Patti Smith Says Goodbye to Aqua Teen Hunger Force With Beautiful Elegy

If you’ve ever wanted to hear Patti Smith sing the names of your favorite characters from Aqua Teen Hunger Force—not Carl–your day has finally come! I know it’s a pretty niche fantasy, but really anyone can enjoy the mournful original ballad Smith performed to say goodbye to the cult show, which is ending this weekend. Grab a tissue; the way that she sings “meatwad” is just beyond.


Here are the lyrics, which make no sense but are also very profound:

I never dreamed

I’d be an Aqua Teen

Thirteen seasons

What did it mean?

A Master Shake

Meatwad, a floating head

And now you’re dead

And it’s the end

Of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”

It’s the end

Of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”

Miss you forever, Master Shake!
