When Pigs Sing
SMN reports: The following is a rundown of today's (Nov. 30th) Howard Stern Show courtesy of a fansite: [Howard] said that someone sent them a letter about a band called CANINUS who use a pit bull as their singer. He had some of their album so he played that and you hear a dog growling to their music. He played a couple of their songs and Robin said that they had to have made that up. Howard said it was legitimate and not a goof though. 

Richard came in and said that it's actually a side project of a metal band and it must be one of the guy's pets. He said there's another band that has a parrot as a lead singer. Howard asked about the band where the singer snorted like a pig. Richard said that was a guy snorting, not an actual pig. Howard had one of their songs so he played that as well saying that it's really fascinating to him. He doesn't understand it.... SIX FEET UNDER is willing to do the show but Howard said they've been getting a lot of mail from fans telling them not to have them on. They can't take more than a few seconds of their songs.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
