  • Lyrics
  • This was the first Faith No More song featuring Mike Patton on vocals.
  • The video was mocking hair metal bands that were popular at the time. In our interview with bassist Billy Gould, he said the promotional clip "didn't get much traction." Consequently, Faith No More decided to shoot a video for another song from The Real Thing - "Epic."
  • This was used in the video game Madden NFL 2005.
  • The Heavy Metal band, Five Finger Death Punch, covered this song for the bonus edition of their 2007 album, The Way of the Fist. This cover was later included on the soundtrack for the 2012 superhero film, The Avengers.

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI love this band and have all their albums except for We Care A Lot which is nearly impossible to find for a reasonable price. Does anyone know where I could get that album for no higher than $40? (I'll probably have to get the cassette or vinyl, or maybe download it.)
