The song "Ode To Sean Hannity", featuring a guest appearance by Jello Biafra of DEAD KENNEDYS, can be streamed below.
Mullin explains the fortuitous inspiration behind the track: "I saw John Cleese from Monty Python on an episode of Keith Olbermann's old MSNBC show a couple years back, where he happened read his poem 'Ode To Sean Hannity' aloud. It was fucking hilarious — the rhythm, or cadence rather, and biting political comedy sounded just like a song Jello and the DEAD KENNEDYS would have written back in the old days. So, when we were getting our original five songs together for what later turned into TEENAGE TIME KILLERS, I put Cleese's poem to music, asked Jello to sing it, he said 'yes' and the rest is history."
