Cover Versions: GG Allin’s I Wanna Fuck Myself by Faith No More

So my Faith No More reissue came the other day and I haven’t heard this track in a very longtime! Have you ever listened to this? It was a b-side to one of the singles from the 1995 album King For A Day Fool For A Lifetime which would have to be my fave album by them. It’s on my long list of Classic Albums to write about but first today it’s one for my Cover Versions.

Does anyone remember GG Allin now? He was total nutcase for the 80’s/90’s American kind-off punk music scene. Pretty much all his songs written just to shock and his live shows were performing art of taking all his clothes off, pouring and smashing alcohol bottles over his own head, maybe members the crowds would be attacked, he would shitting and pissing on stage and he’ll want to have sex too etc. He said once he was going to kill myself live on stage too but in the end he just overdosed in someone’s else apartment room. So he was just doing 70’s Alice Cooper‘s shock rock thing but the most extreme version of it in the 90’s but he was imprisonment for this behavior but that didn’t stop he just his own Manifesto while in prison. He father named him Jesus Christ because of a dream about his son being the Messiah or some such rubbish but his older brother always called him Jeje which then just becomes GG. Anyway his catch phrase at the time in early 90’s was “I’m trying to make rock music dangerous again.”

I Wanna Fuck Myself lyrics written by GG Allin

I pull my pud until it bleeds
I masturbate on toilet seats
Girls can’t give me the satisfaction
I fuck my fist to the rage of passion

I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself, fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself

I like the way it fits in my hand
Feel the cock to my burning head
I like to fly on my chest
I fuck myself ’cause I’m the best

I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself, fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself and nobody else

I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself, fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself

I beat myself until I’m raw
Cum and cum till there’s no more
My hand is my favorite whore
Stick my fingers up my ass, beat it some more

I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself, fuck myself
I wanna fuck myself and nobody else

BTW this is the second FNM cover I’ve posted here after The Bee Gee’s I Started A Joke earlier and Mike Patton was on Mark Kozelek’s David Bowie cover of Win too.

  1. I don’t think that is Dean Menta in FNM pic, it’s Trey Spruance from Bungle and Secret Chiefs 3. Great taste in music BTW. I just recently discovered The Drones, cannot believe I missed them until now.

    1. Oh well, that’s a very old blog post to start with! Anyway i am pretty sure that is Dean because Trey was in FNM even less time and only very few photos of him in band, mainly in the studio pics and that’s it. Googling both of them after your comment and looking at images of both blokes, confirming that’s definitely Dean but thanks for leaving a reply! Oh yeah, The Drones are great tooo! Cheers David 🙂

      1. My apologies, I always assumed Trey played the early KFAD shows, as he was on the recording, then Hudson took over. I’m totally wrong, Trey never toured with FNM, it was Dean as you mentioned. I went to that tour when they came to Boston and have always thought it was Trey I saw, bummer. Amazing show though, favorite FNM period, Patton crushed it.

      2. No probs, don’t worry about it man! So yeah, like you just were saying but i did blog about that whole album somewhere? see if i can find it right now for you? i think i did even have a photo of Trey with FNM in that post tooo! https://a1000mistakes.wordpress.com/2017/01/16/classic-albums-king-for-a-day-fool-for-a-lifetime-by-faith-no-more/

  2. I have not read your other FNM post, but I definitely will. I did hear they are going on the road again, Mike was really on his game last with with Dead Cross, so I expect it to be a great tour. Another post seems appropriate 🙂
