NME published an interview with Greg in which they asked him about some declarations Greg had allegedly made (to the NME) saying that 80% of his fans were complete idiots. He replied that he never said that. He said that his words had been taken out of context and that what he had said is that in any random sample of the general population you'd find that 80% of the people are complete idiots. When they guest-starred in Bruce Dickinson's radio program in England on 2.21.1995, they talked for a while about the 80% issue. At one point they were explaining that Jay got beaten up as a kid for being punk and Bruce asked "why?!". Greg's answer was "I told you Bruce: because 80% of the people are idiots". Then they played Incomplete and Infected live in the studio (released on the Infected 1 and 2 singles) and Greg sang "let's talk about no-one, someone, 80%".
