"Hulk" (formerly "Don't Go Hulk") is a song written by Rivers Cuomo and demoed in contention for the band's 2017 album, Pacific Daydream. Demos of the song were released in 2021 as part of the digital demo compilation Alone XIII: The Pacific Daydream Years.

Appearances

Overview

"Bender" is first known to have been demoed in 2016 or 2017 for the project that would eventually become Pacific Daydream (itself a divergence from the band's planned eventual Black Album). Though Cuomo has not commented on the song's lyrical subject, bandmate Scott Shriner, a former U.S. Marine, is a possible candidate.

Lyrics

Where's my pal, where's my buddy, my friend?
Why do I have to do everything alone
Like Nietzsche in the zone?
Didn't we used to roll as a squad?
Shacking up at the Chateau Marmont
You know I don't wanna go so low

Don't go Hulk on me
Stay my Bruce Banner
I'm a real windjammer
???
I don't think it matters
If your glass shatters
You're the duck's quack
I got your front, sides, and back
I love to arm wrestle
Don't go Hulk on me
Stay my Bruce Banner
I'm a real windjammer

Broken down by the U.S. Marines
They built you up as a killing machine
You got a 65-inch screen
All I want is a brother to love
Someone I can bounce ideas off of sometimes
Our poppy lost his mind

Don't go Hulk on me
Stay my Bruce Banner
I'm a real windjammer
???
I don't think it matters
If your glass shatters
You're the duck's quack
I got your front, sides, and back
I love to arm wrestle
Don't go Hulk on me
Stay my Bruce Banner
I'm a real windjammer
