"When I played him the instrumental track that [would] become 'The World (Is Going Up In Flames),' we were sitting in my small bedroom next to the tape machine. He’s sitting a foot away from me and says, 'Give me a microphone.' He immediately starts singing that song over the music. I rolled the tape and I think we recorded that in 20 minutes." -Tommy TNT Brenneck
