Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Don't you feel a whole lot better?"

Answer: "All the Pigs, All Lined Up"

"All the Pigs, All Lined Up" was released on the domestic Halo 7 as a remix for "March of the Pigs". When Trent performs live, however, he oftentimes integrates the ending chant from this remix -- "All the pigs are alllined up" -- while singing the original song.
2. "Devils speak of the way in which she'll manifest. Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress."

Answer: "Reptile"

"Reptile" had two different remixes on the "March of the Pigs" singles: "Reptilian" and "Underneath the Skin".
3. "Black and blue and broken bones. You left me here. I'm all alone."

Answer: Piggy

"Piggy" from "The Downward Spiral" seems to have some similarities to "Somewhat Damaged" from "The Fragile". Both songs talk about being left behind and/or forgotten.

"The Downward Spiral", the song, is a very colorful representation of depression-induced suicide.
