Today was a Day for "Prairie Home Invasion" by Jello Biafra/Mojo Nixon (1994)

"Are You Drinkin' With Me Jesus?" from 1994's Prairie Home Invasion:

Mojo Nixon, king of Texas Alternative Goof Roots Psychobilly (TAGRP), and Jello Biafra, of Dead Kennedys fame, put out this fine album in 1994. Jello doesn't need any introduction and remains active as a recording artist to this day (new album out in October of 2009), and is highly visible in his Green/lefty political circles. [And down the line maybe we'll investigate the current status of the Jello/DK back catalogue dispute and repercussions.] On the other hand there is Mojo Nixon. Somewhat of an Underground Shitkicker College Radio Star (USCRS) in the mid 80s and into the 90s, he had two minor hits with 1989's "Debbie Gibson Is Pregnant with My Two-Headed Love Child” and 1990's "Don Henley Must Die". He is mostly retired as a recording and touring artist, though in late 2009 he did release a digital-only album of "lost hits" and performed a handful of shows to promote the release. In addition, he has a weekly radio show on Sirius radio on the "Outlaw Country" station. Here is a live version of "Don Henley Must Die" from 1994:
