24 hours after Shannon Noll screamed at an audience member, threatening to *bleep* his missus AND his mum - the rant has been recreated in song form.

ABC’s current affairs-themed comedy show Tonightly made light of Shannon’s onstage meltdown during last night’s show, working a transcript of his tirade to the melody of his 2004 cover of ‘What About Me’.

The ‘lyrics’, re-interpreted by Greg Larsen, set to the backdrop of Shannon’s cinematic music video/ode to the Aussie battler is admittedly hilarious.

Tonightly posted the video to their Facebook page, joking that his on-stage abuse was merely song practice:

“Turns out, Shannon Noll’s meltdown was actually just him practising the lyrics for his new single, Which Prick Threw That?”

Here it is in full - language warning for those of you at work!

Shannon was performing at at the Duck Creek Picnic Races in Nyngan, NSW on the weekend, when a nasty audience member threw a full can of beer at his head.

The can missed, but Shannon was understandably shaken. The expletive-riddled rant that followed, however, saw him slammed by fans and the media, with writer Matilda Dixon-Smith condemning his “vile display of machismo” on The Project last night.

Shannon’s rant saw him threaten violence towards the offending audience member, as well as offering to pay someone to punch him:

“Whoever threw that, come up here… Come on then, that f***head in the tie. You’re a f***ing maggot. Have some f***ing balls to come up here ... cheapshot prick.

“Shame that motherf***er right there. F***ing private school stupid f***head motherf***er. Have some balls and get up here and I’ll punch your f***ing teeth down your throat ... then I’ll f*** your missus and your mum.

“Let’s everybody else, apart from that f***stick, sing along to that song, ok, here we go. I’ll give someone $100 bucks to punch that f*** for me.

“Enough with the haters, f*** the haters. There’s too many good looking girls here.”

His language was dramatically different when he issued the following apology on Facebook the next day:

“I would like to apologise for my behaviour and language at Saturday night’s Duck Creek Picnic Races.

"During our set there were people in the audience throwing cans and bottles at the stage and after one guy threw a full can, just missing my head it really rattled me. We had a similar issue last year with a firecracker thrown onto the stage and one of my band members was seriously hurt … you don’t have a lot of deep vision into the crowd from the stage and it’s pretty scary to see something suddenly flying straight at you. We’re just doing our job and these actions are not acceptable.

“I completely understand that that is still no excuse for the way I spoke and I am deeply sorry for the terrible things I said that were purely out of frustration.”
