Ah, Fishbone. How could you resist the infectious ska-funk sound, the in-your-face lyrics, the horn section? When you are having a bad day or suffering from road rage, singing along to Ugly at top volume, and picturing the day’s worst offenders as your audience, will relieve stress and boost your spirits. You may even manage to restrain yourself from displaying your frustration to the little old lady who was blocking two lanes and driving ten miles an hour below the speed limit. Good music is just that strong.

The song was on their self-titled, 1984 album, along with that song about a mean woman that lies, the name of which I can’t spell out on a PG-rated blog. Ugly also appeared on their 1996 compilation “Fishbone 101 – Nuttasaurusmeg: Fossil Fuelin' The Fonkay”, but was inexplicably left off of 2003’s “The Essential Fishbone”.
