Zakk Cervini: "Money" is one of my favorite songs on the record. It started off weird—it was a really long day. It was 11 at night when they finally came up with the chorus for that song, and there was no production. There were field drums in the background. I wasn't into it at all! It sounded like a reggae, Jamaican song at first. It was a 3 A.M. afterthought that became the first song on the album.
Originally they were going to intro the song by playing it acoustically with the mic in the room, then it was going to bust into the song. But the sounds of them just entering the studio made it cooler and more fun.
