"Bob Mould came in to play on that song. I was a huge Husker Du fan. I met him for the first time last summer in Washington DC. And he's the nicest fucking guy in the world. There was this great moment where he walked in the studio with his guitar; everybody was sort of star-struck. The minute he opened his mouth on the microphone, it sounded exactly like Husker Du."
"White Limo has such a badass riff it's fucking insane. It makes you want to break into someone's car and steal their stereo."
"These Days, I think, might be the best song I've ever written.
BACK & FORTH
A MATTER OF TIME
"A Matter Of Time, which is one of the sweetest melodies I've ever written, but it has one of the heaviest riffs."
MISS THE MISERY
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN
"When I first wrote that, I was sitting in my bedroom, and I had someone else in mind when I was singing it. But then as I elaborated on it I thought, there are definitely connections. I've definitely felt that way before, especially with Kurt, where, you know, I was afraid this was going to happen. So to have Krist come down and play on that song was kind of a risky move. I explained to him, I said: "Yeah, you know, it's one of those songs that I'm sure people are going to think it's about Kurt." And he basically said: "Oh, fuck it. That's okay."
