Rob also reveals that although he had to fight with the censors for a rating for his latest movie ’31’ (due out in September), it was The Devil’s Rejects with which securing an R rating was the most difficult. “You’re editing content for adults. One adult is telling another adult, ‘I think that’s a little too much for you. We’re gonna have to tone it down.’
A great piece of video from our friends at Loudwire where Rob Zombie plays ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’ As Loudwire explains: “We’ve got an amazing guest for this week’s edition of ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’. The legendary Rob Zombie sat down with us to prove or disprove what’s written about him on Wikipedia!
This turned out to be one of our favorite all-time episodes. We dove into Rob Zombie’s entire lifespan, digging up some falsehoods along the way. We start off talking with Rob about who he wanted to emulate as a child. He also set the record straight on a chaotic event which took place at a carnival during his youth. Zombie’s family were carnival workers by trade, but due to patrons getting pissed off over rigged games, one carnival went up in flames while guns were being fired in a state of all-out anarchy.”
Watch the video above and enjoy as Rob delves into the line between fact and fiction.
In this exclusive video interview, Loudwire chats to Rob Zombie about the dense new tapestry which is his latest solo album, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser (released April 29th).

Its out! And the feedback has been fantastic. Check out this review from Loudwire, who say “with Zombie’s cinematic background, it’s no surprise that the show is heavy on visuals.” And “…while those elements are interesting and highly entertaining, they are just icing on the cake. Zombie and company are the stars of the show, with great performances from guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D. and drummer Ginger Fish.
