Reviews:

''Sailing the Seas of Cheese'' is the second studio album and major-label debut by Primus, released on May 28, 1991. It spawned three singles: "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver", "Tommy the Cat", and "Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers". "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" appeared in ''Tony Hawk's Pro Skater'' video game, while "American Life" appears in ''Tony Hawk's Project 8''.

The album contains several samples from other media:

* "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" contains a sample from the movie ''The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2'' in which the character Chop Top exclaims "Dog will hunt!"

* "Los Bastardos" contains samples from the BBC television series ''The Young Ones'' including Vyvyan shouting, "Shut up, you bastards!" as well as Rick saying, "You just called me a bastard, didn't you?" and "Mike, you bastard!"

''Sailing the Seas of Cheese'' reached Gold status March 1993. It was certified platinum in December 2001. - Wikipedia
