The Lyrics

This just popped into my head in a flash (ba doom tsssh) I mean, if you're gonna write a parody about the Mother Of All Bombs, you should use an OS done by a group named after the Mother Of All Bombers .. amiright, amiright
If you hear a muffled sound up at 30,000 feet
That means it's fifteen minutes to the
MO-O-O-AB .. BLAST!!
MOAB blast yeah, yeah

I'm headed down the ancient Silk Highway
Looking for an ISIS getaway
Headed for an ISIS wipe-away

I got me a bomb it's as big as a whale
And we're getting set up for the MOAB blast
I got me a transport it seats about twenty
So open up, let's blow some taxpayer money

On a MOAB blast, it's a little ol op where
They'll be blown to ether
MOAB blast, baby
MOAB blast, baby, MOAB blast
MOAB blast, baby, MOAB blast

Light says, "Say your prayers, fools"
Cause force rules at the MOAB blast
Well, they're set way back in some Hindu Kush caves
And a funky big blast gonna make it their graves

Havoc in the dugouts
Havoc on the goat paths
Havoc in the tunnels
Havoc on the pathways

The MOAB blast is a little ol op where
They'll be turned to ether
MOAB blast, baby (MOAB blast, baby)
MOAB blast, trapped here like rats
MOAB blast, trapped here like rats

Cussin' and a-pissin'
Gaspin' and a snuffin'
Feelin' next to nuthin',
Cause your bod's concussin'
The whole cave shudders when everybody's tossed
All around and around and around and around
Everybody's moving, everybody's losin' it
Folks flying in from outside just to get down
Everybody's moving, everybody's losin' it
F#(king big blast
F#(king big blast

Unpack that ordnance, it's as big as a whale
And we're about to unleash hell
I got me a bomb, it will blow away plenty
So come on, let's spend some taxpayer money
On a MOAB blast, it's a little ol op where
They'll get blown to ether
MOAB blast, baby
MOAB blast, baby MOAB blast
MOAB blast, baby, MOAB blast

Boom, Boom, Boom, in the canyon
(Drop another big one)
Boom, Boom, Boom, at the cave door
(We cant hear you)
BOOM! BOOM! (On the cave, Kaffirs)
BOOM! BOOM! (On the cave)
BOOM! BOOM! (On the cave, Kaffirs)
BOOM! BOOM!

Say WHAT?
CAVE ROOF! .. Crumblin'

MOAB blast, baby, MOAB blast .....

It's war, it's about a bomb- 555! But for the record the largest bombers were the B-36 and Soviet prototypes Myasishchev M-50 and M-52. The MOAB itself is overrated too. Britain had 11 ton Grand Slams in WW2 and the US had 22 ton T-12 Cloudmakers. Russia has the FOAB 44 ton thermobaric weapon (ATBIP).

The MOAB has 9.35 tons of high explosive in it which makes up 86% of the total weight of the package, because a big bang is the whole point. Half the weight of a Grand Slam or Tallboy is in the iron casing so only about 5 tons of each is high explosive. And the T-12 looks like a prototype of the bunker buster models of modern times wherein only 25% of the bomb's weight is high explosive; so I'm guessing the amount of high explosive in a T-12 was less than a MOAB. .... As for the FOAB, well, that one is off the charts. But you know the Russkies; with them it's always "Go big or go home"

I was being sarcastic about the awe of a 11 ton bomb. The percentage thing doesn't matter at all in a bomb. It's what type of explosive(s) and RE factor. The MOAB is greater than a Grand Slam but far less than the FOAB. But even if a Lanc dropped a Grand Slam on the ISIS tunnel network, it probably would have had a similar result with the blast and seismic waves it creates. 5 tons of Torpex is nothing to laugh at and the GS would have penetrated first, then detonated. Btw, German Amatol had a higher RE factor than Torpex.

I matched this against the audio of the execrable OS (ba doom tsssh), and although the pacing is a bit off, it does no harm to the amusing concept of ISIS guys being ba-da-boomed to bits. Glad you left the technical details for the comments. They would have weighed down the parody. 455.

^^ This group was trying to be ironic when it named itself the B-52s, so if you turn it around on them and use their song in a militaristic way, the effect is going to be amusing. I once did a parody of this OS (not here) called "Arc Light" which was actually about using B-52s in Vietnam ..... I'm heading down the Ho Chi Minh Highway; looking for a Commie getaway. Another good line was .. SAM says "Stay away, fool" cause flak rules at the Arc Light
