So being an altavista aficionado, I thought I'd try out their
recently announced multimedia search. [1]

I, of course, decided to put something non-corporate into the mix:

Mommy's little monster by Social Distortion

The results were:

You were looking for Mommy's Little Monster by Social Distortion.
We found approximately 9138 audio(s).

Basically, the first
site contains realaudio of several SD songs, but not
the one I was looking for. It is mentioned, though. The second
is a broken link, the rest are basically irrelevant. Not
bad, but about par with Lycos. I try the regular altavista
engine with:

Mommy's little monster by Social Distortion +ram

and it returns an obscure SD news page followed by
tons and tons of 3dfx Monster 3D pages. The third
try returned 3, no songs in site:

+"Mommy's little monster" by +"Social Distortion" +ram
