Trivia / Primus

  • Creator Backlash: The band has expressed disappointment with Antipop, finding it unfocused and relying too much on the guidance of others. Les Claypool has expressed fondness for the song "Coattails Of A Dead Man" though, which is why it was included on the Greatest Hits Album They Can't All Be Zingers instead of either of the album's official singles, "Lacquer Head" and "Electric Uncle Sam".
  • He Also Did: Les performed the theme to South Park, composed the theme to Robot Chicken, and composed the soundtrack to Mushroom Men.
  • The Pete Best: Original guitarist Todd Huth, though he did compose guitar melodies on Frizzle Fry. Subverted with Jay Lane, who would rejoin and perform on Green Naugahyde.
    • Sausage was a brief in-all-but-name reunion for the original lineup of Primus (Claypool, Lane, and Huth). Their 1994 album Riddles Are Abound Tonight is the only official release they've all appeared on together.
    • The drummer before Jay Lane, Tim "Curveball" Wright, never recorded as Primus, however a snippet of concert footage appears of him on the Animals Should Not Try To Act Like People EP.
  • What Could Have Been...: Imagine if James Hetfield accepted Les into Metallica.
