I remember stumbling over this by myself one night while listening to the OST. It's great stuff, and then suddenly I find a funny song. I look at the quite frankly absurd amount of comments. All of it is jew jokes. It had the same tonal whiplash as going to a party for balloon animals with cupcakes, taking a wrong turn, and ending up in Hitler's party basement instead.
