More Info:

The 16-selection They Can't All Be Zingers spans the band's career from 1990 to 2003, featuring all of its original modern rock hits--"Jerry Was a Race Car Driver,""My Name Is Mud,"and the Grammy-nominated"Wynona's Big Brown Beaver'--plus fan favorites and a previously unreleased, extended version of"Shake Hands With Beef."


''They Can't All Be Zingers'' is a greatest hits compilation album by Primus. It was released through Interscope Records on October 17, 2006, the same day that their DVD, ''Blame It on the Fish'', was released.

''They Can't All Be Zingers'' includes 16 digitally remastered songs that span their entire career, including a previously unreleased and extended version of "Shake Hands With Beef", the Tom Waits collaboration "Coattails Of A Deadman", and "Mary The Ice Cube" from the 2003 DVD/EP ''Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People.''

The Best Buy version of the album contains a bonus CD with four rare live tracks ("Those Damned Blue Collar Tweekers," "Bob," "My Name Is Mud," & "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver") recorded at Woodstock '94, including the infamous version of "My Name is Mud" where they were pelted with mud by the audience (in which Claypool responds by informing them of their "small and insignificant genitalia").

The album's title comes from a line from the stand-up act of comedian Neil Hamburger. The CD is packaged with and outer cellophane cover meant to represent a package of individually wrapped single slices of processed cheese. The artwork for the inner booklet and the CD looks like cheese itself. - Wikipedia
