Taking a page from Metallica and Guns 'N' Roses, The Butcher Babies - the metal band with the Uber hot dual female singers - have recorded an EP of cover tunes that will bring a tear to the eye of 99X fans that remember the original KTUX - Fun Radio. Titled "Uncovered", this EP features the Napoleon XIV tune "They're Coming To Take Me Away", a song that was played nonstop for days leading up to the launch of what would later become 99X.

Carla Harvey (the Uber Hot brunette frontwoman) comments:

"It was a blast recording songs that we have been fans of our entire lives and putting our spin on them. We all chose a song that had some significance to us. My pick was 'They're Coming To Take Me Away' by NAPOLEAN XIV, because I have a vivid memory of my stepdad, who I considered completely insane, playing it over and over again on his car stereo when I was a pre-teen. The song is about being taken away to a mental institution. I can still see him tapping his fingers on his steering wheel to the beat..."

Hmmmm...I didn't know she grew up in Shreveport...

Heidi Shepherd (the Uber Hot blonde of the vocal duo) adds:

"As an eight or nine-year-old little girl, I used to rummage through my parents' albums and 8-tracks looking for some cool music. In hopes that my parents had at least a little bit of good taste, I would play every single song looking for something that I could latch on to. That's when I came across 'Crazy Horses' by THE OSMONDS; it was the heaviest song I had heard at that age. I would play that song over and over and over again, I was addicted. To this date, it's still one of my favorite songs and reminds me so much of growing up in Provo, Utah."

Here's the entire track list for the new E.P.:

01. Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers (ZZ Top)
02. They're Coming To Take Me Away (Napoleon XIV)
03. Don't Give A Fuck (Suicidal Tendencies)
04. Crazy Horses (The Osmonds)
05. Pussy Whipped (SOD)
