Does anybody know of any good/funny songs that make fun of bad beer and or its effects.

The current generation is singing "9 coronas", or at least they were 10 years ago.

The be all and end all of these songs may be this: Lloyd George's Beer by Ernie Mayne.
here is a link: http://www.firstworldwar.com/audio/Ernie_Mayne_-_Lloyd_George%27s_Beer.mp3

actual lyrics here: http://www.ww1photos.com/LloydGeorgesBeer.html

I want to hear some more good ones.

Oh, Dear God, send down a dove, with wings as sharp as razors
To cut the throats of all the folks, who sell bad booze to sailors.

You need to look to blue grass, country and the blues for these songs.

Buddy Guy's, Bad Bad Whiskey
John Lee Hooker's, One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.
Thin Lizzie, Whisky in the Jar
Hank Williams Junior, Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound
George Thoroughgood, I drink Alone

Whiskey River is not really about 'bad whiskey' per se. . .

An oldie and goodie though not about bad booze.

Welllllll the whiskey was spilled on the barroom floor and the bar was closed for the night.
Whennn out of the corner crept a little gray mouse and he sat in the pale moonlight.
Wellllll he lapped up the whiskey on the barroom floor and on his haunches he sat.
Aaaaand all night long you could hear him ROARRRRR, "BRING ON THE GODDAMNED CAT!"

(Man, that brings back some memories. :D )

Folk-metal is a subgenre of music I've somewhat recently gotten into. This band, Korpiklaani, does a whole bunch of songs about liquor, drinking, being drunk, etc...

Well, I didn't quite get the folk in that, but it was a good song. I think I'll study Finnish.

Bad booze? Isn't that an oxymoron?

Have you ever drank budwiser?
I have heard on various documentaries about how horrid prison wine is.
In parts of the world where counterfeit liquor is a problem several languages have adopted the term "hooch tragedy" to refer to death or permanent disability caused by drinking poisoned rotgut. This is usually the result of vodka with harmful levels of methanol. Ethanol is a drinkable drug, methanol is a neurotoxin that is sold as a powerful but cheap solvent. I did a 7 page paper on this stuff a few years back and got an "A" on it. If you survive a lethal dose of it you will be utterly and irreversibly blind and often suffer permanent and serious brain damage.

Bamiba, by SSgt Barry Sadler

Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo
(Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo)
Oh, won’t you help me Sergeant get me out of Pleiku jail
I don’t know how I got here; I was drunk on the Ho Chi Trail
It was Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo
(Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo)


I didn’t mean to be drunk
And bringing you all this shame
But I had a fight with a cyclo girl, down in ole Nha Trang
It was Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo
(Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo)

Now this damning jail has rats and fleas
And snakes crawl on the floor
Take me back to camp, Sarge and I won’t get drunk no more
On Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo
(Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo)

There’s VC all around us
It’s looking bad I think
We can’t do a thing Sarge so lets have a little drink
Of Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo
(Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo)

Oh, won’t you help me Sergeant get me out of Pleiku jail
I don’t know how I got here; I was drunk on the Ho Chi Trail
It was Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo
(Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo)
Bamiba, Bamiba, Bamiba, wah whoo
Wah whoo
