Ah, I don't know that I won one for Satan. I'm not out to win anything for Satan. Satan wins things on his own. If there even is a Satan. See, I don't even believe in Christianity. [And] the only thing I dig about Satan is he tells people to go @#$%& off and fights for individual freedom.

Everyone's a music critic and everyone has an opinion. some of my biggest selling records were slammed by the critics. So, if you go by critics, then it's not a success.

I go by what I like to do and then if the record's a success once I'm done recording it, then it's a success whether it sells or it doesn't, it doesn't matter. Then, if it is a critical success, that doesn't always necessarily mean that you're gonna sell a lot of records. It's the people (that decide) See, because record critics don't buy records, they get 'em for free.
