Fowley visited WORM in the company of his dominatrix Snow Mercy. He explains on the track how the cooperation with the Worm all-stars band went. This was the last song of the evening. And sharing some of Mr Fowley's wisdom;
"...rock n roll is not death
it's only asleep for a while
the drugs change
the haircuts change
and the diseases change
and rock n roll is always gonna be here..."
