Album: Chinese Democracy (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Unlike most of the other tracks on Chinese Democracy, this straight-forward rock song was previously unknown to fans of the band.
  • The guitar solo was recorded by axe-man Brian "Buckethead" Carroll during his tenure with the band between 2000 and 2004. The guitar supremo is nicknamed "Buckethead" as he literally wears a bucket on his head when performing. For many years he wore a KFC bucket emblazoned with a sticker with the word "FUNERAL" inscribed on it. He has since switched to a white bucket.
