This song was written as a parody by Jordan Peterson himself as a stick in the eye to postmodernist thinkers, if they may be called such.
If there is truth to the saying that ‘ideas have consequences’, then it must also be true that the philosophical influencers who blazed the trail for the more influential ideas of today have the heavy burden of being largely responsible for the mess we now find ourselves in.
The people behind those ideas — whether modern society knows them or not — have names. And this song gives them the public flogging they so richly deserve.
From Jordan’s YouTube description of the song itself:
In the face of Postmodernist intellectual stupidity, the best thing to do is laugh. Hence The Postmodernist Drinking Song.
The Postmodernist Drinking Song is based on an old English folk song, The Ballad of Lydia Pinkham, by way of a 1960’s British pop group, the Scaffold, whose variant Lily the Pink reached number one in the UK singles chart in ’68 (https://shorturl.at/btRZ). Our version was partly inspired, as well, by the brilliant idiocy of Monty Python’s The Philosophers Song, which celebrated the drunken shenanigans of the greatest thinkers of the Western tradition (https://shorturl.at/korUZ).
Postmodernism is a school of thought, increasingly dominant in what still passes for the modern academy, that famously rejects “grand narratives”—“collective myths that never had a reality,” as certain philosophers have it (https://shorturl.at/fMO46). Equally famously, however, the same thinkers turned, post-rejection, to the murderous blandishments of the Marxist story, which was in turn based on an even longer tradition of Luciferian arrogance and bitter resentment. No grand narrative–except, of course, that of power (with a nice dollop of immature hedonism tossed in, just to sweeten the pot).

Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.
That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
