Dysentery Gary

Album: Enema Of The State (1999)
  • In this song, a guy had his heart broken by a girl who liked someone else (Gary, who is only mentioned in the title). He's very upset, and taking out his anger on Gary, who he thinks is a complete loser. He just can't believe she chose this guy over him. >>

  • Dysentery is a pretty nasty condition where the patient suffers frequent diarrhea, which explains why Gary is referred to as a diarrhea-giver.
  • Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge sang lead on this.
