In Their Words: "This was one of the first songs I wrote for the record, and it's also the most paranoid. It took us a while to record it correctly; to make it sound as paranoid as it really is. Tim [Rutili] was kind enough to lend the song a sleazy guitar line, and that helped. Eventually we just recorded the drums in the concrete parking garage at the studio. Once we did that, I pretty much knew that the song was finally right. Pretty much the opposite energy than that of 'Animal!' It sounds pretty psychotic, which is always a good thing." -- Singer/guitarist Richard Edwards
