"She was sittin' on a bench, Mama
Thinking up a game to play
Seems I was holding a wrench, Mama

#WhereIsMyMind (Featured in Fight Club)
The song “Where Is My Mind?” was released on Surfer Rosa in 1988, the band‘s place in cult-movie status was solidified when it was played over the ending of 1999‘s now cult favorite Fight Club. The song choice was perfect: The opening strumming was the best accompaniment to buildings collapsing, and the actual lyric “Where is my mind?” directly refers to the narrator and his delusions of splitting into his Tyler Durden persona.
