    Does everyone remember 'Nine Coronas'?

    Can you recommend any other songs extolling the virtues of beer?

    Check out Scandinavian, especially Finnish death metal. Otherwise, Alestorm. Drinking songs are not supposed to be sophisticated. "Captain Morgan's Revenge" is indicative of the genre. But Korpens Saga from ur jordens djup by Finntroll is amazing.

    Amon Amarth ain't bad for chugging some ale, although Talking heads - remain in light was on the deck last night.

    Korpiklaani are the daddies when it comes to Scandinavian metal drinking songs.

    You're so right. I had forgotten about Korpiklaani (I like my stuff a bit darker) but they are, as you say, devotees of the genre.

    Their songs aren't about drinking, but Red Fang's music videos are very beer related. If you're into heavy metal check out Prehistoric Dog.

    How about a non-drinking song? Does anyone remember Slim Dusty and "A Pub With No Beer"?

    So....That's why my Granddad liked Mario Lanza so much (and I'm sure he had a copy of the Slim Dusty number...!!)

    Your Granddad was clearly a man of taste.
    Mario Lanza's tavern (bierkeller) song in The Student Prince is not simply a drinking song, it is The Drinking Song. Just to emphasise this, the word "drink" is used 32 times in a total of 192 words - that’s 16 2/3% of all the words.
    A Pub With No Beer is just plain funny.

    I get a slight feeling that I’m not understanding something. The other posts in this thread refer to Nine Coronas, Da Vinci's Notebook, Finnish death metal, Alestorm, Captain Morgan's Revenge, Finntroll, The Macc Lads, The Mahones, Amon Amarth, Talking heads, Korpiklaani, Red Fang, heavy metal, Prehistoric Dog, 7 Seconds Of Love, and Hard Skin.
    In a song or musical context I have never heard of any of these and I’ve no idea at all what they are. Will someone please enlighten me.
