Forgotten (Lost Angels)

Album: Sacrament (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • Based on the lyrics and certain video footage, this song seems to be about Randy Blythe's hatred for Los Angeles, California. The line, "Mulholland's on fire" refers to Mulholland Drive, which is a road in Los Angeles. "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
