Primus landed in a bizarre, [[UnknownRival one-sided]] feud with Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum in 1995, due to their absurdist country-funk-metal single "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver". Les went to great lengths to point out that the song is not, emphasis '''''not''''', about Creator/WinonaRyder - the spelling and pronunciation are different, not to mention the fact that the lyrics make no sense. Ryder didn't mind, but her boyfriend Pirner did, and even renamed one of his songs "Les Claypool's a Big Fucking Asshole" in concert. The correct title should have been "Dave Pirner's a Big Fucking Asshole Who Doesn't Know What the Hell He's Talking About".

The result is a weird and compelling fusion of HeavyMetal, FunkRock, ProgressiveRock and RuleOfFunny.

* IndecipherableLyrics: "Pork Soda" (the title track of said album) consists of this is ranting form. The CD's liner notes omit the lyrics to this song, and barring the ACapella chorus they are completely unintelligible - if one looks them up on any lyrics site, only the first few lines of each verse is written down, and those lyrics make no sense.
