The Real Thing

The Real Thing is an album released by Faith No More in 1989. Most known for its track "Epic," whose video featured a fish flopping about on the ground, the album's "Underwater Love" also became popular. The video for "Epic" was subject to controversy because of the perceived treatment of the fish, which appears to be dying--it was in fact slow motion footage; the fish was returned to its tank alive.

The album also features "War Pigs," a remake of the anti-war protest song by Black Sabbath, as well as "Edge of the World," a piano ballad about a matricidal[?] pedophiliac.
