What song is this - has a chainsaw as an instrument

I can't remember any of the lyrics, but there was a song in the early or mid '90s that used a chainsaw as an instrument, it was popular on the alternative rock radio stations all the time.

Any ideas?

"The Lumberjack" by Jackyl

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackyl

I'm actually a bit afraid that I remembered that...

What a great clip w/ Tom Green. Isn't screwing w/ people what his entire MTV show was about? Just pissing them off to the point where they almost hit him? It's good to see it thrown back in his face. He handled it very poorly on air. What a tool.

Yeah, I never liked Tom Green, like him even less now. If I were chainsaw guy, since the desk was already ruined, give it another good whack and say "See ya."

Don't forget to check out Texas Chainsaw Orchestra for some more chainsaw rock (really though).

Funny. Looking at the post, the first thing I thought of was "Close To The Edit" by Art of Noise.

There was a local band in my area around that same time called Chainsaws & Children, whose one and only radio-played song featured your usual grungey guitars along with - surprise! - chainsaws and children screaming.

I used to listen to Jackyl a lot. I still think they would be fun to see live.

Edit: Just watched the Tom Green video. I didn't really like him much before, but that brought my dislike to a whole new level. Considering he does similar crap to everyone else, you'd think he could have handled that better. I also thought just his sense of humor was juvenile, apparently his entire being is as well.

at Tom Green. What hypocritical douchebag. I'm glad his 15 minutes are up.

Jackyl were almost the unofficial Kentucky house band they were here so often in the 90's. Gotta love that redneck stigma we have. I can't say too much, I've seen 'em once or twice and have an autographed CD.

The video:

That was "The Lumberjack," by hard rockers Jackyl...it was on their self-titled 1992, which closed with a quaint little ditty called "She Loves My Cock."

Tom Green is so good at keeping a straight face, I'm not certain it wasn't planned. But I think Tom was even better in that it WAS planned, but he was able to make even the guy in on it question whether Tom was pissed or not.

It's the same thing as The Dude. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

It's a Big Lebowski reference. MWB's response is actually a line from the movie.

Funny thing is, I've never even seen The Big Lebowski.
