When They Drop The Atomic Bomb: Jackie Doll and his Pickled Peppers [1951]

In one of the most vicious Bomb records released, the singer gleefully anticipates the use of atomic weapons on the 'Commies' to quickly end the Korean War. In stark contrast to the virulent and simplistic lyrics is playful country instrumentation that would be right at home at a barn dance.

There were other songs that championed General MacArthur's Korean command such as Roy Acuff's Doug MacArthur (1951), but none quite as definitively as Mr. Doll and his Pickled Peppers.

Very little is known about Jackie Doll or his band aside from the fact that Doll had two recording sessions with Mercury in 1951 and released a total of six sides.

LYRICS/TRANSCRIPTION:
When They Drop The Atomic Bomb: Jackie Doll and his Pickled Peppers [1951]

There will soon be an end to this cold and wicked war
When those hard headed Communists get what they're lookin' for
Only one thing that will stop them and their atrocious bunch
If General MacArthur drops an atomic bomb

Now over in Korea our boys have fought and fell
But they died just like heroes amid the many shot and killed
They had their hands tied behind them and were murdered by the score
By those dirty minded Communists who started this sad war

There'll be fire, dust and metal flying all around
And the radioactivity will burn them to the ground
If there's any Commies left they'll be all on the run
If General MacArthur drops an atomic bomb

Old hard headed Joe will be feelin' mighty blue
When he finds out he's bitten off more than he can chew
For his aggression will be ended and the job will be well done
If General MacArthur drops an atomic bomb

Old MacArthur has the power to stop those murderin' thieves
And he’ll make them sorry for their underhanded schemes
Just leave it to the general for he really has the nerve
To give no good Communists just what they deserve

There'll be fire, dust and metal flying all around
And the radioactivity will burn their playhouse down
If there's any Commies left they'll be all on the run
If General MacArthur drops an atomic bomb
