Unlike most tribute records, Alpha Motherfuckers contains bands far more popular than Turbonegro (Queens of the Stone Age, Nashville Pussy) along with obscurities from all over the globe (Brazil's RDP, Norway's Amulet). The American bands all turn it up to 11, with Zeke's screaming version of "Midnight Nambla" leading the way. The joy of singing Turbonegro's outrageous homoerotic anthems seeps through tracks like the Real McKenzies' "Sailor Man." Even Orange County geezers ADZ get in the act with "Good Head." But it's the European bands that have the goods on their denim-wearin' homeboys. Norwegian Black Metal-heads Satyricon salute their fellow countrymen with a double-bass/synth rave-up, "I Got Erection." Even further from left field (and the album's best track) is the S&M duet "Are You Ready (for Some Darkness)?" turned in by Bela B. & Denim Girl. Sounding for all the world like Bauhaus-era Peter Murphy putting the moves on Shirley Manson in an East End fetish club, this exceedingly catchy goth-rocker would inspire millions of arty death chicks to rip down their Marilyn Manson posters if it ever found its way onto radio.
