You're going to lose

So, today's pun, I actually had a couple of routes to go. We're going to look at Truckfighters, all the way from Sweden. I went with an image of a drunk dude trying to have a fist fight with a speeding mack truck and... well, you can imagine where that image goes. Alternatively, I just realized that their name could also refer to some future sport like polo/jousting on trucks instead of horses, and with chainsaws instead of lances or golf clubs. If that is the case, then I can tell you right now, Truckfighters are the coolest band in the world, even if you've never heard them.

I mean come on... chainsaw jousting in a pickup truck?

So, the future-sportists formed in 2002 in Sweden. They quickly released and EP, followed by the '05 release of Gravity X and later followed by the '07 release Phi.

Listening to the boys, you can hear obvious tones of Fu Manchu, Kyuss, and the usual fuzzed-out stoner rock brigade. But why take my word for it:

-Once screamed of carnal sin, but now it's gone quiet
