Looks like the Vietnam War songbook link got cybersquatted. I'm replacing it with a Wayback Machine link.
''Dos Gringos''' origin starts at Luke Air Force Base, where Chris Kurek was first exposed to fighter pilot songs during his training. The instructors had the students sing a song at the bar on Friday nights--but it eventually became apparent that [[http://familymeetingplace.com/racers/songbk.htm most of these songs]] were from the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar and didn't have much relation to the things a modern USAF pilot experiences. That inspired Chris to [[StartMyOwn start writing his own]].

** During [[TheEighties the 1980s]] an [[TruthInTelevision external gun pod for the F-16 that contained the same GAU-8 30mm cannon used by the A-10 was developed and tested]]. It was used in combat by the New York Air National Guard during Operation Desert Storm in 1991 but ultimately was not adopted for general use.

* GargleBlaster: ''Jeremiah Weed'', a drinking song about the eponymous bourbon whiskey liqueur that's 100 proof (roughly 50% alcohol). It tastes ''awful'' (the song describes it as "something in between Lysol and alcohol, with a touch of gasoline"), but the drink is [[http://www.check-six.com/lib/Drinks/JeremiahWeed.htm part of the USAF fighter pilot culture]]. As the song explains, fighter pilots drink it '''''because''''' it tastes so bad.
