Break Like the Wind is a 1992 album by the semi-fictional band Spinal Tap. The title, from the album's title track, is a double entendre that combines and confuses the idiom "make like the wind [and blow]" (i.e. "go away") with "break[ing] wind" (a euphemism for flatulence), and samples the classical guitar piece Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo. The songs depict the range of genres that Spinal Tap endured, from the glam metal anthem "Bitch School" down to the skiffle satire of "All the Way Home". Originally, the CD was packaged in an 18-inch "extra-long box," as a satire against the controversial packaging policy of longboxes which was increasingly criticized as unnecessary and wasteful.
