Wow what a song
The lyrics in this song make me realize that my generation is a bunch of snatches.
Layne's vocals get me every single time.
Vets to them all loved ones that know one will see we see what they are doing GOD BLESS THE FAMILIES
I love this song but why the f*** is it on my Slipknot radio.? Kinda weird Pandora.
This song is about his dad. His dad was in the Vietnam war and his nickname was rooster
What an anthem for Vietnam vets THANK YOU FOR BETTER OR WORSE HUMANS DIED
He is not going to die. Never, got that. He just will not die.
Great song.

Dis song is da shiet, but it makes me want to jump off my roof while holding a rooster in my hands...
When asked what my spirit animal is (a tradition of my school's track team) my reply is always, "the rooster."
Can't get enough of Chains! Miss ya Staley and the old crew
My 11th grade yr! 1997 ;)
Great song
All respects to Jerry Cantrell's Father and My Fellow Veterans. ...God and Country...

Mind over matter
It's no wonder a lot of the great ones were suicidal at times. Drug induced or not, it's a life a lot like war, though I know it doesn't hold a candle to actual warfare. Nothing fair about it. You can't stay 18 and army green forever, and asking yourself to do so is like mission impossible at times.
It's about keeping mental strength thru
Viet-nam, too many Americans bled for that real-estate
The rooster is a bad a**
I like this song. I'd also like for Pandora to play a f**kin black label society song on black label society radio
Love this song

You know he ain't gonna die
Ain't found away to kill me yet !!
I saw Alice in chains back in the early 90s st the channel in boston ma they just reopened it and my boss knew the club owner I got to hang back stage and meet the band lane was a very short guy but cool as s**t I got to toast a drink with the band beside my kids being born this was a highlight of my life Godspeed lane party your balls off in heaven like I know you are mesh pit boston ma

bradfordt4
Great song on an amazing album
This is my second favorite song by Alice in chains besides check my brain
Layne has one of the most amazing voices ever!!
This track exemplifies AIC at its best. Raw and gritty vocals supported by rockin guitar licks. Top 5 in my book.

Probably my favorite Alice in Chains song. It's a good pump up song.
No it's about gysgt Carlos hathcock who made the marine corps sniper program
the rooster is the soldier, not the problem...!
The song is about one of the members uncles that fought in Vietnam
littleferrhi s
This song is about how world powers use military force:For example vietam ; Iraq ; American revolution ;etc. The rooster is the problem.
