If you like playing tunes onboard and aren't a fan of seals, boy do we have the song for you.

Screenshot from the Canadian Beaver Band video.Last week, the Canadian Beaver Band released a special song titled "Them God Damned Seals" and it's a hoot, to say the least. 

"Between the propaganda and hate from the likes of HSUS, IFAW, Greenpeace, PETA, Paul Watson and a variety of other anti-seal hunt nutbars, comes this love song," reads the video's description.

But I don't think it technically classifies as a love song. "They're eatin' all the crab, they're eatin' all the shrimp and they're trying to blame the fishermen for all the overfishin'," goes one line toward the beginning of the track.

It's worth a listen or two and could even become your boat's game time anthem.

You can listen to the song on Youtube. There's a lot of profanity (pretty much every other word), so this is a  fair warning for anyone who doesn't want to hear that.
