Blog A Blog—Whoa-ohhhhhh Black Betty…

RAM JAM— Just another arguably racist, relative-doing, sweaty, mid-western 1-hit wonder from the 70’s…I first heard their version of Lead Belly’s song Black Betty about 19 years ago.  To this day, every time it comes on the radio—my shirt comes off and I crank the shit to 10 before pulling the chord on my break-away slacks…a great tune indeed…

I YouTubed the song today for the first time—19 years in the making!  Terrible...I was hysterically appalled by the footage of these frackin’ donkeys performing one of my all-time favorite tunes.  To be honest, I really wish I never saw this half-assed excuse for a music video…Behold!

*Note: The audio & video are clearly out of sync for your enjoyment…Also, if this video gets ‘yanked by the user’ or whatever the Hell that horse manure is all about, I’m gonna’ speed-bag some Mo-Fo’s…

In 1977, Black Betty became a source of controversy when the NAACP declared the song’s lyrics as being ‘racist’…?  I guess this makes sense considering the lyrics were written by a black guy in the 1930’s—Because we all know that black guys in the 1930’s weren’t big fans of black people—Seriously, I’ve read the lyrics and I don’t see a shred of racism to be found anywhere—just general observations and compliments about this Betty gal…

I really just want to know who was managing those buffoons known as Ram Jam—Sometimes a band manager just has to take the douche-bags that he’s been dealt and figure out a way to make some damn money—Just ask these fellas…

Ironically enough—Ram Jam was also the name of a game that this crew used to play after too many Zimas had been consumed…
