'Back to School' was a mistake. A calculated song, that had been built up with only one aim in mind: It should be a single. 'Back to School' was released because I was an idiot. I wanted to prove something [to the record company]. Months later, after White Pony was released, they wanted us to do a new version of 'Pink Maggit'. They said we lost our heaviness, and there were no more singles on the album. First, I wanted to stick this idea up my ass, but then I thought: 'I'm gonna show those fuckers how easy it is to create a hit-single.' And so I rapped a hip hop part on that song, we shortened it and half an hour later, the hit-single was ready to roll on.

back to school really doesn't belong on this album... pink maggit suits it so much more... and by the time you get to the end of the album I am like ... oh man i kinda already heard a different version of this song

Dude, Back to School. Isn't "really" on the album. It was originally a single put out by the record company. Chino was rather unhappy with the mixing of the song, and actually didn't want it to be released.

Or so I've heard. I usually just skip Back to School

Yeah, screw 'em! Album rules hard, though. Pink Maggit in itself is amazing. Passenger, going into Change, and then Pink Maggit. Just, amazing...

Damn tough. Not even sure how to rank this.

Digital acutally might be my fav. So I'd go:

Digital Bath > Change > Passenger > Pink Maggit > Knife Prty > Elite > Feiticeira > RX Queen >
Teenager > Korea > Street Carp

But first four (maybe even 5) constantly changes

Still my favourite record ever. Genuinely changed my life. Deftones have been a little tainted now though, since they were my ex and mys shared favourite, and constant sex soundtrack. Knife Prty in particular causes mixed emotions, still sexiest song ever though.

My ranking is (roughly, it's hard to choose: Change - Pink Maggit - knife Prty - rx queen - passenger - elite - digital bath - street carp - Korea - feiticeira - teenager. Teenager used to my second fav when I was younger, guess it hit a nerve. These days I prefer the idiot version on the bsides album
