Recently, frontman Corey Taylor looked back at the ’Knot's breakthrough release, revealing that his favourite song "by far" from the debut – and, in fact, out of the entirety of the band's back-catalogue – is Scissors.
"I love it because every time we would play it, the whole second half was improvised," he said. "We played at each other, free form, free prose, everything. It was violent and gorgeous. Nothing will ever replace it for me – when we stopped playing it live, I had a hard time enjoying our sets for a very long time."
He also pointed to crushing single Eyeless as a lyrical highlight, adding: "I’ve always loved the lyrics for Eyeless. I’d never written anything as raw and open before. It was all about the absence of my father, being a teenage addict and also being forced to enter NA and Alateen when I was still fucked up. In treatment, they kept telling me, ‘It’s all in your head.’ That line resonates with me to this day."
