I'm The Slime

A song by FRANK ZAPPA released on Over-Nite Sensation.

While part of ZAPPA's one of the most easiest and accessible albums, he's never without social commentary. The spoken word lyrics are almost like an lecture, powerful and still relevant as ever. One of the earliest rock critique about TV predating PINK FLOYD's ``15 channels of shit'' by 6 years and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN's ``57 Channels'' by 19 years.

Backing vocals are by TINA TURNER and THE IKETTES. The legend tells that when IKE TURNER heard some of the material during the sessions, his comment was ``What is this shit?'' and wanted the band not to be credited on the album.
