Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from American Heavy Metal band Mastodon's fifth studio album, The Hunter. The song is about a video game that mixes asteroids with hemorrhoids. Drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor told Kerrang!: "The lyrics to this are really aggressive but pretty childish. They go, 'I want to drink some f---ing blood/ I want to break some f---ing glass. I want to turn you inside out, I want it all.' We named it after this video game at the studio because it sounded silly."
