Prairie Home Invasion is an album released by US musicians Jello Biafra and Mojo Nixon in 1994.[1] The title is a play on the popular public radio program A Prairie Home Companion and the Ice-T album Home Invasion.[citation needed] There was also 7" and CD singles released for "Will The Fetus Be Aborted?", which included an outtake from this album titled "The Lost World" as a B-side and Eugene Chadbourne & Evan Johns' parody of Billy Ray Cyrus's "Achy Breaky Heart" titled "Achy Rakey Heart" as a CD single bonus track. "Let's Go Burn Ole Nashville Down" (set to the tune of "Old Joe Clark") has been described as a comment "on the sad state of country music in the '90s",[2] with lyrics that attacked Garth Brooks and Jimmy Bowen.
