Regurgitator's Tu-Plang... is an utterly misbegotten funk-rap-metal fusion which, much as the band's name implies, offers merely another rehash of the usual genre fare. The group's songs strive to tackle the big issues -- domestic violence, gangsta rap, global economics -- but instead of offering insight or even wit, they crumble into cliches and crude posturing; "G7 Dick Does the Electro Boogie" finds an allegory for the GATT agreement in a slew of anal rape euphemisms, while "Pop Porn" goes so overboard in attacking rap misogyny that it reaches levels of offensiveness beyond anything actually in the true hip-hop canon. And as for the opener "I Sucked a Lot of Cock to Get Where I Am" -- a seeming attack on alt-rock sellouts -- well, one can't help but wonder if kneepads were included as a signing bonus with the band's fat major-label deal.
