“Steers and Queers”
Texas has been called a “land of steers and queers.” Sometimes, “beers” is
added to that.
The “steers and queers” chant has long been a popular Southern Methodist
University putdown of the University of Texas Longhorns. “Steers and queers”
was spoken by characters in the movies An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) and
Full Metal Jacket (1987).

Beers, Steers + Queers is an LP released by the Revolting Cocks in 1990. It
includes the song “Beers, Steers, and Queers” which is one of the best known

gets occasional club play.

Where you from, boy?
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, sir.
Only two things come out of Oklahoma.
Steers and queers.

You must be a queer.
