Superchunk’s Majesty Shredding – The Truth Behind the Title

Great “behind the music” tidbit on the origin of the title Majesty Shredding from a Q&A with Mac and The Daily Tar Heel (full article here):

And the title is a joke that started when we were in the studio. We recorded all the songs live to tape, and the producer, Scott Solter — we were listening to playback with him to see if it was a take we should keep or if we needed to fix something, and so we started this joke where if we heard a fuck-up on our part, we’d say, “Oh, you can fix that with the ‘Majesty Shredding’ app in Pro Tools, right?” We joked that there was an app that would make everything sound awesome called “Majesty Shredding,” and it ended up being the title.

Now if I could just figure out how to stop my fingers from trying to type “Majestry” every time.  I don’t think that’s even a word!
