Stoney's Extra Stout (Pig) is the eighth studio album by the Dead Milkmen.[5][6] It was released by Restless Records in 1995.[7] The Dead Milkmen had decided to break up prior to its release; the band (minus deceased bass player Dave Schulthise) would not record again until 2011's The King in Yellow.[8][9]

Several songs made it onto Death Rides a Pale Cow (A Collection), a greatest hits release from the band.

Critical reception[edit]

Trouser Press wrote: "Typical of the uninspired banality, the final track, 'Big Deal', opens with 'Life sucks then you die / And your soul gets sucked into the sky.' Meanwhile, your records go to the cutout bins."[10] The A.V. Club called the album "justly forgotten."[11]
