The Cast of Cannibal! The Musical
"Hang the Bastard!"

For those of you uninitiated into the South Park universe, Cannibal! The Musical is the first film made by future South Park co-creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The story is about Alferd Packer and his trial for cannibalism in 1883. Of course, the only way to truly tell such a gruesome story would be in the musical tradition of Rodgers & Hammerstein, etc.

This song comes near the end of the movie. Packer has been found guilty and is sentenced to death. The whole town gathers together to watch the execution and calls for the death of Packer in song and dance. There isn't any cowbell in the song until there is a call for a "cowbell solo!" This "solo" is a solo in the fact that it is played alone and without any other instruments, but it doesn't really follow the song's structure, tempo or melody at all. It's just some guy in a tree banging on a cowbell, which is hilarious.

The Bell Score: 2.01372
