    У нашего препода по сопромату стояла на звонке. Теперь у меня эта песня ассоциируется с этим предметом. Я - больной человек :D но сопромат знаю неплохо :D и песня классная!

    I'm a Christian, and I should prob be offended at this song, but I liked it before I was a Christian, and I still like it. People try to create their own Gods, their own Savior, their own Jesus. There's so much more, like Cruelty to children, things going on across the word, etc, to be offended by a song. Never my fav DM song, but a great song none the less.

    I will forever think of Russell Brand when hearing this now. Thank you, 'Messiah Complex'.
