Fiend

Album: Dark Days (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first and only single from Coal Chamber's third studio album; it was inspired by the band's experiences from being on tour. Coal Chamber's vocalist Dez Fafara said, "'Taking everything in sight/All through the night/Leaving scars/And crashing cars,' these are things that have happened to me. And, 'Fiend for the fans/Fodder for the press,' that really makes sense for us. The first thing we are is a live band. After that, we'll give the press their fodder. And we've done enough s--t."
