Hey Derek, weren't you in American History X. I think you are my brother. SS-3 was a license plate of RH.

UPDATE...The band may be reffering to 3rd SS Division Totenkopf. The division is famous due to its insignia (an awsome looking skull) and the fact that most of the initial enlisted men were SS-Totenkopfverbände (SS concentration camp guards).
Forget my comment about the submarine.

SS-3 (Adder) was a Plunger-class submarine, was one of the earliest submarines used by the United States Navy in WWI. Nothing to do with the song, just a bit of info of what they possibly used for the idea of the title.

We ring the Hell's Bells to see what songs and rockers are sincere in their Satanism, and how much of it is an act.

Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.

Kristian talks songwriting technique, like how the chorus should redefine the story, and how to write a song backwards.
