They Might Be Giants: Snowball in Hell Meaning

Snowball in Hell Lyrics

Avalanche or roadblock
I was a snowball in hell
Avalanche or roadblock
A jailer trapped in his cell

Money's all broke, and food's going hungry
If it wasn't for disappointment
I wouldn't have any appointments

Side effect or drug...

    This is a song about working a sales job. The main riff in the song is reminiscent of the sound of a doorbell, he may have been a door to door salesman.

    "Avalanche or roadblock
    I was a snowball in hell
    Avalanche or roadblock
    A jailer trapped in his cell"

    Snowball in hell: he didn't have a chance. Jailer in his cell: He did it to himself.


    "Money's all broke, and food's going hungry
    If it wasn't for disappointment
    I wouldn't have any appointments"

    He's unsuccessful, no appointments and is going broke.
