"99 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall" by Atticus, from the album Figment (2001). Rich Stewart of Modern Drunkard Magazine ranked this version the #1 booze song of all time! From http://www.moderndrunkardmagazine.com...

"1. 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall (traditional)
Atticus/Arr.:Donnie Shockley (2001) This relatively unknown band from Knoxville, Tennessee recorded this immensely popular, seemingly innocent and lame-brained campfire chant live at a pub in Scotland and turned out a raucous, thirteen minute party-jam.

But does the song have a darker side? Someone who claims to be an MIT student/hacker contends it's an encryption procedure devised by The Order of Skull and Bones, the infamous secret drinking society headquartered at Yale University. Called the "Beer Bottle Cipher," it was created in the 1800's to protect the society's most valuable information. I won't present the formula of this procedure because, quite frankly, I think it's a hoax.

In my opinion, it it's simplicity and directness reflects the basic nature of existence. Eventually, we all will have passed around 99 bottles of beer and there will be no more bottles on the wall. It is then that life will fade away into nothingness, or at best an obscure memory buried in the depths of a drunken fog. Honorable mention: Andy Kaufman, the peculiar and sometimes annoying stand-up comedian performed it once during the early days of his career."
