Acoustic blues band Dudes on Diesel get no respect at GarageBand.com. Their band info lists San Diego as their hometown; they are currently ranked 124 out of 135 in the category of "Blues." Their "signature review" says, "Was this cat trying to make the worst blues tune ever? Had to be."

According to the band's bio on the site, the band suffered "years o' litigation" regarding the rights to their first, self-titled album, soon to be re-released by Sling a Nasty Pigfoot Records.

Site visitors taking weekly polls voted the band's "Baby Bea" the "Stupidest Song in Blues" for two consecutive weeks in September. An MP3 can be downloaded or played from the site. The sample lyric is "Baby Bea, baby be my blow-up doll tonight."

" 'Be My Blowup Doll' is a bad junior high school masturbation tune sung by a guy who sounds to be in his 30s," writes armondb3 from Neptune Beach, Florida.

The song "Tailpiper" ("I find you on the side of the road, baby, I pick you up / take you with me in my shiny new truck") draws even more criticism.
