It's not a bad song - I like it. I never thought it was a great song, but I like it on the album and think it sounds pretty good. I don't think it necessarily stands out to me though.

I think the lyrics are wrong across the whole internet... I'm pretty positive the main lyric in the chorus is not:

The sweeter the brew, the feeling starts coming back

I hear:

The sweeter the bruise, the feeling starts coming back...

Since bruises are often described as black & blue etc...

Great post.
That video performance really is awesome. I typically prefer Foo studio tracks over live versions, but a lot of IYH had a compressed studio sound and a raw, big live sound that was great: this song, End Over End, DOA, The Last Song. Like many, I like this song, but don't love it. I do enjoy that the timing and vibe is different from most FF tunes. The live ending to this and End Over End are both so much better live.

^^ It's 100% "bruise".

It fits the context, it rhymes with "blues" in a preceding line, and you can actually hear the "z" pronounced.

Good spot though.

looks like i commented previously on this one but no matter ... it's still one of my top Foo tracks, it's so immense, lyrically and instrumentally! I need to play this entire album again, haven't heard it in a long time.

... i am glad this was revisited, why did we stop these track talks? We were supposed to cover every track!
