* BodyHorror: The video for "Shock To The System" features a guy getting beaten up and his camera smashed (in an obvious allegory for the LA riots) and then stop-motion ''merging'' with his camera to form a weird cyborg-looking thing.

* HesBack: ''Devil's Playground,'' his comeback album in 2005, made damn sure you knew right out of the gate that he was playing rock and roll again (after all, his last album was 1993's poorly-received ''Cyberpunk'').
