  • Robert from Lethbridge, Abhey the ladies can understand it too Wilfred, if they have a larger clit, and or a pecker as well they could have their own style of a helmet in the bush.
  • Brooke from Des Moines, IaIs the ending Bails-a-Bub? (...Satan language.)
  • Aiden from Hendersen, NvSure, I know what the title means but what the hell is that sound John is making?
  • Harley from Auckland, New ZealandThe Christian convert is Brian "Head" Welch, one of their Guitarists.
  • Matt from Boston, MaI used to take a LOT of speed. When I was having my problem i would listen to this song over and over again. Teen agnst. The most messed up band members help with the most messed up. It's an intense and emotional song without the normal BS Korn theatrics.
    Anyhow, Korn needs to cheer up a little. They should be more like whatshisface, the Christian convert. Good for him.
  • Wilfred from Melbourne, AustraliaThe title is just so dam funny once you understand what the song is about... guys, you'll understand this better than the ladies... absolutely priceless!
  • Nick from Paramus, NjA drum machine was used on this song, and in many parts of their later songs.
  • Joseph from Manteca, CaLa Caco was their guitar tech I think
  • Jeff from Bakersfield, CaIve met La Caco, and he is a nice guy, so the comment is right on.
