Songfacts®:

  • Apocalyptica decided to bare all on this track, as the four band members recorded the song nude in the studio. "Yeah, yeah, that's a good story for that song," cello player Paavo Lötjönen told Billboard magazine with a laugh. "It's true, we did it, but... why not? It was just for fun. You know, to be naked is a totally different thing for the Finns compared to Americans. Maybe for Americans it's difficult to understand the joke behind that. We were spending over one month in the studio, and you've got to get some fun happening there, too."
