the solo is incendiary!!
So ... Whoever comments above me, please read all comments below ... Holy s h i t !!!! None of you (including myself) knows s h i t ... History of the bible (apocrypha is what most of you are actually referencing) ... Let me just say that we still don't know what's going on in the ocean ... And that's not even starting with the universe and history etc etc ... Just stop trying to be smart and knowledgeabl e and understand that none of us know s h i t and will all be (pleasantly) surprised when we

Some comments here are outrageous. History was created by man. None of us where around during marys time to call her names. Its just trashy talk. It would be a b**ch if god exists and jesus was your savior.
I can never get enough of this song.

About a stripper fucktards. Any dude can see that. Unless you're homo. Nobody buys heroin a dollar at a time.
Fucktards. Btw......ali e n s are coming.
That guy below me is one hundred percent correct. Couldn't have said it better myself.
This is one of the best songs on the face of this planet. Maynard is god,
This is abut all u that sell into boundrys

sb_batra
love this song as well
Love This Song
MJK just used the name Magdalena because he liked it. However, the song is actually a double meaning, that can be interpreted as either heroin/drug abuse or a stripper.
sb_batra
this song is about a very attractive stripper
those comments still make me laugh
are you guys stupid or what?
I'm with sixpastsix on this, except that I don't think it's about heroin abuse, just read the lyrics, it's pretty clear.
@flowrchic Just throwing this out there, the virgin birth came from Mizra, then Mazda, then Osiris, then Jesus. The religion of the conquered is always merged with the religion of the conquerer in order to quell rebellion. ofc sixpastsix is correct, Magdelene is being compared to heroin.
it could go both ways i suppose. as for Flowrchic response i totally agree only the uneducated would be unaware of this common rewrite in history. sadly most dont lol
Idiots. The song is about heroin abuse.
If you read your history, it will show that Mary Magdelene was actually a princess, not a prostitute. She was Jesus' wife and the 13th apostle and they had children together. The real prostitute was Jesus' mother, Mary. She got pregnant and Joseph raised the child as his own because he loved her. The church mixed it around because they didn't want it known that his mother was a whore, so they made her a virgin and made Magdelene the whore.
@ godsandheret i c s Actually Mary Magdelene was a prostitute so it could be both lol
Well, let us see if the musically inclined Maynard can produce a bottle of wine that is as good as his music. If so, I will soon be an alcoholic.

Magdalena and magdalene. Prostitution or a reference to Mary?
this song was named magdalena because manynard liked the name. I know cause I knew the real magdalena..s h e was born in michigan and moved to lubbock texas. She was a baby when maynard heard of the name through a common friend in michigan at the time. Crazy but true. Madenlena's uncle did art for tool like shirts and stuff like that. I knew her as maggie
This song is about a stripper... "your compelled to throw this dollar down" GREAT song....

This one is interesting to listen to on earphones... the beginning sounds like he's singing right in your ear.
I don't think they have split up. Manyard has kind of a Cory Taylor influence and likes to go back and forth between Tool and APC.
A "Magdalena" is a delicious muffin-type pastry from Spain.

I love this song. Manyard's voice is excellent as usual. Such a shame to see this band split up.
