“2 Hookers and an Eightball” was originally planned as a split single with “Faggot” on Elektra Records in 2001–in between the band’s falling out with the record label (who additionally were not happy with “2 Hookers”) and Vanessa leaving the band, the single never materialized. In 2002, a live recording labelled “Two Hookers” (due to space constraints) was released on Alienating Our Audience. In 2005, a studio recording was finally released under the full title on You’ll Rebel to Anything.

Lyrics:
two hookers and an eightball
can you believe that I write this shit?
two hookers and an eightball
stupid people thinking that I am cool

I definitely give myself props
that way I always get what I want
I always try to keep my edge
with two hookers and an

eightball niggaz
and all my gold glitters
as I rock them figures
and get freaky-deaky
with the front row tickets
for all of my bitches
cause my momma said to pick the very best one

two hookers and an eightball
can you believe that I write this shit?
two hookers and an eightball
it ain’t that fucking hard

I’m standing up to all my abuse
inexperience is where I lose
I’m struggling to keep my edge
with two hookers and an

eightball babies
for all the fine ladies
falling out of my Mercedes
and into the eighties
with a bad case of rabies
and the high top fadies

I’m not that fucking wonderful
no no no
I thought I told you before
puppy dog
