The lyrics are hilarious!!! But for Alestorm this seemed a little disappointing?

While the chorus was OK, the rest was tremendously standard.

Members of Alestorm and Korpiklaani should come together and form the worst mega-band in history.

This is pathetic. I'm not even an Alestorm hater, I can easily admit that Back Through Time was decent album and Captain Morgan's Revenge had its moments but these "fun songs" is what makes this folk metal a joke that isn't funny.

I've been a fan of beer and a longtime fan of this band since they were called Battleheart in 2006, and I find this song to be nothing better than average. I love all Alestorms previous work but I felt like this song was generic and stripped really bare of pirate melodies. The trouble here is more to do with the dip in songwriting and losing touch of their signature sound rather than needing to sound more like Dream Theater!

The words songwriting and Alestorm shouldn't be in the same sentence. Alestorm is about stupidly simple fun music. Exactly what makes this song so good

Hmmm, I don't think the song is bad, but I hope the rest of the album is better than this.

Didn't really get into this band through their previous works but shit changes with this song. Fucking amazing hilarious song/lyrics. Alestorm seems to be the perfect cure to pass the summer heat this year. I find it difficult how people can dislike this song, this one ain't meant to be all complex or impressive, but to be amuzing, just for the lolz. Some people here need to view metal from a less serious attitude. Art is not there just to make people awe or to be disgusted, but to also produce laughter.

I see what you're saying, but consider "Rum". It's clearly an idiot, booze-y track, but it has much more innovative (for Alestorm's standards) and entertaining melodies. I don't think this new one lives up to that, and I'm a big fan of the band
