|Crash Test Dummies singles chronology|
"He Liked to Feel It" is a song by Canadian group Crash Test Dummies and was the first single from their 1996 album A Worm's Life. The song and subsequent video generated some controversy for the band due to the subject matter about a boy, who experimented with different ways of pulling out his tooth.
It is the band's highest peaking single in their native Canada to date, peaking at #2. However, it failed to chart elsewhere in the world, perhaps due to the aforementioned controversy affecting the single's promotional efforts.
The music video for the song was the band's most controversial. The video featured the band performing on a New York City rooftop interspersed with scenes of a boy pulling his tooth out in various ways, including tying the tooth to a taxicab, tying the tooth to a steak and throwing it to a dog on the other side of a fence, and tying the tooth to a crane. At the end of the video his dad pulls it out with pliers.
