Picnic of Love is the fifth album by Anal Cunt. It was released on July 21, 1998. The album was released as a joke and a parody of love songs, as well as of the band itself. The album is characterized by the opposite of everything that the band represents. While the normal Anal Cunt album consists of forty to fifty tracks (most which are under a minute in length), Picnic of Love contains only eleven comparably long tracks. The extreme metal distorted guitars, rapid-fire drumming and loud screaming of earlier Anal Cunt songs is replaced by soft acoustic guitar and vocalist Putnam singing in gentle falsetto.[2] The most apparent change is the lyrical content: all of the songs are about inoffensive, sweet subjects as opposed to the band's more typical deliberately offensive or provocative material.[3]
