Mars Needs Women

Album: Hellbilly Deluxe 2 (2010)


  • Zombie explained to MSN Music why he stuck on the two-minute acoustic-guitar-and-bongos part at the beginning of this song: "I guess it is two pieces stuck together in a way. John (5, guitar) had written that mellow guitar thing and Tommy (Clufetos, drums) was playing along – I don't think he was playing bongos necessarily, but I'm not really sure. We just loved it, but we didn't know what to do with it. But then we thought it'd be kind of cool to have an intro piece that transitions to the song. It really doesn't make any sense with it, in a way, but we liked it so we wanted to stick it on there in some fashion. Cause when 'Mars Needs Women.' kicks in, it's so obviously its own track."
