* EstablishingSeriesMoment: Put off by "Philosophy of the World"s arrhythmic beat, sing-speak vocals and hopelessly amateurish instrumentation? Well get ready for ''eleven more tracks'' of it.

The Shaggs had [[SoBadItsGood an unusual approach]] at making pop music. Not only did their instruments sound blatantly out of tune, but their limited ability caused each member's individual performance to seemingly follow its own time signature. Each individual note matched up to every syllable they sang, and, in general, it all added up to what the average person would hear as a lot of disorganized sound. Despite all this, the band have developed [[CultClassic a small cult following]] as well as some good reviews over the years (amongst them being no less than Lester Bangs, [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]] and Music/FrankZappa), with many praising the honesty and humanism of their lyrical content. Nowadays they are seen as a prime example of OutsiderMusic.

* CoverVersion: Of [[Music/{{Carpenters}} the Carpenters]]' "Yesterday Once More." By the time this was recorded, they could keep together reasonably well, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BkUFmjz-Ek it was still unmistakably the Shaggs.]]
