The actual Ty Cobb was a fantastic baseball player in the early 20th century, and purportedly had a terrible temper and was a huge racist piece of shit. According to the band, they just used “Ty Cobb” as place-holder of a symbol that everyone would know as a notorious piece of shit. It’s not really about baseball, the lyrics aren’t “I’m hitting/ fuck you all” it’s “hard-headed fuck you all.” Hey, at least he’s got a stubborn cardio-punk song to his name.

Have you thought about doing "Beyond the Wheel" from Ultramega OK? Or "Ugly Truth" from Louder Than Love :-)

 

Awesome work, thank you so much!

Not really related to the song, but most (if not all) of the stories of cobb being overtly racist were either exaggerated or entirely made up.

 

He was definitely generally violent, however.

Or "Nothing to Say" from Screaming Life? LOL okay I'll stop now :-) If you can't tell, I'm a real big fan of their early stuff. I had lots of fun jamming out to the ones you've done already, and I really appreciate your work.
