25.     I like to make videos because I like to see visuals to our music, but the last video was just what our record label thought what was MTV wanted to see, and I will never ever ever do that again. Our label [Maverick] is really cool, they don't really tell us to do anything, but this last video we made they finally asked a favor of us, and it was a really one sided version of what we are all about. It was all this artsy, gay shit, and Im not really into that. Im more into the harsh, brash parts of life that are just reality. Im about to make a video myself and direct it for a song called "Around the Fur" it'll be just crazy, and MTV Im sure wont play it because you cant show that kind of stuff on TV.
Chino Moreno (Deftones)
