Bugs in Your Chin Wig

“I wrote the song when he was on that Rock Star Supernova show,” says “Dangerous Dave” Swain of local punk-rock trio the Bugs. Swain’s talking about their controversial track “Dave Navarro’s Goatee Fucking Sucks.”

He used to be in Jane’s Addiction/ Now he’s on TV trying to earn a buck
He was so much cooler when he was on drugs/ Dave Navarro’s goatee fucking sucks

“All that makeup and jewelry,” says Swain, “what a jerk. Where the hell is he getting off wearing all that crap? He’s so full of himself. Anyone with any soul would want to tell him to go [screw] himself.”

The Bugs may have a problem with their video for the song, which features a couple dozen enlarged photos of Navarro on a screen behind the group as they mock his facial hair. “I keep waiting to hear from his attorney about the video,” says Swain. “I’m sure they wouldn’t appreciate us using his pictures without consent. If they do email me, I’m printing it in the insert of the next album.”

With tours booked around California and overseas, are the Bugs worried about running into the rock star? “I’m really not the fighting type. But if he came at me, he’d definitely get a little chin music. I don’t really want to [meet him]. He may try to French me.”

The band’s other songs include “No More Emo Haircuts,” “Meth on My Mind,” “Lesbo Lesbo,” and “Email From a She-Male” (also an amusing video).

Clocking in at around two minutes each, the songs will appear on the Bugs’ upcoming Cabana Records seven-inch vinyl album. “Yeah, that’s right, the whole album fits on a seven-inch. And there’s still room for another song or two!”
