    General CommentI think this song is a slap in the face to people who dont take aids seriously. The music they play is like carnival cheesy music, kind of like a joke. And thats how alot of people take aids. They dont think they will get it and dont take it seriously.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song just came about by Gene and Deaner sitting in the studio thinking to themselves "what's the most offensive song we can possibly make?" they sure pulled it off!

    General CommentI actually think the silly music backing track interspersed with the "AIDS", "HIV" bit is a message for you to have fun, enjoy yourself - but remember there's stuff like AIDS and HIV waiting to trip you up if you're not careful.

    Ween also do songs that talk about gay people and the gay community quite frequently (in a sympathetic light, for all the inevitable homophobes reading), and I wouldn't be surprised if this one is connected.

    General CommentI don't see why people consider this offensive at all. It's not like they're saying "Aids is Great! HIV Rules!" They're just using 2 words.

    General CommentExactly ^

    There is nothing offensive other than the fact that its played with cheery music.

    There are plenty more offensive songs out there.

    General CommentApparently, Chocolate and Cheese's cover was originally going to have a "gay sailor" theme. And this song is why that cover was rejected.
