We tried metal but it didn't work, so let us in on the punk rock dough!

I agree, there are SO many great quotes on this CD. I've had this CD for about 8 years nowo and all the dialog STILL cracks me up! I don't even know if I could choose a favorite, it's all so funny, but the "I broke a string!...I mean, I BROKE A STRING!" line is the one me and all my friends loved to run around quoting. We STILL love saying it to this day. It seems to be the most memorable...

Hands down, one of the greatest CDs ever!!!

The title itself is an allusion to Bad Religion's 1993 album "Recipe For Hate" me thinks - one of my favourite bands by the way. They are the Iron Maiden of punkrock with 25 years under their belt and a three guitar lineup in the studio and occasionally on tour, when Mr. Brett isn't too occupied with his "Epitaph" record label.

Nevertheless I had a good laugh reading the title of the first song on Punky Brüster (and during the whole album of course) - and still have. :D

The best part is the wallet chain episode - and it fits not only with the so called "punks", but with the "nu metal" and gothic crowd, too. Fuck, last time I've seen Testament live (Demonic era), they all wore stupid baggy pants and ridiculous wallet chains. So those silly chains obviously are pretty common in metal nowadays, too. Fucking dress codes in the so-called underground scene...

"Do not resist this punk assimilation. I don't think you understand the direction we are headin'."
"I, I do not, sir, explain it to me please."
"It's boot lickin' punk rock."

"Iron Maiden, who are they, I only listen to D.O.A."

"Yeah, you guys got a lot of potential, but, aaa ... you still sound pretty heavy metal ..."
"What do you mean."
"Yeah that's comin' from me, I ... I'm a manager y'know I know this things."

"Now way, we're a band."

"OK, this is our new single, and this goes out to all of ... youuu."

The shit is soooo funny.

As far as I know none of the punky bruster tracks have lyrics which are parodies from other punkrock-bands. I listen to a lot of punkrock, but ofcourse I do not know everything.
Punky Bruster is just a fuck you to punkrock, so I'm guessing most lyrics are written only for that purpose, not to make a parody of exisiting punkrock tracks.

Except of course "Metal Heads are Punk Rockers" that came from the Ramones "Sheena is a Punk Rocker".

Thanks Tracy, I actually wondered about that. :D

I spin this album all the time (especially when my 'Punk Elitist' buddies are over).

I just listened to it again for the first time in years. It's pretty damn funny if I do say so myself.

Little factoid if you didn't know... The answering machine messages are actual messages left by Borivoj Krgin who was the A&R guy at Century Media at the time.

You all know him better now as the dude from Blabbermouth. :P

It's better when it comes from the soul :D

"A Heavy metal... poster?"
"No, don't look at it! It's not mine it's a friend's!"
"A Heavy metal album, Heavy metal book?"
"It's... It's a PUNK BOOK!"

This was the best 16 bucks I ever spent. After I stopped laughing I got all my friends to listen to it and we've been quoting it ever since.

I was at an Ascension of the Watchers (Burton C. Bell's (Fear Factory) side project) show a believe a year ago now. He broke a string while tuning and just utters the punky bruster line "I broke a string... hem... I BROKE A STRING!", it was hilarious... Just thought I throw that out there
