Wiojg, it's actually about Jerry Cantrell's father who fought in Vietnam. The members of his platoon called him "The Rooster" because he had a bunch of hairs that stood up on his head. Thus, resulting in him looking like a rooster.

This song is about his high school football years.

They're the best of the grunge genre. Unique and emotionally stirring. I think 'Jar of Flies' is my favorite. I think....or maybe 'Dirt'.
