Butcher Pete (Part 1) is a song in Fallout 3 that plays on Galaxy News Radio. It was written and performed by Roy Brown. It is also played on Diamond City Radio in Fallout 4.


The song chronicles the exploits of "Butcher Pete," an exaggerated and lascivious character who makes sexual advances towards and romantically conquers every woman in town until he is eventually put in jail, whereupon he makes similar advances towards his cellmate.

Its lyrics also imply exaggerated sex and violence in stark contrast with the cheerful tone of the music, a dichotomy which is the hallmark of the Fallout series.

The tune played in the game is only the first part of the song, which was split between the two sides of the record, hence the phrase "Say, turn this record over, you ain’t heard nothing yet!" at the end. The second part continues the story of Butcher Pete, including his attempted trip to China and what might have been his end in the electric chair.


Hey everybody, did the news get around
About a guy named Butcher Pete
Oh, Pete just flew into this town
And he’s choppin’ up all the women’s meat


He keeps hackin’ and whackin’ and smackin’
He keeps hackin’ and whackin’ and smackin’
He keeps hackin’ and whackin’ and smackin’
He just hacks, whacks, choppin’ that meat

Butcher Pete’s got a long sharp knife
He starts choppin’ and don’t know when to stop
All you fellas gotta watch your wives
‘Cause Pete don’t care whose meat he chops


Ever since Pete flew into town
He’s been havin’ a ball
Just cuttin’ and choppin’ for miles around
Single women, married women, old maids and all


Wakes up in the morning, half past five
Chops from sunrise to sunset
I don’t see how he stays alive
Meat’s gonna be the death of ole Pete yet


The police put Pete in jail
Yes, he finally met his fate
But when they came to pay his bail
They found him choppin’ on his cell mate


That Butcher Pete is a crazy man
Tries to chop down the wind and the rain
Just hacks on anything he can get
Say, turn this record over, you ain’t heard nothing yet
