POSSIBLE MEANING OF ALICE IN CHAINS ‘THE DEVIL PUT THE DINOSAURS HERE’ NEW ALBUM TITLE & MORE

Alice In Chains’ holiday message to fans hinted at the new album title The Devil Put The Dinosaurs Here. The album title has really divided fans, many GrungeReport.net commenters actually came up with some alternate titles:

The Devil Made Dinosaurs
Dinosaurs, I have a fetish for them
God Put The Humans Here
Jerry’s Neo Creoticism Tongue-Twisted Tales of 6 Gun Astral Dinosaur Adventure
Square Dick Butt-Plug From Planet Dog Shit
The Devil Put GrungeReport.net’s Commenters Here

Andrei and some other commenters discussed what could be the meaning of the title, “For those are wondering about the new album title. It was sort of inspired by the “evolution vs. creationism” debate. Some Christians believed that dinosaur bones and fossils were buried by Satan in order to turn humans away from God.” Another commenter mentioned that he had a connection at AIC’s record label who told him that Sean Kinney came up with the album title.

  • Edward R. Murrow

    Yes, Sean Kinney came up with the title. Inspired by Bill Hicks/Lewis Black. Use the google.

  • Pedro

    I really hope this is just another of Sean’s jokes, and that it isn’t the real title.

  • GwynnKatie

    Edward has spoken. Heh The Devil Put My Christmas Toys Here. lilrockable was right, and so were you.
    Peace

  • ANTHONY KIEDIS

    Aaaaaaand, fuck you Jerry Cantrell and your 12 inches cock and my ex girlfriend DANI !!!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE YOU TWO FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK OUT OF MY MIND !!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE YOU DANI I HATE YOU I HATE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

  • gsush

    They’re just mocking the christian belief system of denial for the natural order of things (would have been aliens but, humans cant say for sure that they exist)!

  • Scott McLean

    I’ll look this up, but anyone remember the sci-fi TV espisode where a dinosaur is in charge of some process to send a person to Earth’s? future, but requires that the original (person) is destroyed. Dinotatorship! I’m not saying anything serious about this because it’s sci-fi and fun.

  • Scott McLean

    Jerry can write a song referring to that or maybe I will or something much, much different.

  • Scott McLean

    I think it was an episode of The Outer Limits, but I don’t remember.

  • Dan

    I like the title because it’s different for AIC. Would people have preferred the title “Black Jar of Dirt and Angst”?

  • Steve Mac

    I knew from the moment j read the title that it was a Sean Kinney idea.

  • GwynnKatie

    ScottMcL, Wow. The Outer Limits. Just went back to being six again.
    Yes – this title does feel like Sean’s Mercurial sense of humor —
    actually more like all four of them together, like an old Headbangers Ball episode. No offense to Layne or Mike Starr.

    Dan said:
    “Would people have preferred the title “Black Jar of Dirt and Angst”?
    After yesterday afternoon – I am thinking for many of them – Yes.

    Really, really awful what happened to folks in Russia. Hurts.
    Off topic I know – but just saying. Really scary sad.

    Peace

  • LAYNE STALEY

    It’s seriously fascinating but the title still stinks regardless how thought provoking and intellectual it is.

    It’s just not something Alice In Chains did, and should not, do.

    Even Andy Wood thinks it’s lame.

    Thank God I died,

    Layne Staley.

  • Mellysa

    Layne Staley above omg hahaha

  • bon3z

    @It was sort of inspired by the “evolution vs. creationism” debate@

    Wow… thank you cap. obvious!

  • Mia

    Now that I know the meaning behind it I like it more. It’s still different for AIC, but its okay.

  • Butthead

    Terrible title. Good god, you know this album is going to suck with a laugable title like that. Kurt Cobain just rolled in his grave for a fifth time. Let me guess, Barney the dinosaur is going to be on the cover???

  • GwynnKatie

    Butthead, come on honey — you can do better than that…
    Ive seen it. Come up with some new material.
    Seriously.

    Peace

  • Blind Lemon

    Jim Morrison, Yeppers. You Are. Get her any color she wants – have the action set so she can play it with ease, throw in a custom leather strap & a decent variety of picks.
    Spend many hours patiently teaching her.
    She will love you forever.
    :D

    Peace

  • the greatest

    as long as the songs are good then who really gives a shit about the title?

  • GwynnKatie

    Yes. Exactly. Still love the title. Can’t wait to see the art.

  • Scott Weiland

    Hey Eddie Vedder, I didn’t really appreciate it when acused me of ripping of your band. Could you please apologize??? I used to really love Pearl Jam, but haven’t been able to listen to your music since 1993, because it really hurt my feelings.

  • Eddie Vedder

    Fuck you, Scott Whineland

  • GenXLady

    Umm…at the risk of feeding the troll who has been posting here tons lately (ANTHONY KIEDIS, LAYNE STALEY, AXL, PHIL ANSELMO, etc)…maybe go GET A LIFE dude. Your comments are clogging things up.

    From another thread on here, directed at a regular poster: “…you are giving me DICK DRIP”…Dick drip? Dick drop? Dick Drip, Drop, Drought? Are you experiencing difficulties, son? They make stuff for that you know.

    Ok, sorry everyone. Back to the subject at hand now…

  • LAYNE STALEY

    Im not all the trolls. Just LAYNE STALEY. Why dont you go get a life!!!!!!

  • ROBERT PLANT

    Babe!! Babe!!

  • cerealkiller

    People complain about the title being dumb yet they call jerry cantrell Jearbear WTF!!!!?

  • Jeff

    For the record, “Square Dick Butt Plug From Planet Dog Shit” was originally from a Blabbermouth user.

    Such a brilliant title deserves proper credit. Just saying.

  • ShaneC

    I’ve decided that I don’t really care about the title.

    I’ll still check out the album. However, I am totally convinced that when I listen to this new disc & BGWTB back to back, I will not be able to tell the difference.

    I’d be willing to make wagers if it wasn’t all a matter of opinion. It’ll be the same, I have no doubt.

    Hollow wasn’t even good enough to be a b-side.

  • GwynnKatie

    Ahh Jeff — heya what’s up man. How’s WA State. Hope it’s that Jeff.

    GenX, <3

    Blind Lemon, It's like early 1900's cartooning, and it does resemble the art in Tripod… I love The Holly Border and the Bells, the way the sack looks full of creatures instead of toys.

    Alura, your 1st post yesterday made me laugh so loud on my break at work I got in trouble. Score. The Huh?, Eh? OOokay post… heh

    Robert Plant said:

    "It is the summer of my smiles —
    flee from me, Keepers of the Gloom.
    Speak to me only with your eyes.

    It is to you I give this tune.

    Ain't so hard to recognize… Ooh…
    These things are clear to all from time to time.
    OOOOhhhh…"

    Fixed.

    Goat Tail, profound – yeah. From 550 to over 1200 injured. So much negative energy from so many places in a short 48 hours. I saw two nearly fatal car accidents within 12 minutes of each other yesterday driving my Mom to grocery. Like came up on them right before the cops got there. Never happened before in my life. Hope it never happens again. Don't understand all of the negativity and not only here.
    I am guilty of it as well. And the internet? Already sides are chosen — it happened, oh no it didn't…
    Meteors. Dinosaurs. Nukes.

    Peace

  • Jerry Cantrell

    “Rawr” does NOT mean “I love you” in dinosaur. You ever seen Jurassic Park? It means I’m going to fucking eat you.

    Greg said: “This is the weirdest fucking thread I’ve ever seen.”

    Yeah – you think? And I certainly haven’t helped things much.

    Kinda tired of the same poor person who obviously has Dissociative Identity Disorder and at last count over 11 screen names doing repetitive, tiresome cut-and-paste posting. Look man — if you’re gonna troll a thread, come up with some original shit.

    This band is worth at LEAST your best effort.

  • GrungeLuv
