No one knows her name but they see her youth and use her
She's feeling free and everything she sees is truth
She's seventeen, she's got everything she needs to lose
Yeah-yeah-yeah, oh no

She's got everyone to help her on her way
She's got everyone to help her on her way
She's got everyone to help her on her way down

He seems to know right where it hurts, your pain in vain
He gives himself to you, he's in your way
And everything he does just seems a phase, insane
Yeah-yeah-yeah, oh no

He's got everyone to help him on his way
He's got everyone to help him on his way
He's got everyone to help him on his way down

Everything you touch tears at your heart apart
Of everything you see down in your soul, never let you go

You've got everyone to help you on your way
You've got everyone to help you on your way
You've got everyone to help you on your way down

You're a 666 conducer, how do you do the things you do, sir
You're a 666 conducer, how do you do the things you do, sir
You're a 666 conducer, how do you do the things you do
You're a 666 conducer, how do you do, how do you do
You're a 666 conducer, how do you do the things you do, sir
You're a 666 conducer, how do you do the things you do, sir
You're a 666 conducer, how do you do the things you do, sir
You're a 666 conducer, how do you do the things you do
How do you do the things you do, how do you do
How do you do, how do you do, how do you do

Splendid to see this still at a 6.6 rating to coincide with the title of the song.

It is obviously the devils work. . . 
 

Alright - nobody touch the dials! 
Sorry had to rate this an 8 - may have helped mess up the 6.6 rating - the only way to Heaven is via Hell!

Well done rp community! 

Oh and btw, live, BRMC are really outstanding. A real wall of sound and energy from all three players.

Ha.  Just gave it an unreasonable 5 and it dropped back to 6.6.  The tune deserves a much higher rating from these ears, though.  Great band.

 
I agree - a much higher rating for sure....but it IS perfect being a 6.6!

When the Levy breaks? Which Levy? Do we know him/her?
A levee, on the other hand, is a wall, channel or barrier that confines the flow of a river or the edge of another body of water.
 

...seriously, guys?..i have to drop my vote to a one and we still can't conduce six-point-six?..

...somebody's not doing their job, man...


I love T Rex!!
Well done everyone for keeping this at 6.6. 

It is indeed an excellent tune though and should of course be at least an eight. 
Back down to 6.6 with my 8>1.

6.66 rounded off is 6.7, if that's any consolation to the beast fans out there in Paradise.

Not exactly, it is the number of the beast, who is the anti-christ, not the devil.  You could say, however, that the anti-christ is the incarnation of the devil, in antithesis to Christ being the incarnation of God.  In that sense you would be correct.
No comments since last August so thought I'd just chime in. Trying to work and unable to. So stop I do and rate this an 8.
The silly religio-philosophical discussions below remind me about the reaction to BOC's classic "Don't Fear (The Reaper)"  Wow! Was that about suicide!?!?!  It's only rock-n- roll...

It's now at 6.7. I see I had rated it 1, although I've always liked the song. I guess I must have been putting my finger on the scale. I'll take my finger off and put the rating where it should be: 9.

It feels as if that were the only stage they belong to!

It's one of those bands who's songs vary between
1 and 10!

This is among the good ones!

Can anybody report how they are as a LIVE-BAND?
 
They are pretty amazing. Loud, but amazing.

According to the dictionary, a "conducer" is someone or something that leads to or contributes to a result. "666" is, of course, a reference to the devil.

The verses are all about people being led into sin/despair/bad lifestyle choices/self-destruction (pick the synonym that best fits your worldview) by others taking advantage of them:

     No one knows her name but they see her youth and use her . . .

     He's got everyone to help him on his way, down . . .


The "666 conducer" is the one exploiting and misleading them.  (The sin of "scandal," for those of us raised on the Baltimore Catechism.)  The singer is questioning whether he/she/it has a consience:

     You're a 666 conducer/How do you do the things you do, sir?

This band is ok, I think the best assessment I would have of th........{#Sleep}

Anybody notice the nearly identical song structure between this, and "The Perfect Nanny", from Mary Poppins?

 

That's funny! ... oh wait, were you serious?

This piece of awesome would play well with "Red Right Hand" by Nick Cave, methinks. {#Devil_pimp}

These guys have a good groove. Thanks to RP for the introduction, albeit a little late.

Well, 666 = the devil or evil and conducer is similar to contributor. The lyrics are useful (see lyric link).

One of those bands that, if you are familiar with them, you don't have to look to see who's singing. Very unique sound. A good thing.
I will this weekend Bill.
It's better every time...without the Satanic overtones of course.

Was 6.5 but once I gave it my honest rating of 9, it's back to 6.6. I induced the conducer :motor:

You realize, of course, that I'll now have to monitor the situation and adjust my rating to *keep* this at a 6.6, don't you?

Speaking of which I have it on good authority L&R are back together and going on tour. That authority you ask? David J. as told to Mark Fontana, lead singer for the Blue Hawaiians who David J wants as their opening act. Now you're in the know.
Thanks SmackDaddy. I'll be on the lookout for these guys.
Hmm, I just commented that Take Me Out makes me want to listen to Trampled Underfoot. This song makes me want to hear Misty Mountain Hop. I guess that means it's definitely my problem.
and it still is..-- Intriguing, the average score on this song is 6.6

This track is in heavy rotation (payola, Bill?). I could stand to hear less of it, as it might help me get into it more if the occurences were trimmed back from its current 1x per day (or every other day). Once every two weeks would be fine by me.
Bill, thanks for playing BRMC...cash should arrive later today
This is the only song on this album that I don\'t like. I\'m not offended by it--it just doesn\'t do anything for me. :no:
These guys end up being so much less than they should be. Not sure why. Seems like they\'ve got the formula to be kickass, but they can\'t quite manage to connect boot to buttcheek.
