Yarn - "Cocaine Bear"

Yarn wrote their latest single back in 2019, but there's no better time to release a song called "Cocaine Bear" than on the release date of a much anticipated film called Cocaine Bear. Yarn's song recounts the story of Cocaine Bear, aka Pablo Escobear, who was found dead after ingesting cocaine that was dumped from a plane near the Georgia/Tennessee border back in the 1980's. Despite being a novelty song, "Cocaine Bear" works perfectly by how seriously Yarn take the subject matter. It's done in the style of vintage 70's country, and, if you're not paying that much attention to the lyrics, you'd just enjoy it based on it being a killer country ballad.

You can listen to "Cocaine Bear" below. For more on Yarn, check out the band's website.
