The audio here is terrible. Sounds Mono maybe? If you listen to the real track the guitars are so much more ballsy. AWESOME song though.

awesome from the nostalgia standpoint. really not their best and understandable why it's a "leftover". cheap video too, hate to say it. must have cost nothing to make.

I think they took what they could from this song and broke it down into riffs used on "Far Beyond Driven". The breakdown from "Use my Third Arm" is the verse for one example. The musicianship is great as always, but I can definately see why this was cut from the final track list. The opening riff does nothing for me. Has that signature Pantera groove, but way too poppy for lack of a better word.

It's obvious the band didn't think this was up to snuff and honestly I don't feel it stands up to anything on "Vulgar Display". If that's complaining, then oh well, take it as you will. I'm glad they took those couple riffs and incorporated them into better tunes on "Far Beyond Driven". Which also is a collection of songs that blow this out of the water.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but come on. Enough with the f ucking whining. Yeah, it is whining. Dont say you're just being honest or whatever. It's f ucking whining.

They didn't HAVE to do this you know, they did this for the fans. This was a nice way of the band giving the fans something (if anything) Pantera related that they have been wanting so bad ever since Dime passed.

This isn't a single, or an album, or something that should be criticized. Its basically a wicked nice gesture from the band to the fans. They could have just said "f uck it" and not released anything, but they didn't.

To take it even further, they offered die hard Pantera fans a chance to live on through Pantera history by including them in a music video. Fans were even able to take their own video at home if they couldn't show up to the shoot. That's pretty f'ing amazing.

To sit here and say "oh well it's just crap and it's a cheap video" seriously....just shut your mouth. Shut your f ucking mouth. You seriously sound like such a douche, it's not even funny. Have some f ucking respect.

Don't even bother replying to this, because I'm done reading. Seriously, if you reply to this it just means you can't shut your mouth and let it be. There is NOTHING you can say to insult me, convince me, or anything else. So don't waste your time.

This is one of those cases where if you can't say anything nice, keep your f ucking childish troll mouth shut!

Ya they did it for the fans, has nothing to do with the upcoming rerelase anniversary of a certain album which will have piss as the bonus song, nothing to do with $$$$ at all... not saying its bad that they released it, just a cynic lol

Dude needs to relax, this is no selfless act. Pantera's making a lot of money off a song that they never felt lived up to their standards... funny how that works.

Its not even really a tune eh, structure is completely fvcked...definitely a demoesque 'riff harvester' type track that Vince dug up outta somewheres

Agreed Netro, the parts themselves evolved into much better respective songs...this 'release' is entirely superfluous

Despite all the hype, the song itself is nothing to get too worked up about whether you like or dislike it, but it's better than nothing. The video is the real draw for me.

Really, the only thing that sounded remotely like whining was from "Woah" (#1/4/8)

On one hand, I'm a little dissapointed that so much of it sounds exactly like the song off Far Beyond Driven, but at times there's a clear Vulgar Display vibe in a number of parts too, so it's a neat marriage of the two records that had fairly different sounds. So yeah, it's B-side quality, but still a nice rarity to release for fans.

How's that for whining?

they wanted fans to send them video of them rocking out to pantera so they could make a video of it for the song, imagine that...a band you look up to actually wanting to put your ugly mug in a video for a song that in all reality is probably the last "new" song they'll ever put out, sorry it's not like a micheal bay film with sh** blowing up, it's just pantera fans doing what they do
