At the end of the no excuses track a brief bit of enter sandman (metallica) is played. however they say "we're going to cut to an LL Cool J video" can someone explain to me what is meant by this? was this just a goof?

They weren't describing the tune that Mike was playing, Layne was just kidding around like mtv was going to a commercial break and would play an LL Cool J video.

I think he was making a jab at MTV because it's been taken over mainly by R/B and rap music, or they just like LL.

I thought Alice in Chains was jabbing Metallica cause of Metallica's "sell out" status at the time.

Layne actually loved LL Cool J....he was a big fan. I always thought that comment was kind of odd until I learned that. I also wondered about him saying "whats my motivation?"....and that comment was mocking rehab so to speak.

I always thought this was because James Hetfield had insulted Layne during a concert for cancelling on being tour partners due to addiction issues and this was his revenge.
