppose if that Dead Milkmen show had to move to Tampa, the best consolation prize for a couple Orlando residents would be to win free tickets. I’ve got a pair to give away to one lucky winner. Here’s how it works:

  1. Comment below with the name of your favorite Dead Milkmen song and the reason why it’s your favorite. Be as brief or verbose as you like.
  2. The winner will be selected randomly on Friday, March 7 at 5 p.m.
  3. I’ll respond to your comment if you’re the winner with an email address to message to claim your prize.
  4. If you don’t claim your prize by Monday, March 10, another winner will be selected.

The show is 7 p.m. April 12 at the Brass Mug in Tampa. (RSVP here!)

    Jason’s Head is my favorite because it gets stuck in my head but my name is not Jason.

  • Vicki Landon

    How could you possibly pick anything other than Bitchin’ Camaro? :)

  • GO2Q1

    My favorite is “Stuart” because it’s the only song I’m aware of that mentions the illustrious Burrow Owl.

  • Alison Shackelford

    Punk Rock Girl, because DUH!!!

  • Leah

    Methodist Coloring Book

  • Jessica Spink

    filet of sole because it makes me lose control.

  • Sam Hughes

    Also name drops Jon Wurster before John Wurster was cool.

  • Sam Hughes

    Nutrition, because what’s more punk rock than being a slacker that refuses to move out of your parents house because of the stocked pantry? Nothing, that’s what.

  • dainon

    “Punk Rock Girl” is forever on loop through this big music-loving head of mine. Plus, rhyming “Minnie Pearl” with “fudge banana swirl” is nothing short of genius!

  • Thunder Sack

    Tiny Town off of Big Lizard in my Backyard. Such good memories.

  • Jordan Duttinger

    Serrated Edge is my favorite not only because it mentions building churches on hilltops and worshiping Charles Nelson Riley which are right up my alley. But recently roots got in or drain pipe and I had to rip the toilet up and I couldn’t piss or shit and this song was in my head the whole time.

  • Michael Love

    I Walk the Thinnest Line – This song reminds me of the weird crap you would do to entertain yourself whilst living in a crappy suburb as a lone punk rocker.

  • christina snyder

    Bitchin camaro

  • Mike Tharney

    Punk rock girl. It is the song that led me to my beautiful wife. I would love to take my punk rock girl to the show.

  • Shawn McNulty

    Girl Hunt because it set the bar for me. Also, Smoking Banana Peels. It taught me at a young age that just because a band I love sings about doing something, it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. Even drunk. Especially drunk.

    Laundromat song

  • Kyla Swanberg

    “Detachable Penis” is one of my favorite DeadMilkmen songs!! Amongst many other songs, this one makes me roll on the floor laughing with my dad while growing up. Can’t imagine what that would be like live. :D

  • Michael Davis

    Erm, I think you’ll find that “Detachable Penis” is a King Missile song.

  • Michael Davis

    “Stuart” because its basically sung by what is now the Tea Party.

  • Ashley at Orlando Weekly

    Bitchin’! You won a pair of tickets to see Dead Milkmen in Tampa! Please email me at to claim your prize before 5 p.m. Monday, March 10. Thanks for playing!

  • Rodney Anonymous

    Don’t feel too badly Kyla, we’d rather be know for a great song that someone else wrote than a crappy song that we wrote

  • Adam Fair

    “not crazy” for the line “feeling the meat on my cat, wonder what it would be like to cook her, but i won’t cause that would cause a terrible fuss among my friends”.

  • Tony Vincenti

    “City of Mud”, because that’s the title of the Dead Milkmen related book I wrote (find it in the Amazon store). It’s about a group of Dead Milkmen fans who traveled to Philadelphia in 2004 to the Dead Milkmen Reunion/Dave Blood Tribute Shows.

  • BigTimeOperator

    You’ve obviously have never heard Smokin’ Banana Peel. The first three words are “burrow owl burrow owl burrow owl”. It’s a shame someone who was completely wrong got the tickets.

  • Kyla Swanberg

    Yikes! My Bad. My mp3 from years ago had it wrong all along!
    I love the song “Takin Retards to the Zoo”. Ultimate classic! Punk Rock Girl always had me at “If you don’t got Mojo Nixon, than your store could use some fixin!!” :P
