Now this episode Bock, we put up a poll on twitter to see what sound garden song people would want to hear, and the results are as follows. And the reason why I did it was because I honestly have been listening to super unknown for the past like month, like nonstop. I don't know, I've just been on the very big super unknown kick. I'm not sure why. Man To me it is yeah, but hear the results. So coming in fourth place and last place with nine point three percent, was the title track Super Unknown, and yes, I did try to lobby for this one, but it fails. But in third place was it was it's a great soul. Yeah, absolutely. In third place was the day I try to live with twenty point four percent, and coming in a close second place was black Hole Sun with thirty three point three percent, which I honestly thought this song was going to win, but the winner, with thirty seven percent of the vote, was fell on black days, which is what we're talking about. And, as I mentioned, it is from sound garden, off the album super unknown, and it came out in one thousand nine hundred and ninety four. Is Written by Chris Cornell. In case you guys Don know who Chris Cornell is, I don't know what to tell you about. You should check into that. But Buck, what are some of your memories of this song? It was the the title man fell on Black Days, right. I used to mess like they had other black and the other the other Song Cool Sun. Let's stick it back. Let's take this back. My buddy down giving me bad mode of finger and I freaking love that album, right, and I bought this album like the first week it was out and I was digging deep into this album and then just love and everything, Black Hole Sun came out. But Bah, blah, I couldn't. When I sang this song, I didn't hear fell on black days, I heard it fell on dark days, and that's how I sang it and I fail dark days and I never got it out of my...

...head that fell on black days was the lyrics. Is that weird? Is that weird? Not People, you know, people hear things and then and they do it, you know, a certain way for a long time and then next you know it's like wait, what I just I got myself away from the Black Hole Sun. I was just like you're going to name another so a black in it. Like just I just started singing. I think it goes better. You Sing it with dark days and I think it sounds better and I'll sing it again if fill lone. Another thing. When I do my karaoke, brow you everybody and everybody knows that's listening to that. I think this is my six or seventh podcast. Right I do my karaoke and I will never do Chris Cornell because Chris Cornell is in another stratosphere of singers and I refuse to do him. But I'll stop you. I will of them stop singing right now. But yeah, I always sang dark days, but this song I got into it, man, I just it's one of those like you're just chilling man, just listening. You know, you're going for a walk or you're just like in your room and just like all right, I want to learn how to play guitar. That's what I started learning how to play guitar and you know, it's just like this is what music's all about. And Yeah, I fell in love with these guys pretty early and they're one of my favorites and the songs always been a been something that I have special in my heart. Man. Definitely. Yeah, yeah, I mean I always. I never, I never said dark days, but I remember the song very well, right. I mean I still listen to it. My sister actually got this album off of I forget if it was BMG or Columbia House, I forgot. I forget. I forget which. Everybody got this. I think everybody has this fucking album, dude. I said, I swear it. Oh, yeah, I mean it's well, it's sold what nine million copies? So yeah, a lot of luck people have this album and I remember our generation remember when we got because I was, you know, a bit younger than and my sister was the one who had the I think it was Columbia House, but she had, you know, the account, or I guess my parents probably were the ones who had the account. So we would get the know, the ten albums for like ten cents or whatever, which is probably like eight thousand dollars, but we I remember. So she was like, Oh, you want to get a couple albums. I was like okay. So then I wound up getting super unknown and then I winds up getting ten from Pearl Jam. So that's a that's a pretty good start. I thought it's good score, man, and and I think for me the memory are recall the most is like just listening to the song around New Year's. I don't know why, just coming hanging in my room listening to the song as like it's a cool tune. So yeah, that's that's a great way to bring in the New Year listening to this uplifting tune. But yeah, I mean I remember when it came out and, you know, have the album and still still listen to it. But now fell on black days. It's been streamed over eighty six million times on spotify and sound garden has almost five million monthly listeners. I think that number should be higher, so everybody listen to them. Now this song peaked up number four on the billboard mainstream rock tracks chart. Didn't get to the US hot one hundred, but and that's fine. That doesn't need to. Now how does this song compared to the other songs on the album. I mean this album is massive. Right. Super unknown hit number one on the billboard two hundred had five singles released off of it. Spoon man in January of ninety four, the day I that's a great song, the day I tried to live, in April of ninety four, black hole sun in May of ninety four, my wave in October of ninety four, and then fell on black days in January of ninety five. So this is the last single released off of that album. And this also interesting note. This album came out the same day as the down word spiral from nine inch nails. That's a pretty damn good day for albums to come out home. Wow. Right. And, like I said before, this album sold nine million copies, over nine mollon copies well wide and in April of two thousand and Nineteen,...

...rolling stone rank this album ninth on their fifty greatest grunge albums list, which is Horse Shit because this should be in the top three. It's I mean it's ten dirt and then super unknown. I don't know. I still I still kind of don't think ten is gruned. I still think pro jam's grunge but people still like to call them grunge. So by that definition I would say ten. If you don't want to call program grunge's fine, because I kind of don't do but then I would say dirt is number one and then sit run down. Anyway, they came out with spoon man, right, yeah, first, Yep, Bro that song was awesome. Yeah, I come on a minute, man, you play the LEA. Did to try to do the spoon thing, didn't you know? I don't. I never did the well, I did the spoons is like randomly around a house, probably to annoy my parents, and I probably succeeded at that, but not a lot. Not like to this song, swoon man, come together with Y'all plans save me. Good. I did so this. I did try. That was like one of the first songs I tried learning on in Drop D on Guitar is. It's just fun to play that. Nice, Nice. Yeah. But so the album starts out with let me drown. Good starting track. that. We get to my wave, awesome tune. Then fell on black days will well, we'll talk about that a bit more, obviously. Then Maleman, which is quite an interesting song. It's good, but it's it's just interesting. Will leave it at that. Then we get super unknown, which is an awesome song. I feel like I've been like saws, I was seeing before I was listening to this album. For the last like a couple weeks. I feel like I've been focusing on that song and the one after it, which is head down. I've been listening to those like on repeat for the last like three weeks. But Nice. But Super Unknown, man, that's Super Uknown as life, you know, when you dig into the lyrics, you know alive in this super unknown. You know he says, if this isn't what you see, it doesn't make you blind, if this doesn't make you feel, it doesn't mean you've died. This song is awesome, like I was kind of hoping that. That's why I is lobbying for this one, but I was hoping we could discuss this a bit more. But it's a cool tune, you know. It's the talks about life, about the negative space, you know, like from like a if anybody out there is like a creative designer, you know you have things that you see, but then everything that you don't see is kind of called that negative space, and I feel like the song kind of is like you're stuff everywhere, you know, and just because you don't see something there, it doesn't mean there's nothing there. I kind of I like that song a lot. Man, it's kind of like a hopeful song, but then we get head down whole boy. This song is great because it's also about life, you know, and we, he says, we see you laugh, we see you dance, we take that away every day. We see you cry, we turn your head and then we slap your face, and then he says bow down to live your life. Like this song is there pressing as fuck, but then he says head high, you've got the smile. So even though, like this song is like spot on about adulthood, right, how kind of like being an adult kind of beats the creativity out of you and the joy. It's like you kind of become like a miserable prick. I feel like you need to hold onto that joy, in that happiness, and you need to smile and hold on to its. I feel like while the song, it's kind of like a cool, chill song, if you like, just focus on the music, but when he gets to the lyrics, it's like, man, this is kind of fucking depressing, but when you hold onto that one line where he was like, you know, you got a smile, man, you know. So that's that's that's that's my takeaway from from head down. But it's either way. It's a great song. No, it's great, man, and he's a pellet dude, bro He's it's nice to have, I mean the go from where we were at in the late s with rock songs to get where we got in the early S, late in the mid S. it's interesting. It's a one hundred and eighty, you know. I just think they just saw the dynamics of like that was just like hair spray booze and freaking girls, and then just got old and that John were just kind of like hey,...

...we're it's different out there now, man, there's you know, the John was just broken. The S it was just all different. It was going all different directions and if you didn't capture you didn't capture your audience with something different, you weren't going to capture them, you know, and they came with something different and I true artist man trure. Oh yeah, I mean you had that Glam rock of that was. No, yeah, like you're like you're saying it's girls booze partying and that's pretty much it. And these guys are like, well, not you known? I reely's been a party. That's fine, but not everything is like that. So these guys kind of saw it. Maybe these guys are when clearly, I feel like Cornell was definitely like clinically depressed. But you know, people in life deal with that, you know what I mean. So for them to you know, talk about it and bring it out into the open, I think is awesome. You know, get that conversation start and, you know, don't just party and have fun, because, guess what, not everything is happy times, as they say. So that's why I always appreciate music like this. But let me get the black hole sun. Amazing tune. It's I feel like it's interesting like how this super dark song became like arguably they're most popular song in the mainstream right. I mean I feel like if you ask somebody, like a random fan, like hey, sound garden, what's you know first song that comes to mind, they'll probably say a black hole sun, and that's fine. It's a great song, but definitely the most popular one, but it's definitely super dark. Spoon man, it was the song written about street performer artists, the spoon man, who also performs on the song. And this song also one the best metal performance at the ninety five grammy's. So Oh yeah, it's it's quite accomplished. Then we get let me get limo reck. Great Tune, the day I try to live. I feel like the day I try to live. As a bit it gets a bit misunderstood. I think Cornell himself said it was like a hopeful song and it's about attempting to be normal and just go out and be around other people. He said the day I try to live more means like the day I actually tried to open up myself. I feel like some people misunderstand that song and they kind of take it as like a suicide letter, and it's not. But great tune. Also, seven dust recently covered this. kickstand comes after that and then fresh ten D rols. Good Song, Fourth of July. If I feel like, if you look up the grungiest song ever, this should be that song. This song, just like ooze, is grunge right. It has it that killer opening riff. It's like dirty and just like grimy. It's such a great song and it was. The song was basically about an acid trip that cornell, that Cornell had. Then we get half and that crazy how I just set up like through all his albums, just in the way he passed. It was just like kind of just leaving bread crumbs all the way to the end, almost like a self fulfilling prophecy. And it was I watched, and I was like doing some research for this. I watched a couple interviews of him and I was one I saw and I think it was from two thousand and fourteen. He was on was IT K rock? And I mean, granted, I think they said it was like early in the morning they were doing the interview, but he just they're talking about you know that. You know it's been twenty years since super unknown. They released a twenty anniversary like special addition whatever, and he just, I don't know, a man like you just he just seems and at this point he had already done audio slave too, and he's, you know, a very accomplished musician and he just, you know, he just did not seem happy. You know, like there is like something there with him. That I mean, and obviously we know what happens. Depression is deep, man. Depression is deep. I mean he had it early on, man. Oh yeah, yeah, so it just how you overcome it and just I think it just talking about it and he tried to try to find a way to express himself through song. Oh yeah, that's he said that...

...as much you know. And he just can't go into a mind of somebody without like kind of living it. And I it's sad, man, it's sad. It just and you don't even know the people that are affected to correct that they can have that that that safe face and smile and like a Robin Williams. Yeah, Dude. So, yeah, I mean we're we're this episode is very happy, guys, I assure you. But no, I mean how does this song fit in? I mean, if it's in perfectly, a lot of dark and deep stuff here. You know, he's talking about a lot of the deep feelings, a lot of real feeling. So the song is, you know, if you if you call the album, you know, instead of super unknown, if you if he called the album fell on black days, I'd be like, Oh, that's appropriate, so fill in dark days thought. Sorry, fell in dark I'm kidding. But lyrically, what jumped out to you, Bak, about this song? Anything in particular, I mean just just the beginning. Whatever you feared to come to life. Whatever I thought off became my life right there. Just forget you right that, boom, boom. You know just what you fear is something that is no one knows your fear, right. Yeah, no one knows what you fear unless you tell somebody correct. So if you keep all your fears inside, man, that just becomes your life. So it's all about talking. It's all about talking about what your what your fear about. Yeah, I mean I have fear of public speaking, I have a fear of being intinet with somebody. I'm a fear of you know what people think. Well, talk about and prove on it. And he kept a lot of the shit in man, and just never he just didn't let you know. People in that knew him you know like well, he I mean he said that. You know, one of the ways that he would kind of cope with a lot of those things was, you know, writing about it. But I know, I feel like something with him though, just went so deep. Or even writing about it wasn't I mean obviously it wasn't enough. You know. So and then it's your point, right, talking about it that's one thing, but then also like making sure you face it, you know, that's the other thing. So right, so he says, you know whatsoever, I fear just come to life and that it's your point. Like that, that's how the song starts. So everybody has fears and things like that, you know, but that's kind of what the song was about. Right. He said that the song is about this fear he had about everything going well and then all of a sudden you realize you're really scared and there's like no particular like events you can pin the feeling down to. It's just you realize one day that everything in your life is fucked, you know, and I mean I've so. I for me personally, I talked about during our are twenty one pilots episode. was stressed out like I like last year, I kind of add a nowhere, like started started having this like horrible borderline, like crippling anxiety that I've never had before, like we're would have like random panic attacks, like it was horrible, and I mean I'm sure maybe some of it was brought on by Covid and, you know, the pandemic and everything like that, but I mean every I've been going to therapy to like trying to because I'm trying to face it right. I'm trying to figure things out because I do not want to continue down that rope because I it's it's only going to get worse and you know, going through that it sucks and I think it probably over the years I've had, you know, anxiety, but you just kind of you're so busy, right, you just kind of keep pushing it off, pushing it off, and then here we are at a time when, hey, guess what, like were's nothing to do. You know, your home, like you can hang out with your family and stuff, but you don't have the diversion that you would if you had to go to work every day, at least for me, and you know, I'm working from home, which has been great because...

I don't have to, you know, go on, you know, go in the front lines like a lot of people have to. So for that I'm definitely grateful. But the same time, like those diversions of pretty much kept a lot of this at bay just because it's you know, haven't had the face it and deal with it, and over the years it just kept pushing it back, pushing it back. Well, I since every time I push it back, it just kept getting stronger and bigger and then next thing you know I'm home and like for the first like month or two of the pandemic I was fine, you know. And then, and I as he was saying, like you just get to a point. You don't know exactly when, but all the sudden that was just like what is this? And it was. It was terrible for like, yeah, four months of just like every day you're just like having this like weight on your chest. That's kind of tough to explain if you haven't, you know, dealt with it, but anxiety fucking blows. But but yeah, so I definitely see exactly what he's talking about in this song. But now about you might have you ever had like deal with anything like that where everything was like good and you know, and then everything just kind of goes the shit? Well, you know, a lot of things, things happens, man, and if we really want to go deep, I mean we've had a real problem to get personal, to have a child, HMM, and you go through life and you're just do live a happy life, right, but boom, boom boom, get married and now you make a decision, let's have a child and sometimes a doctor will set you down and the world just stops and it's the weirdest Guy Damn fucking moment in your life, man, when you're like, Oh shit, life just happened. Yeah, life just happened. We went through this honeymoon wedding and by it, having a house and decorating and doing all that stuff, me going out with friends and doing and now we're like, all right, I love you, let's that's that's the have a family together and it should be easy, and then the world kind of crash down, and it was. It was something. I won't go into the whole details of things, but it was. It was one of those things like man on. So I'm so happy to have someone so strong. We could do this together. Yeah, and you know, we can, you know, learned from this, not I wouldn't even say learn, just having that family around us to get through, and I hate to say, it wasn't one, it was multiple, like bad news. Yeah, you know, and we get to that point when we actually have a beautiful kid. All my Lord, I just saw a chart, dude. I'm not lying, I'm going to I'm going to find it on my phone real quick it'll take me two seconds because it's the last thing on my photo. It's my other than my daughter almost breaking her neck jumping on a PA. Six thousand five hundred seventy days since the birth till she turns eighteen. At Age at age nine, three thousand two hundred and eighty five days till she turns eighteen. Yeah, that's real numbers, dude. Yeah, that's real numbers. So, yeah, so everything was easy till it and it's not even like what can I do? What could I do? I that the doctors, you know, like modern medicine, is the reason we have two beautiful kids and...

I am grateful for that and I can write a whole book, book about the our whole experience. And that really humbled me and it made just just made me a just appreciate life and I that's that's one thing that I'll never forget that I went through. But I did fall on dark days, man, I definitely did. Yeah, and it was it hurt, man, it hurt. I can only imagine. Yeah, yeah, it's definitely not easy for any way to go through. Well, thank you for sharing that. Yeah, I'm I'm sure that can help some other people out there. Too listening, you know, if they're going through a similar situation. But yeah, I mean, and that's that's what the songs about, right, you know, it's you know, that's why he wrote it. You know, things are going well and then all of a sudden you realize you just get scared. There's no particular venty down. Things just boom, all the suddens, like everything just gets flipped on its head. And Yeah, that's that's what he was talking about here. Yeah, but to put a little lighter tone, what happened to me? Something that was going good went bad. I remember when I first coached my first teaball team and I had an assistant coach and I had a mother and I had a bunch of support systems. And then we had the first game and I'd be everybody had their job, and then the second press they said I can came. Everybody build on me. I didn't have an assistant coach. I don't know, I didn't have this, I didn't have that. Okay, and you know what happened? I had feel duty. I had to do the I had to do the lines. I forgot about that. The kids gotta practice. Oh, this kid got an injury. Get hit in the head this in this Oh my God, I'll never forgett that. I messed up royally. And and then I'll never forget the ladies look and her face when she's like, here's the slip for for the kids to get their snacks. pleat's give that to me in the next five minutes and I'll go. Lady, I can't even. I don't even know what's up and up and down is down? I'm like, I'm like, I'm like Jerry sign felt. Lady, I don't even know what's going on. Yeah, you can take those snacks and shove it up your ass, because our guts kids and show. My God, it doesn't get even easier. I'm coaching softball again. It just it, just more, more headaches, man, but I love it. I'll keep on doing it. I love my kids. Yeah, no, I love do. Being a dad is the best I we have. We're actually thankfully able to play, you know, softball and baseball this year. So our youngest is playing tea ball for the first time. I'm pretty stoked about that. We've been out in the backyard practice saying Nice every day since it's been nice out, and then my oldest is she's going to start softball, because they start with tea ball, like boys and girls mix together. They do t ball. It was called Smash Ball, which is like the best thing ever, but now they're switching over to tea ball and now my older daughter She's playing softball now. So I'm going to be coaching my younger one and I feel like if I could pick one job, I would be a just a tea ball or smash ball coach full time, like if I can make like a decent wage and still likes for my family. That is exactly we're both patient. We're we're both patient for tea ball. We're but those kids, well, yeah, we we also know the game very well, but also like the kids. It's fun hanging out with those kids. And also the parents aren't real well, normally the parents are an assholes. They're just like thank you for watching my kid for like an hour or two, will pick him up in a little bit. Yeah, you know, when you get to like little league and, you know, high school, then the...

...parents really become answerles. I'm why didn't my son play? Well, fuck you and fuck your son. So it's definitely different, but at this age, and yeah, it's like it's like fun. It's like, you know, you're the kids are just there to have fun, you're also there to teach them, you know, the fundamentals of the game and stuff, and it's a blast, man, I love it. Awesome, the thirty something fun. Oh, I did get like a moment where, like I was like I was just coaching last weekend and now we're talking about not eight, nine and ten year olds, and but we're still getting kids that just started to play. So we're we're going from my daughter that's throwing like forty, five, fifty miles an hour, you know, like, don't get me wrong, she's not bringing a heat. Yeah, I mean she swings fast, but like the results are not happening yet, but she is. She's got the tools. She's got all the tools. We just gotta just gotta, you know, get the the wrenches out and just make sure that we can find tune this this individual. But I mean from it's all size of the spectrum and it just you got to Mesh it. Well, man, that's it. Yeah, that is it. Nice. Well, then we should, we should definitely should do a coaching podcast. Coaching going right. How a coach how to coach your kids. The best sign of a coach ahead, coach, if you're out, if you're looking into a practice and you do not know who the head coaches daughter is or son, that coach is a good coach. That's Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, you need to obviously work with all the kids, for sure. I mean, if anything, you probably I feel like I would probably spend less time, example, with my kid at the field because I'm going to be spending a lot of time with her off the field, you know, and at home practicing there to a little bit. But but yeah, sorry, I that's right. No, no, I do that a lot. I Apologize. Unless the kids a Dick, I'll never want to see him again. But all right, man, tell the black days by sound guard. You think this is a legit hit or a song gone wrong? Stop. Can we just leave it at that, man. Yeah, this song is it is my favorite song on the album. Okay, easily. Just you know, they didn't over exploit the song. They the video is tasteful. You know, it's well done. Cornell's amazing. You know, he's just he just nails it. He nails this song. Can you imagine him trying to try out for a metal band or grunch band. Like can imagine him being like the Second Guy, the third guy that comes on, and then like the fourth and fifth guy have to listen to him. I just you. You'd leave him singing and then you're like yeah, Shit, I'm not gonna I think he was. I think he was ranked the best rock singer. Bye, I guess I don't write down my facts. I Apologize, but yeah, he was. He was considered one of the best rock singers ever. Yeah, I don't I don't doubt it. I don't doubt I mean. I mean you don't even have to know a song that he sings from. You know anything from audio slave, that Goddamn temple the Freakin dogs. Dude. Yeah, like you, you know you freaking make it when you're the first per since singing and you're singing with Pearl can please? Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, he's. I I don't know. I feel like I go back and forth between him and Mike Patton from faith no more. Patent has like insane range. He can do all kinds of stuff. He's such a unique vocalist, and so's Cornell. There are times, I think, when Cornell's voice those kind of get to me on occasion. It's not often, but I mean he's up there. Lane Staley, obviously I'm biased.

Burton see bell from fear factory. You gotta listen to his voice because obviously you know I fear factor. There's a lot of screaming, but he can also sing. There's songs where he does both. All like singing and then scream later on. It's like he has a great screaming voice and then when you listen him sing, I'm like, Holy Shit, this guy has a phenomenal voice and he just has great range. So's he's up there too. So yeah, I mean any one of those guys, I mean yeah, so we were spoiled growing up, man, you know, having Cornell and Lane Staley. I think vetters a good singer. Yeah, mumbles a bit here and there, but I still like his voice a lot. Mcbain had that raspy voice. I mean he wasn't you know, he wasn't like the best really anything here was a good very I think I've all of his traits. Is probably the best songwriter. That was probably his greatest attribute, but at the same time he made it accessible, which is also important. So you know, a lot of good stuff coming out back then. But yeah, this song, it's awesome. It has this like odd six four time signature, but it doesn't matter. You know the lyrics. The lyrics are words we can all relate to. We all have dark stretches in our lives. This song, I think, is a great summarization of that. I love the lyrics. That music perfectly accentuates the lyrics. I don't think anybody's really witting on my anti here. It's a legit hit, in case you didn't know. But let's let's do the fans have to say about this one. Okay, the fans have spoken and I feel this number. It's a good number. I feel like it should be higher, but eighty three point nine percent said legit hit. So what? Sixteen point one percent of people said that's a song gone wrong. I don't know who those people are. Yeah, that's yeah, but I will find you. But yeah, pretty much everybody who like actually responded to it. They just said legit hit and I agree. So there we have it. Awesome. Yeah, well, back. Thanks for Janks for joining us on this episode again. Appreciate you. You know, talking about some some deep personal matter. I'm sure there's someone out there that can, you know, Reson that, that that resonates with and hopefully it can help them as well. So we greatly. It's all about reaching it's all about reaching out, man, just like just keeping tracking your friends and people that you love, and that's it. And just just ask some true questions and say, you know, like other than the bullshit saying how you doing this and I yeah, let them. Let them talk, man. Let people talk because they want to. They want to they want to tell, they want to say what's going on in their mind. So yeah, stop being a talker. Other than me, be in talker right now. But listener now, that's part of it's your right, you know, if you want to, if you want them to give you like an honest answer. You know, obviously listening is the other part of that too. So just, you know, if something's to tell you, you know, listen now. I think one I feel like one thing that we all should hopefully have learned. I don't think it got through to everybody, but you know, this hold this past year empathy. You know, because like with this pandemic, like everybody was affected in some way or another. You know, and and that doesn't mean that doesn't make it right that it go well, everybody has a level playing field. That's not how it works. It just means everybody's going through some shit, and I think like this pandemic kind of put a face to the fact that everybody is dealing with Shit. You know, whether it's, you know there they just lost their job or they they lost a family member or dealing with like mental health issues or health issues, you know, or whatever the case is. You know, somebody's going to be dealing with something at pretty much any given point in time. You know, obviously some things are bigger than others, but you know, everybody's got something going on and I think the nicer we are, the better this world will be. Yes, and the next time you want to yell at your waiter for forgetting the catchup that you ask for extra,...

...just say hey, man, she's got things on her mind. She wants to do a good job. You know this person at the at Walmart or what have you, everybody that you deal with, you don't just just be kind at the end of the day. Just be kind, to be patient, call simmate patient. Be Patient, motherfuckers. Yeah, I mean, I'll also if you, you know, don't piss off a waiter because you're going to get catchups. Not going to be the only thing in that cup. So there's that. And another thing. Stop any restaurant owners. It's that's listening to this podcast. If you Goddamn give me a Ramikin of freaking catchup again, I will beat you in Ali. Stop with the Ramikins, with the Catcher, just give me the Goddamn bottle. Okay, I'm done. I'm sorry. All righty, now, fair enough. Ramikin, fuck that, fuck, fuck Ramikins. Sorry, I usually don't curse. I've cursed like five times. Well, this, this this song, maybe brings it out in us, I guess. But all right, man. Well, thank you very much for joinie baking.
