This likely goes back to closer to its original release, when it's said to have been big on freeform radio. The word's more benign definition is "a bundle of sticks or twigs bound together as fuel." He said something to the effect that he'd rather make a fool of himself than have somebody else make a fool of him. Now I did have the film on in the background on Decades years back, so the song may have caught my attention then...but this felt different. It was like a fairly intense deja vu moment. I may look into that album just based on that song.
