"92' should have burnt this f--ker to the ground" signifies the riots and fires that happened in 1992 after the Rodney King trial controversy. >>

  • Doug from B, IaHAHAHA! As soon as I read that Randy hates L.A. I burst out laughing. I think it's hilarious because i'm a big Tool fan, and they have a song about California being flushed into the ocean The article said that Maynard (Tool's singer) hates L.A. too! XD
