KMFDM recorded a track called 'UAIOE', which is a mix-up of a couple of Frank Zappa songs, mainly 'I'm The Slime' and 'Dinah-Moe Humm'. It can be found on the album with the same name.
On the KMFDM album "Don't Blow Your Top", in the track with the same name, no fewer than five different Zappa tunes contribute lyrics: 'Son Of Suzy Creamcheese', 'I'm The Slime', 'Dirty Love', 'The Orange County Lumber Truck' and 'Bow Tie Daddy'.

random notes


     From: Walter Moczygemba
On the KMFDM album "UAIOE", parts of "I'm The Slime" and "Dinah-Moe Humm" (and, I think, "Sofa") are incorporated into the title track. As a matter of fact, there's also the chorus to "Tell Me You Love Me"  in there. So it's like a vocal medley sort of thing.

UAIOE

gross and perverted
obsessed and deranged
I have existed for years
but very little has changed
I'm a tool of the government
and in the street too
for I'm destined to rule
and I'm gonna rape you--lay you

vile and pernicious
but you can?t look away
may you think I'm delicious
with the stuff that I say
I'm the best you can get
have you guessed it yet?
I'm the slime oozing out
from your TV sets

tell me you love me                   x3
like I want you to
I love you so right now
I'm right for you
I want to come inside
get a hold on you

just get me wasted and
you're half way there
if my mind's torn up
then I really don't care
I am the air
I am the water
I am the dirt beneath your shoes
tie her up
strip down and get loose
fuck yourself up
corrupt your body and soul
sooner or later you'll believe what I told

tell me you love me                   x3
like I want you to
I love you so right now
I'm  right for you
burning with the fire
of my heart's desire
tell me--tell me
tell me you love me...  


on the 'Everything' website, there's an article called "Frank Zappa versus KMFDM" by Kaleja

http://everything2.com/title/Frank+Zappa+versus+KMFDM

The German industrial band KMFDM seems to have borrowed or stolen quite a few lyrics from Frank Zappa, of all people. They can get away with this because there's probably not a huge overlap between their respective audiences; I've just run across the Zappa connection purely by accident, myself. Sascha Konietzko of KMFDM acknowledges Zappa as an influence, but as far as I've seen hasn't admitted to the wholesale ripping-off of lyrics. Interestingly, in the KMFDM track Don't Blow Your Top, no fewer than five different Zappa songs contribute lyrics, yet it actually holds together pretty well, demonstrating a weird hybrid of creativity and plagiarism. Sascha K's later lyrical work, particularly in the post-KMFDM band MDFMK, is, as far as I know, original, and pretty catchy.

For example:

Zappa, Tell Me You Love Me -- KMFDM, UAIOE

Tell me you love me
Tell me you love me
Like I want you to
I love you so hard now I'm crying for you
I want to come inside
and grab ahold of you

Zappa, Dinah-Moe-Hum -- KMFDM, UAIOE

Just get me wasted
And you're half-way there
'Cause if my mind's tore up
Then my body don't care

Zappa, Broken Hearts Are For Assholes -- KMFDM, Virus

Ram it up your poop-chute

Zappa, (Son of) Suzy Creamcheese -- KMFDM, Don't Blow Your Top

Once you were my one and only
Took my stash and left me lonely
Think I'll go and start my car
Really dig her she's so freaky

Zappa, I'm The Slime -- KMFDM, UAIOE

I am gross and perverted
I'm obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little had changed
I am the tool of the Government
And industry too
For I am destined (designed) to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious
With the stuff that I say
I am the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I am the slime oozin' out
From your TV set

Zappa, I'm The Slime -- KMFDM, Don't Blow Your Top

I'm obsessed 'n deranged
For I am destined to rule
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

Zappa, Dirty Love -- KMFDM, Don't Blow Your Top

I don't need your sweet devotion
I don't want your cheap emotion
Give me
Your dirty love

Zappa, The Orange County Lumber Truck -- KMFDM, Don't Blow Your Top

I just can't believe (that)
You are such a fool

Zappa, Bow Tie Daddy -- KMFDM, Don't Blow Your Top

Dontcha blow your top


Don't Blow Your Top

I'm obsessed and deranged
For I am destined to rule
And I just can't believe that
You are such a fool 
I don't need your sweet devotion 
I don't want your cheap emotion
You will do as you are told
'til the rights to you are sold

Don't you blow your top
Are you hung up? 
Give me you dirty love
Give me you dirty love

Think I'll go and start my car
to have the real adventure
Like some tacky little creep 
I really dig her she's so creepy
Once you were my one and only 
Took my stash and left me lonely

Don't you blow your top
Are you hung up? 
Give me you dirty love
Give me you dirty love
Give me you dirty love
Give me you dirty love
