Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?
Arthur Yoria: "Happy Birthday." I don't like the changes and the lyrics are trite.
RO: What is the best lyric in the world?
AY: "His brains were splattered on the sidewalk/ I could see what he was thinking."
RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you. What do you do?
AY: Duck it and keep playing, or if it hits me I'll break it against the side of the stage and then go slice the motherfucker who threw it.
RO: Without worrying about time, space, or physical laws, what would be the ultimate gig?
AY: In a black hole that pays well.
RO: What will you buy with your first million dollars?
RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?
AY: Pudding for you.
RO: That's sweet. If you could canonize another musician as a saint, who would it be and what would they be the patron saint of?
AY: GG Allin. He'd be the patron saint of flying feces.
