"Tv Dinners" as written by and Frank Lee Beard Billy F Gibbons....
TV dinners there's nothin' else to eat
TV dinners they really can't be beat
I like 'em frozen but you understand
I throw 'em in and wave 'em and I'm a brand new man oh yeah!

TV dinners they're goin' to my head
TV dinners my skin is turnin' red
Twenty year old turkey in a thirty year old tin
I can't wait until tomorrow.... and thaw one out again oh yeah!

TV dinners I'm feelin' kinda rough
TV dinners this one's kinda tough
I like the enchiladas and the teriaki too
I even like the chicken if.... the sauce is not too blue.

And they're mine, all mine, oh yeah
And they sure are fine.
Gotta have 'em
Gimme somethin' now.

    General CommentI believe this song was one of the first they used keyboard/ synthesizers. It also was a break from the standard three females and the infamous car type videos. Around the same time frame Van Halen's Jump (another song that was not typical for the Van Halen Boys - synthesizers).

    General CommentWell, not exactly sure what this about other than t.v dinners and their odd qualities. But it's one of my favorites by them.

    General CommentThis song was an early MTV hit. All I remember was the cheap-o stop motion animation of some 'food monster'. It was so bad it was good. I think the lyrics are about being stoned on drugs and having the munchies. TV dinners a long time ago were covered in foil and you never had a clue what was under the wrapper. Sometimes it wasn't pretty. I wonder if it's hard to eat with all the beard on your face? Do you think they covered their beards with a big napkin? I think I'd wear a ski mask. I heard that the drummer only wanted to play golf and they pretty much used a drum machine for all their albums in the 80's. That would make sense because he sounds like crap.

    General CommentHenry "The Bull" del Toro and Jimmy Ray Dunn did a cover of this called "puppy livers." Pissed of a lot of PETA types. The Bull then raised money for the Norfolk,VA SPCA for spending 3 days in a dog kennel.
