Why does J. say “Holy Monkey’s Eyebrow!” in “Downer of a Sister?"

Monkey's Eyebrow is the name of an actual town in Kentucky. When we were recording "Downer of a Sister," it was difficult to annunciate the lyrics at the beginning of the song -- getting them right and on time with the beat. I actually said that in the middle of the song, and Karl put it at the beginning because the System of a Down version has a (barely audible) exclamation at the beginning that says something like "rolling suicide."
