#4. Snailface – “In Herzog’s Headphones”

This is likely not the first song about Timothy Treadwell, aka The Grizzly Man, but it may be the first one that pairs his death with a tune that sounds like a The Cars covering a mid-80s .38 Special song. But more than just being about him, “In Herzog’s Headphones” is sung from Treadwell’s point of view, a love song to the bears that killed him. It’s devastatingly funny, and the tacked on one line apology to Amie Huguenard (Treadwell’s girlfriend who shared his grisly fate) is the cruelest laugh on an album full of them.
