I'm not sure. However, this is a song they've never performed live to my knowledge.

It's about people who say they're nihilists/satanists/whatever to be "edgy" and rebellious, not because they actually are. Alexi is also a fan of The Big Lebowski, which might have something to do with it.

Looking for meaning in popular metal bands is normal a bad idea.


Bands with actual views tend to not be as easy to digest.

CoB is usually pretty straightforward. Whenever they're not all "omg kill me" or "omg imma kill you", it's not that hard to figure out what they're on about.

I don't know why, but this was very amusing.

its prolly about getting drunk and fckin swedish demon sluts
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

I think this comment is more important than most recognize.

To make it as a big pop band, you have to keep pumping out songs that sound ironic, bittersweet, etc. whatever makes it easy for the listener to project into them.

Thus it's not so much meaning as the appearance of.

Also, Children of Bodom is the best way to get AIDS that does not directly involve your anus.

I still can't figure out why you'd write stuff on your guitar when you could have a Hello Kitty strat like all the other metal kids do.
