Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
This song is about the first time you learn to "Self Satisfy." At some concerts, toward the end of the song Maynard Keenan will "jerk" his water bottle around until the climax of the song when he sprays water everywhere.
Keenan had a similar song while in Tool: "Part Of Me," on Opiate. (thanks, jim - garland, TX, for above 2)
Loudon Wainwright III
"Dead Skunk" became a stinker for Loudon when he felt pressure to make another hit. His latest songs deal with mortality, his son Rufus, and picking up poop.
The "Lowdown" and "Lido Shuffle" singer makes a habit of playing with the best in the business.
Penny Ford of Snap!
The original voice of Snap!, this story is filled with angry drag queens, video impersonators and Chaka Khan.
