The Texas satirical bluegrass group has been performing its barbed and witty observations on the social and political issues of the day since the early 1980s. Here the band takes on topics ranging from the drug and health insurance industries in the title track, the oil industry ("Toast the Earth With Exxonmobil"), credit card debt ("Xmas Time For Visa"), and politics in general ("Arnold," "We've Been Through Some Crappy Times Before").
