Deftones - "My own summer (shove it)"

"My Own Summer" was written in Seattle, during the hot summer of 1994. Trapped inside of his room by the heat and sun, Chino Moreno (lead singer) boarded up his windows with aluminum foil and wished for "an apocalyptic-type thing" where all of the people on the streets would disappear and the sun would go away. He called this dreamworld "his own summer," which is where the song title comes from.

Chino said in an interview once, that he wrote this song once when he was sitting in a room. He hates day-time and light.... he always preferred night time (who doesn't)... so while he was in the room, he put foil or a blanket or something over his window so it was all dark, and wrote a song about if it was his choice, how summer would be (thus, 'my own summer'). "there are no crowds in the streets, and no sun in my own summer" proves that.

While they were recording "Around the Fur", Chino said something like he couldn't get to sleep because the sun was in his face. He said something like it was bugging him [the sun] and it reminded him of Armageddon, and we should all know what that means. Here's an example of why it would mean that: "Hey you big star, tell me when it's over, 'cause I'm through when the 2 hits the six and it's summer cloud. Come the sun aside" and then there's: "There's no crowds in the streets and no sun in my own summer" He wants to know when it's over because well, everything would be dead.
Armageddon would mean that no people would be left, therefore no crowds in the streets and no sun for anyone to see.
