I recently discovered this term whilst listening to Alestorm. I found it quite interesting.

"Dancing the Hempen Jig" was the punishment 
for pirates caught and convicted of their crimes. 
The "hempen jig" was the dance of death at the 
end of the hangman's hemp rope. Pirates often 
joked about being executed, and for most pirates 
the everyday dangers of life at sea were more of 
a hazard than the hangman. 
Relatively few were brought to justice, and even 
those found guilty were often pardoned. 


Hempen, because the rope was primarily made from hemp fibers, and Jig because... well... I think this part is quite obvious.

Anyone else ever heard of this or know of any other interesting phrases?

Don't use distortion pedals. Just bury your guitar for three weeks, and then dig it up, that should do the job.
