The Penguin Disagrees - The Penguin Disagrees is a band from Oxford, England. It was initially set up to confuse people at open-mike nights, but has since developed its musical scope and willingness to try new things while remaining true to its roots: We write songs, the penguin disagrees; we add a cheeky latin beat or a flute solo, the penguin is placated.

Thank you for revealing what the judges think is "real". Apparently music, to be accepted, must be fantasy or detached in some way. There are many forms of control and categorization on the net and you have brilliantly displayed the interconnection of two of them through the moronic brains of whoever is deciding the categorization of songs on this site. I applaud you (and would definitely like to take off my Che shirt for you!).

I was a a festival in a small town recently and I saw no less than 5 Che t-shirts. I wanted so bad to run up to these folks and sing this song, but I couldn't remember the #@&%!ing words

Too rich. You may have arranged the lyrics better, but it might have taken away from the 'straight from the textbook' schtick youve got going on. What it lacks it makes up because its so brilliant.

Great song. Very funny and orginal. This is great satire and commentary. Che was a killer, the irony is precious.

A further argument for the removal of the "rejected" section. Thanks for having fun with music!
The harmonica solo is beyond perfect!! What a sweet song!
Is this from your upcoming "Wikipedia" album ... ?

it's a history lesson. it's a social commentary. it's a love song. it's a tongue twisting vocal warmup exercise.

all the lyrics you can eat PLUS a harmonica solo at the end. What more could one ask for. This song does it all.

Doesn't have the catchy chorus of Haggis, but it's more interesante.

How many takes did it take to read through the biography of Che, before you got it right? I want whatever you guys drink or smoke when you do music.

winner by lack of competitions ability to buffer its song in adequate time. I ilke the acoustic beginning and music as a whole, but lyrics seem presed to fit at times.

Che Guevara T-Shirt... What the fuck is that all about?
Do you even know who he is? Are you some kind of Communist?
He's become a logo printed on your chest,
Do you really feel safe with a revolutionary touching your breast?

No it's not Fidel Castro, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix or Jesus Christ.
No it's not Mao Zedong, Ronald Regan, Margaret Thatcher or Hugo Chavez.

Why am I getting so upset about a T-shirt?
Let me tell you a little something about Che Guevara...

Ernesto Guevara de la Serna (born June 14, 1928), commonly known as Che Guevara or el Che, was an Argentine-born physician, Marxist revolutionary, politician, and Cuban guerilla leader. As a young man studying medicine, Guevara traveled "rough" throughout Latin America, bringing him into direct contact with the poverty in which many people lived. Through these experiences he became convinced that only revolution could remedy the region's economic inequality, leading him to study Marxism and become involved in Guatemala's social revolution under President Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán.

Sometime later, Guevara became a member of Fidel Castro's paramilitary 26th of July Movement that seized power in Cuba in 1959. After serving in various important posts in the new government and writing a number of articles and books on the theory and practice of guerrilla warfare, Guevara left Cuba in 1965 with the intention of fermenting revolutions first in the Congo-Kinshasa (later named the Democratic Republic of the Congo) and then in Bolivia, where he was captured in a CIA-organized military operation. Guevara died at the hands of the Bolivian Army in La Higuera near Vallegrande on October 9, 1967. Participants in, and witnesses to, the events of his final hours testify that his captors summarily executed him, perhaps to avoid public trial followed by imprisonment in Bolivia.

After his death, Guevara became an icon of socialist revolutionary movements worldwide. An Alberto Korda photo of Guevara has received wide distribution and modification. The Maryland Institute of Art called this picture "the most famous photograph in the world and a symbol of the 20th century."

Che Guevara T-shirt, the fuck is that all about?
Now you know who he is, are you some kind of Communist?
Or did you buy this T-shirt because it looked kinda cool?
Or want to buy into a revolution,
Made in a sweat shop by Latin Americans?

So now you know about Che Guevara,
Will you go to bed with me?
I'll take off your Che Guevara T-shirt and
Have my wicked way with you...

And after you've screamed out:
"Hasta la victoria sempre"
We can lie together
And discuss Evo Morales
