Band Name Origins:

  • In fact, (Skinny Puppy frontman) cEvin Key had the idea for the name before Nivek Ogre had joined. While the name can be interpreted a number of different ways and has many different levels of meaning, the basic idea is that of an abused, neglected animal who doesn't speak much but when he does it is a pain filled yelp. Early on, the concept for the band was to look at the whole world through the eyes of a dog. This resulted in Ogre's lyrics for "K-9" which became what is in some ways the first Puppy song.

  • Rumors had it that after recording their first demo tape (and a few marijuana joints later), cEvin Key woke up the next morning with the name "Skinny Puppy" written on it. It's a cute story... but not accurate. In fact, the name came to them because a friend of the band had a Levrier puppy they were quite attached to, and being also fans of horror movies, the name "Skinny Puppy" sounded just right to them.

It reminded me of some nature program I once saw on TV, where baby sharks tried to kill each other inside their mother's womb.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Blue Serge"
The Funny Lyrics:
After supper, oh much fatter
How to reconcile this matter?
Why They're Funny:
Suffice it to say, it doesn't really fit with the rest of the song. Not that these guys aren't known for some rather nonsensical lyrics at times...

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Warlock"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Evolve and try over and over
wasted truth why call at all blue hot lines
eventual decline
with the right attitude you will succed blue resent
that discontent
sidestep define the state of things so far crazy
Why They're Nonsensical:
Yep, and the lyrics go on like that throughout the 6~7 minute song. Chances are, ohgre (vocal) did it to confuse people, or to annoy casual (mainstream) audience. whatever the reason, it surely makes no sense. I've heard from a fan that the song is about insanity...but then again some claim it's about censorship...others claim it's about pain and suffering...while I think it's just random words that popped up in the vocal's head while he was stoned.

Boasting in Song Lyrics:

"Magnifishit"
The Boasting Lyrics:
I am the Liar's nation - Oh yeah!
I am the Undisputed God - Oh yeah!
Comments:
The entire song is the holy grail of this topic. It's a sarcastic take on boasting and is full of unrealistic boasts, the most biting of which is too explicit to post but extremely absurd and funny.
