Psycho by Puddle of Mudd

Album: FamousReleased: 2007Charted:
67
  • Do crazy people know they're crazy? The singer in this one is wondering if he's a little nuts. While insanity can be a serious topic, this is a fun song that is known for its campy video that pays homage to many famous horror flicks, including Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, Poltergeist and I Know What You Did Last Summer. Lead singer Wes Scantlin is driving a car full of teenagers when they encounter a series of classic horror characters. Several celebrities are also incorporated: Kid Rock, Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton, and Kanye West look-a-likes appear in the video. (thanks, Alan - Iowa, IA)
  • This reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock chart. It was also Puddle of Mudd's first entry in the Hot 100 since "Away From Me " in 1993.
  • Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Daughtry, Seether) produced this rocker.
  • The noted session musician Kenny Aronoff played drums on this track, as he did for their previous single "Famous." Among the other artists Aronoff has recorded with include The Rolling Stones, Meat Loaf, Bob Seger, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Avril Lavigne.

If Wes really wanted to drive his point across (that maybe he/everyone is a little psycho),in addition to showing himself as the crazy mother, he should've been in a padded room with a straight jacket and make it seem like a deja'vu/surreal dream. Just a thought since that would be one thing I would do if I made a video for this song.Dave - Browns Mills, Nj
