Song of the Day: Meat Puppets - Severed Goddess Hand

As I imagine was the case for most people, the first Meat Puppets songs I heard were when the brothers joined Nirvana on MTV Unplugged.  Around the same time, they had a pretty big hit with "Backwater" off of their Too High to Die album, which I dutifully went out and bought.  Outside of this album, I never completely got into the Meat Puppets, though I've tried (and I'm still trying - I just recently bought the vinyl reissue of II, which contains all three songs from the Unplugged sessions).  But Too High to Die is a solid and quite eclectic album, which this song (including its title) exemplifies perfectly.
