Three Nil

Album: Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses (2004)


  • Three Nil is a term used for an embarrassing defeat. Three Nil is 3-0. This song is also about being put on display in your shame: "I'm sick of being the butt of a cosmic joke and I don't get the punchline. A million people lined up for miles to see the great big mouth. Shut up and Apologize!"
  • At a show in Stockholm, Sweden, lead singer Corey Taylor said: "This song lets you know right up front, we are here to destroy you!" >>
