Wheeler Walker Jr., is a reclusive country singer obsessed with jerking off. Actually he’s the persona of stand-up comic Ben Hoffman, former host of Comedy Central‘s The Ben Show. Walker just released his debut album Redneck Shit. The album is a potty mouth collection of country songs about bad sex and broken hearts with song titles like Fuck You Bitch, Better Off Beatin’ Off and Which One O’ You Queers Gonna Suck My Dick? If you can get past the insane titles and lyrics there are some real country songs in there. Ben told Rolling Stone about his filthy songs,
“I was doing an interview on the radio the other day and I said to the guy,
‘Do you think the album is offensive?’ And he goes, ‘It sounds like you’re singing the way people talk.’
So why can’t I fucking do it? Country radio is so fucking shitty. Garth [Brooks] sounds like fucking Hank now. How many times have you heard someone say, ‘I like all music, except for country’? Every time I hear that, it pisses me off. I’d be upset if people thought I was making fun of country music or rednecks with this record. I am a fucking redneck, these are my people and I love country music. You can’t make a record like this without loving country.
It wasn’t my goal to go in the studio and fuck with those people. I just wanted to make a good record and do it balls-out. … I just wanted to make a real country record. . . I got my ass handed to me my whole life and this is the record that came out. “Fuck You Bitch” is serious shit. “Can’t Fuck You Off My Mind” is a regular country song.
If someone put in a machine, ‘What’s the way to sell the least amount of country records?’ I did that. I pissed off every group.“
