Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event

  • This mournful song was written by Chino Moreno by himself on piano. He recalled to Kerrang: "Every day I'd walk from the (studio's) control-room to the bathroom, and there was a piano there. I'd play a couple more notes each day until I had the whole thing."
  • Lead guitarist Stephen Carpenter played the drums on this track.
