  • Lyrics
  • This song is about revenge and a deep hatred for a particular person. Although the lyrics mean what they say, a lot of people see it as just a song about killing someone, but it's about making someone feel the way he did.

    Wednesday 13, also known as the lead singer in Murderdolls, draws influence on this song from the Sex Pistols, who did hatred and profanity as well as anyone. "When I heard the word "f--k" and I saw them the first time, I was like, 'Whoa.' That used to be crazy," he told us. "I was like, 'Alright. Well, if I ever get in a band one day, I'm just going to say it as many times as I can, because that would be more over the top.'" (Here's our full Wednesday 13 interview.)

  • Mickey Knox from Route 666, NmThis is a very aggressive and violent song. I can picture a prison riot going on with this song blaring from the PA system in my mind's eye. Okay I admit it I do have a rather sick sense of humor.

    "s--t, I quess I'm just a natural born killer"
  • Landon from Winchester, OhI included this song on a CD I made full of angry music, to jam out loud and scream into a pillow when I get pissed! This song fits on the soundtrack really well!
