Butcher Pete

The soundtrack to Fallout 3 is pretty amazing, but the song “Butcher Pete” made me immediately stop playing and listen to the entire thing. I had heard of Roy Brown before but I had never heard him sing “Butcher Pete.” I was enthralled by it. It was stuck in my head for days. In Fallout 3 the song mentions there is more to the story/song, but GNR doesn’t play it. I had to look for both parts. I needed to hear the full song.

Here are both parts of “Butcher Pete”. The other strange thing about the songs is that the more I listened to it, the more I was sure that I had heard it before.

The Cramps actually covered it in 2003. Now I’m a big fan of the Cramps. I liked their version of the song, but now that I’ve heard Roy Brown’s version, the cover just pales in comparison. Still it is an interesting take on the song.
