* CreatorBacklash: The band has expressed disappointment with ''Antipop'', finding it unfocused and relying too much on the guidance of others. Les Claypool has some fondness for the song "Coattails Of A Dead Man" though, which is why it was included on the GreatestHitsAlbum ''They Can't All Be Zingers'' instead of either of the album's official singles, "Lacquer Head" and "Electric Uncle Sam". He confirmed if the band hadn't taken a hiatus after its release, there's a chance Primus would have broken up for good.
