  • As far as humor goes, I've always been a very insecure person and I've always wanted to be liked.
  • Finding fresh song topics can sometimes be quite difficult.
  • I also like to eat very much, so I like all different types of foods.
  • I don't know what to say to that, but I have to agree with Johnny that, yeah, we do touch upon things that most men would rather not admit: That we feel pain, we cry, get sad and sometimes don't deal well with disappointment.
  • I don't really like to play live. I don't like to be on stage. I feel very self-conscious.
  • I drink for the effect, because it loosens up the tongue a little bit.
  • I feel that I've grown up a little bit and I'm actually ready to settle down.
  • I find that different types of music are good for certain activities.
  • I guess I've learned that there's really no such thing as a bad label, there is only a bad contract.
  • I like to put on hardcore when I have to clean my apartment, which I hate to do, but it's motivational. I like old heavy metal when I'm outside working on my car. Music has definite functions for me.
  • I stay way from that area, and there's only so many songs you can write about love, sex and death.
  • I think aerobics are great, of course, but it just bores me out of my mind.
  • I think anyone who has an opinion, and voices it, will offend someone.
  • I think for the most part it really doesn't matter how good an album is; I think it really comes down to musical climate.
  • I think I've changed a lot as a person.
  • I used to try to run five miles every other day, which I worked up to and I was doing it, but I was subjected to my own thoughts for forty minutes without any sensory input, and I couldn't stand what I thought.
  • I want to stay away from politics, or else I'll probably end up putting my size fifteen foot into my mouth.
  • I'm a big fan of the effects of alcohol.
  • I've always been very image prone, along the lines of bands like Black Sabbath and even Devo.
  • I've been told by people that it's okay to cry but, you know what, it's been used against me.
  • I've been wearing black pants and green shirts now for like thirteen years. It works.
  • If I wasn't bound to Brooklyn, due to my own personal reasons like taking care of my mother and the fact that this is where the band is based, I would probably move to Iceland.
  • If they weren't laughing with me, okay; if they want to laugh at me it's better than nothing.
  • If we're going to be dumped into, say, goth metal or something like that, I really don't mind being called that.
  • Instead of slashing my wrists, I just write a bunch of really crummy songs.
  • It became more and more difficult after drinking beer, or while drinking beer on stage, to execute vocals in between burps.
  • It seems to be that southern Europeans are just more intimate socially, whereas I like a lot of personal space - like, a mile from the nearest person is fine for me.
  • It's bad poetry executed by people that can't sing. That's my definition of Rap.
  • Most bands don't even last fourteen months let alone fourteen years.
  • Nordic people are very stand-offish, but to go to Greece, Italy, Spain or Israel, men are all over men and stuff.
  • One of the things I've always personally tried to stress with this band was to have some kind of visual aspect and to be consistent with it - like, not to change.

  • So, I simply switched over to wine because it was not carbonated.
  • Sometimes, I write '60s or '80s style pop songs.
  • Technically, at this point we're no longer with the label; we've fulfilled our contract.
  • There's a lot of things that go on when you're on tour that cannot be controlled. I'm not even talking about myself, but of course there's sexual activity and drugs, fighting and language; it is certainly not a place to raise a family.
  • We did a lot of in-store signings around that time, and occasionally guys came up with that issue of Playgirl and wanted me to sign the centerfold.
  • We've been fortunate that we could choose, from all the songs I'd written, those that the band considered to be the best.
  • Well, darkness with humor... I'm not an extremely suicidal or sad person.
  • Yes, there are times when I get extremely depressed and how I sublimate those feelings is through music.
  • People think, "Oh, Pete's sexist because he takes advantage of women." No, we take advantage of each other.
  • I want to be the only fucking man in this world. I want an army of my sons and then find a planet to attack.
