It's never been about making money.~Rob Zombie


Money Making Money Never

I'm not a big fan of the thought that you can become a star by winning a contest. I'm sort of old-fashioned. I think people need to get out there and they need to work and they need to do their music because they love it. If they become successful, then great, and if they are not, whatever.~Rob Zombie


Love Work Music

Without really analyzing it, I grew up in Massachusetts, so the Salem witch trials were always something that I was around.

You Know Average

Those days if you drove cross country and you broke down on the side of the road, and the sign says 200 miles to the next gas station, you knew you were so screwed.~Rob Zombie


Road You Down

I understand why some kid in his bedroom in Wisconsin thinks downloading songs couldn't hurt anyone. True fans will buy the CD or go see the movie after downloading, but to say it doesn't affect anyone - come on.~Rob Zombie


Hurt Go True

When you have too many people and you're trying to satisfy everybody's input, you usually end up with something so incredibly generic that it has no point of view.~Rob Zombie


End People Trying

I am like the Jack Nicholson of the Kings - every single game. If there was a game tonight I wouldn't be here. I used to play hockey. That was my original thing. My first thing, I wanted to play professional hockey.~Rob Zombie


I Am Game Play

I think so much about everything. I'm obsessive.~Rob Zombie


Think Everything I Think

Weird Know Everything

I wanted it to be like a high quality, drive-in movie.~Rob Zombie


Quality High Like

I like 1977 because it is more primitive. If it were modern day, like one Universal guy was like wouldn't they just use their cell phone? I guess he did not read that it was 1977 in the script.~Rob Zombie


Day Cell Phone Phone

NC-17 means that you get it in like 3 theaters. They won't run the spots on MTV, won't run the advertising. It's the kiss of death so there was really no other choice.~Rob Zombie


Death Kiss Advertising

School Fun High School
