Tube Bar Music

A tube bar mix of I Saw Red by Warrent featuring the vocal stylings of the nutty guy who we all love--Red. By Rob Lunceford.

Jimi-J has created two excellent Tube Bar dance mixes in MP3 format: Red 2001.mp3 (3.2 mg) and Red Lives (Tube Bar Dance).mp3 (3.2 mg). And here's a short 30 second bonus: Willie's Song.mp3.

Phil Malkowski has created a Tube Bar Mix of Bruce Springsteen's song "Secret Garden.mp3." It's a really kool MP3.

A fellow named Eddie Yantis has produced a song called Mortal Combat Tube Bar Mix (395kb). Requires RealPlayer.

Scott Kemery has created a program that plays an animated file with sound of Red cursing out the Teletubbies. It's real funny. "redvsteles.exe" runs only on Windows PCs, not Macintoshes.

The Legendary Tube Bar Recording

"I’ll catch you, you cocksucker,
and when I do, boy, God bless you!"

It’s 25-minutes of some of the most hilarious, profane, and spirited cursing you’re ever going to hear.
It’s got some of the world’s nastiest “mother” insults.
It’s the basis for a running joke on The Simpsons.
It features Red, a Jersey City taproom owner and legend, who was once made famous by Jimmy Breslin.
It’s revered in the worlds of professional baseball and alternative music.
It’s the Tube Bar, one of the most astonishing and unusual cultural artifacts you’re ever likely to experience.

"Why you yellow rat bastard, you motherfucker, cocksucker. Your mother’s been sucking my prick for many years… Why don’t you come over and meet me face to face, you motherfucker… I’ll meet you wherever you want."

"When I get ahold of you, I’ll take two zigs outa your two cheeks. You’ll remember me for the rest of your life.…"
