“Nabbed in Nebraska”: Anvil’s Heart Is in the Right Place


Anvil are terrible. Anvil have always been terrible. Barring a miracle, or at least the hiring of an outside songwriter, Anvil will always be terrible. To wit: their new single, “Nabbed in Nebraska,” which is, indeed, terrible. Like, Local Band terrible. It sounds like Lemmy wrote a Motörhead song after he died. I don’t know how that would be possible, but once you listen to this track, you’ll understand what I mean.

Which is too bad, because the basic message of the song — “Smoking weed ain’t no crime” — is certainly one I can get behind. But in addition to the terrible music, the lyrics read like they were either written by a teenager who just got high for the first time. They were actually written sexagenarian who has likely smoked his brains into mush, as Run the Jewels would put it. I guess that’s basically the same thing as a teenager who just got high for the first time.

Habitual behavior
With no foreseeable end
Pot in the pocket
Given by a friend
Prohibited substance
In different states
While crossing boundaries
Police lay in wait
