Well, those are some of the campier songs for sure. Not that all PRIMUS isn't campy to some degree, but to be honest I really don't even like Wynona all that much. I mean, it's OK. Jerry is OK, too - but it has been played like a bazillion times. I could see people being sick of it. Mud is pretty awesome - mainly because it really features Les's slap-style of playing, which is just so damn good. John is also a "classic" by PRIMUS fan standards, but I can see why it wouldn't appeal to some folks.
Tell you what - I'd be willing to throw together a "listen to this here shit" list if you'd be interested in running through it just once. You might find some stuff worth liking after all. It's up to you.
