“Hey, can you play that ‘what do you know’ song?”

and thus is how half a dozen phone calls on the Zone begin for me each and everyday.

The majority of people that rock the radio every day only half listen to what is going on (heck I work on the radio and I only half listen!).  One of the most popular songs in modern rock right now repeats the line “What do you know?” a whole bunch so you can be forgiven to think the track is called “What Do You Know?”

The song is actually called “The Mission” and it is from Puscifer.

Pus-a-what?

Puscifer.

AKA: Maynard James Keenan

SWA?

I know right… the same guy that brought us so many fine rock songs from Tool and A Perfect Circle and even provided the vocals to best song off The Deftones White Pony record, “Passenger.”

Now Maynard rocks a vineyard in Arizona’s Verde Valley (verde means green in Spanish!) and has a Puscifer store on top of some tattoo parlour in Jerome, Arizona.

Hang on a second, Puscifer sure don’t sound like Tool! there is some chick singing!

Oh you bet… that lovely is none other than Milla Jovovich.  She’s an actress best known for playing the hot one in The 5th Element and the hot one in that video game movie.  But I’ll always remember her as ‘Michele’ in Dazed and Confused.

Puscifer? … that sure is a funny name.

It IS a funny name.  Maynard lifted it from the first episode of Mr. Show, a funny show.

fast forward to the 3:36 mark.

Holy Moly… Ronnie Dobbs… that’s… that’s

Yeah that’s that guy from Arrested DevelopmentThe Blue Man group guy

Oh right, he was married to Ellen’s hot wife!  What is her name again?

Portia.

Now where were we?.  Puscifer is the band playing the “Ronnie Dobbs” song and Maynard plays the lead singer guy.

But how come it isn’t that easy for me to steal the song off the internet?

Good question, maybe your goggle-fu is weak?

Go with yourself.
