YMMV / Anal Cunt

  • Crosses the Line Twice: Everything.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Reportedly, Putnam-after coming out of his coma-played "You're in a Coma" and "Pull the Plug" as soon as he was out of the hospital. He was still partially paralyzed during his performance.
  • Face of the Band: Seth Putnam, its only consistent member. After his death, the band broke up.
  • Fair for Its Day: Over the years, it's become less common and acceptable to use the word 'gay' as an insult. With the amount of songs calling things gay, A.C. arguably might have gotten more offensive over time. At the same time, however, calling things "gay" or "queer" is still very common in New England (even among LGBTQ individuals, which has been noted by many a resident and visitor alike), so it may be a case of "still acceptable on their home turf, unacceptable elsewhere".
  • Misaimed Fandom: A portion of their fanbase is completely unaware that it was all a joke or simply couldn't care less.
  • Narm Charm: Part of their appeal to metalheads.
  • Older Than They Think: Many believe that Anal Cunt took their name from a GG Allin song... which was recorded five years after they formed. In fact, Allin may have named the song after them - at any rate, he was familiar with the band at some point, as he once proposed they become his backing band.
  • Snark Bait: Frequently, the band has been lashed out by many critics for deliberately putting out offensive and terrible music when they really don't know that it's all done as a joke.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The entirety of the "Howard Is Bald" revolves around the band members incoherently wailing drunken lyrics about Howard Wulkan's baldness - which ends up being exactly what makes it so entertaining.
