Michael Every couple of decades a truly remarkable artist comes along and captures the zeitgeist of the era. Such philosophical greatness rarely comes along in such an accessible or tangible medium. You'll have Bung on your mind every moment of the day. These melodies are so memorable and catchy, your mind will float away and not want to come back. A Monumental Achievement!!! Favorite track: The Prophetic Tongue of Lord Bung.

I found myself out late one night The darkness ate away the light I was lost and cold, and without time When suddenly it appeared.. Castle Bungenstein! I walked toward the giant door Creaking on the rotten floor I knew that it would soon be time To be a guest at Castle Bungenstein!

DOCTOR STEFFENSTEIN IS AS MAD AS THEY CAN BE HER CREATIONS ARE A NIGHTMARE FOR FOLKS LIKE YOU AND ME CREEPING IN THE DUNGEON A FORCE THAT CAN'T BE SEEN BY NORMAL PEERING EYEBALLS THAT LIVE INSIDE A DREAM WORKING WITH CADAVERS IS NOT A PRETTY SIGHT WHEN DEATH IS HANGING IN THE BALANCE SHE BUILDS ANOTHER LIFE A HULKING MASS OF FLESH IT WAS A HORRID SIGHT TO SEE EVEN BUNGENSTEIN SHRIEKED IN FEAR AND THEN BEGAN TO FLEE SHE KNEW NOT WHAT SHE MADE THE WORLD WOULD BE ENSLAVED 6 FEET IN A GRAVE NO ONE COULD BE SAVED SHE BUILT A MIGHTY LORD AN EVIL ONE FOR SURE THE CURSE HAD NOW BEEN SUNG ENCHANTED BY THE BUNG A SPELL SHOOTS FROM YOUR LUNGS PRAISE TO BE LORD BUNG! A SPELL SHOOTS FROM YOUR LUNGS PRAISE TO BE LORD BUNG! COUNT ZACHULA TOOK A HAMMER AND HELD IT IN THE AIR HE YELLED "I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS, BUT SOMEONE HAS TO CARE" THE PLANET WOULD BE DOOMED, FOR LORD BUNG HAD COME HIS EVIL EYES ARE STARING AT THE CENTER OF THE SUN ZACHULA SWUNG THE HAMMER BACK! IT STARTED TO COME DOWN! BUT STEFFENSTEIN HAD OTHER PLANS AND KNOCKED IT TO THE GROUND! SHE SAID TO ZACHULA WITH AN EVIL LITTLE GRIN "IF HE'S ON OUR SIDE, WE HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN!" DOCTOR STEFFENSTEIN AND COUNT ZACHULA LIFTED LORD BUNG UPON A GURNEY AND WHEELED HIM TO THE CASTLE LOBBY IN A FRENZIED HURRY THE TIME IS NOW! UNLEASH THE BEAST! UPON THE WRETCHED WORLD! OUR PLANS FOR GLOBAL DOMINATION WILL FINALLY BE UNFURLED! LIGHTNING STRIKES THE CASTLE A FLASH OF HAUNTING LIGHT LIFE HAS BEEN BREATHED INTO THE GHOULS OF THE NIGHT LORD BUNG HAS COME THE END IS NEAR SAY YOUR PRAYERS BE FILLED WITH FEAR LORD BUNG HAS COME THE END IS NEAR SAY YOUR PRAYERS BE FILLED WITH FEAR WE SET HIM FREE UPON THE LAND TO TERRORIZE THE PEASANTS WON'T YOU TAKE HIS ROTTEN HAND ALTHOUGH IT WON'T BE PLEASANT LORD BUNG WILL GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE ABYSS INTO THE PROMISED LAND OF CURSED CREATURES CRAWLING MADE OF BLOOD AND SAND

A LEGION DWELLS BELOW RAVING MAD AND FERAL DISCIPLES OF THE BUNG THEY SLEEP INSIDE OF BARRELS OBSESSED WITH OUR DISCOGRAPHY THEY REMEMBER EVERY WORD THEY TATTOOED OUR BIOGRAPHY NERDY SHEEP! SO ABSURD! MINIONS OF THE BUNG CALLED TO DO OUR BIDDING IF THEY SPEAK OUT OF LINE THEY'RE IN FOR A HITTING INFATUATED WITH OUR SOUND CAN'T COMPREHEND WHAT THEY HAD FOUND LIKE JUNKIES FIENDING MORE DRUGS THEY CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THE BUNG! FANS FOR LIFE YOU ARE NOW BRANDED LIKE CATTLE FANS FOR LIFE YOU ARE NOW BRANDED LIKE CATTLE PROPERTY OF BUNG HOLDING CORPORATION! ALL RIGHTS RESERVED! WE OWN YOU LITTLE BASTARDS!

STEFFENSTEIN AND ZACHULA ARE NOW IN GRAVE DANGER! THE BUNG WITCH HAS ARRIVED AND SHE IS FILLED WITH ANGER! THE TWO HAD WRONGED HER BADLY WAY BACK IN THE PAST AND NOW SHE'S BACK AGAIN TO EXACT REVENGE AT LAST! IT WAS DUE TO A POORLY THOUGHT OUT BIRTHDAY GIFT! AN ILL-FITTING SWEATER IT REALLY LOOKED LIKE SHIT! THE WITCH HELD UP HER FINGER AND WIGGLED IT UP AND DOWN SHE SAID "STEFFENSTEIN'S A SINGER SO HOW ABOUT A NEW SOUND?" A MAGIC BEAM SHOT FROM HER HAND AND HIT STEFFENSTEIN IN THE TOOTH NOTHING APPEARED TO CHANGE BUT THAT WAS FAR FROM THE TRUTH! STEFFENSTEIN TRIED TO SPEAK BUT ONLY CROAKS CAME OUT! HER VOICE BOX TURNED INTO A FROG'S RIBBITS COMING FROM HER MOUTH! ZACHULA WAS MAD HIS COMPANION HAD BEEN CURSED HE TRIED TO GRAB THE WITCH BUT SHE FLEW OFF QUICKLY FIRST! WHAT ARE WE TO DO? UPON THE CASTLE LAWN STEFFENSTEIN CANNOT SPEAK BUT SHE IS STAYING STRONG! CURSED BY THE BUNG WITCH! WE MUST RETAIN A LAWYER! CURSED BY THE BUNG WITCH! WE MUST FIND HER AND DESTROY HER!
7.
LORD BUNG BLASTS THROUGH THE CASTLE WALLS! WE CHASE AFTER HIM DOWN THE GHOST-FILLED HALLS! BUNGENSTEIN TRAILS BEHIND AND LETS OUT A MIGHTY HOWL THE WITCHES AND THEIR CATS ARE CHASING HOOTING OWLS! CHAOTIC EVENTS ARE TAKING PLACE CAN'T YOU TELL HOW SERIOUS IT IS THE WORLD WILL BE DESTROYED IF LORD BUNG FINDS THE SWITCHES! NESTLED IN A LITTLE SHACK FAR AWAY, WAY OUT BACK THE DEVICE OF DOCTOR STEFFENSTEIN'S UNWORLDLY CREATION! IT CONTROLS THE MOVEMENT OF THE BEASTS THEIR EVERY THOUGHT, THEIR EVERY MOVE LORD BUNG'S RUNNING TO THE EAST! HE MUST BE REMOVED! BEFORE HE REACHES THE LITTLE SHACK WE MUST CATCH UP AND THEN ATTACK! WE SEE HIM UP AHEAD IN THE DISTANCE! WE HAVE HAMMERS AND KNIVES, NO WITNESS! BUNGENSTEIN FINALLY CATCHES UP SWEATY AS FUCK AND OUT OF BREATH PANTING AS HE LOUDLY SHOUTS "LORD BUNG WILL SOON BE DEAD!" WE APPREHEND THE ELUSIVE LORD BUNG AFTER RUNNING FOR HOURS, IT WASN'T VERY FUN! DOCTOR STEFFENSTEIN TIES HIM UP WITH A ROPE! AND USES HER BUNG KNIFE TO SLIT HIS THROAT! COUNT ZACHULA LOOKS MORTIFIED! BUNGENSTEIN THREW UP A BIT BUT KEPT MOST OF IT DOWN! DOCTOR STEFFENSTEIN HAD SAVED THE WORLD LORD BUNG LIE DEAD ON THE GROUND! SHE SAID TRIUMPHANTLY WITH HER EVIL LITTLE GRIN: TRUST IN US! PROSTHETIC BUNG! WE WILL ALWAYS WIN!

THE SUN RESTORED TO ITS FORMER GLORY HIGH UP IN THE SKY WE'RE NO LONGER DARKNESS DWELLERS AND WE'RE VERY VERY HIGH WE'RE SITTING AT THE DINNER TABLE WITH LORD BUNG AND BUNGENSTEIN EATING FANCY CHEESES TONGUES UPON THE WINE OUTRO: PEACE HAS BEEN RETURNED TO CASTLE BUNGENSTEIN! THE SUN HAS BEEN RESTORED TO ITS FORMER GLORY! THE EVIL WITCH'S CURSE HAS BEEN BROKEN! LORD BUNG WAS MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD! THE CITIZENS OF BUNGTOPIA REJOICE! CLUB BUNG RAISED A FLAG IN THE DESERT IN HONOR OF DOCTOR STEFFENSTEIN AND COUNT ZACHULA'S BRAVERY! FANS AS FAR AS JAPAN CAUGHT WIND OF THE NEWS AND ERECTED A BRONZE STATUE OF THE TWO HEROES! EVEN MR. NECKOFTHEWOODS WAS SPOTTED SOARING OVER MOUNT BUNG CHANTING THEIR NAMES! AND SO, OUR STORY NOW COMES TO A CLOSE. OUR HEROES WALK OFF INTO THE SUNSET WITH BUNGENSTEIN IN TOW! READY FOR THE NEXT ADVENTURE! THE END!
