Hot Dog

Album: Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water (2000)
  • This song references other songs in lyrics. It seems to be a jab at Trent Reznor with of references to Nine Inch Nails songs "Perfect Drug" and "Closer." The bridge of, "You can't bring me down" is borrowed from the song of that name by Suicidal Tendencies. The guitar part playing tips its hat to the Suicidal Tendencies song also.
  • Speaking to NME in 2012, guitarist Wes Borland recalled how he and vocalist Fred Durst came up with the album title. "I was looking at different bottles of flavored water and joked that they should make water flavored like hot dogs. It was late at night and we were delirious. Then Fred said, 'What if the band is The Hot Dog Flavored Water and the frontman is some a--hole called Chocolate Starfish? I said 'Perfect.'"

    So much for trying to hold a record, LOL!
  • Kevin from Galt, CaI also think this song is trying to copy the Insane Clown Posse's song f--k the world where they say the f word 93 times.
  • Narrator from Chicago, IlOne of the ways I interpreted the song was that the parts with the f-word and "you can't bring me down..." is supposed to be a penis speaking to a vagina (hence the song title Hot Dog) and the chorus is a vagina speaking to the penis. Call me crazy but it seems to make sense.
  • Azalea from Hot Springs, ArHonestly, even though they overdo it with the cursing, this song has alot of meaning and it has an amazing beat that catches everyones attention that gets you hyped up and makes you feel better. It expresses that the world is f**ked up so no body should think they are better than the rest. When I listen to this song, my anger is replaced with energy and Im ready to party.
  • Hayden from Tka, New ZealandDespite the overkill of cursing, it's a good song.
  • Austin from Smallsville, New EnglandAw. Rember when temporarily limp was the biggest band in the world...And then we woke up!(lol I still like this song)
  • Texa from Pampas, AustraliaLimp Bizkit kiks arse, this song has a strong beat
  • Ben from Nyc, MsRetards
  • Shawn from Pasadena, MdThe F-word is located in the song 48 times.
