"Ty Cobb" as written by and Cornell/shepherd....
I'm sittin' in a magic hat
With smoke and mirrors
And tire rubber fires
Watch me disappear
What made it slow you down
Sucking on a ball and chain
Another motherfucker goes down the drain
Hard headed fuck you all
Just add it up to the hot rod death toll

Sick in the head sick in the mouth
And I can't hear a word you say
Not a bit, and I don't give a shit
I got the glass, I got the steel
I got the love to hate
All I need is your head on a stake
Hard headed fuck you all
Just add it on the hot rod death toll

    General Commentsong on the legendary ty cobb who introduced psychological warfare into baseball; it was his trick to maddog the other players, make them lose their cool, get them nervous or irate them to boiling point, so they'd screw up. he could get very personal in doing this, coz he took baseball so seriously that he didn't mind whether he made enemies for life with his 'special technique'; hence "I got the love to hate". he was a baseball wizard working the illusions of being an evil-psycho-killer relying on his intimidating method acting as well as on his actual ball-playing skills; hence "I'm sittin' in a magic hat with smoke and mirrors".

    General Commentty cobb was a baseball player who once killed a man and was a great basestealer cause he would slide and kick the player trying to tag him in the leg or balls with his metal spikes that he kept very sharp. he was a hard headed fuck you all type of guy

    General CommentIs that a mandolin or a banjo - either way, Soundgarden finished their career on a high, by being innovative enough to incorporate bluegrass and heavy metal. Great Band, Great last album, Great song!!!

    General Commenti didn't like this song when i first bought this album but it was so damn catchy and i loved the intro ben does and it just hooks me in and the little kim intrumental bit that keeps repeating, its just so good and soundgarden have always had their funny songs, big dumb sex for example oh god all their funny songs are so catchy and well written.
    and what a brilliant name for a song.

    oh and if ur interested they use a mandolin and a mandola
