Yidcore - They Tried to Kill Us, They Failed, Let's Eat!

Maybe it's the zeitgeist. First I document 'Good for the Jew's' fabulous "They Tried to Kill Us, We Survived, Let's Eat," arguably the funniest Jewish song since Adam Sandler's Channukah song. (Ok, the Hip Hop Hoodios "Kike on the Mike" and "Dicks and Noses" rank up there too.) And now, Australian punk pranksters YidCore come out with "They Tried to Kill Us, They Failed, Let's Eat!" There's no relation between the songs, as far as I'm aware. Just a fine Jewish sensibility, instead of crying in our beer....we whoop it up at brunch.

And YidCore's song is pretty funny too, but in a much darker way. Check it out. L'Chaim!

They Tried To Kill Us. They Failed. Let's Eat!

Oh, and by the way, two animated Jewish music videos in one week. First the Marc Chagall documentary video and now Yidcore. Hmm... I love the smell of zeitgeist.
