  • Lyrics
  • This rather misanthropic song from Lamb of God's debut album is about a man who can't figure out why he hates people so much or how he came to hating them. All he knows is that he does. >>

  • The title doesn't appear in the lyrics. So why "Black Label"? Carling Black Label beer was the band's favorite. They typically write the music first and assign names to songs before rendering lyrics.
  • This is one of the band's most popular live songs, and typically the last song they play in their sets.
