Mastodon – “Curl of The Burl” Does The Song Rock Or Not?
Today’s Rock or Not band is Atlanta’s Mastodon and their song Curl Of The Burl a song vocalist Brann Dailor describes as being about meth heads in the woods of West Virginia. “The meth heads look for certain types of knots in a tree. That would be the curl of the burl. They cut it out of the tree, drive it into town, sell it to furniture makers then go buy more meth. It’s like crackheads who steal copper from Lowes and sell it. We really couldn’t think of a better subject matter. It fascinated us”.
