Every Six Seconds is the second studio album by American rock band Saliva. It is their first album under Island Records. In July 2008, Every Six Seconds was certified platinum by the RIAA.[6]

Title meaning[edit]

Josey Scott revealed the meaning of the album's title in an interview with Therese McKeon from the website Shoutweb:[7]

Everything we do is for a reason and I felt like this was an opportunity to do what we wanted to do right down to the album cover and the album title. It was another opportunity to be creative and invoke thought. We thought the title "Every Six Seconds" said a lot about the world today and where our society is pretty much sitting. I got it from a news documentary I was watching that was talking about robbery and car theft and murder and other subjects. It finally got around to sex of course and they said that men think about sex every six seconds. I thought that was really interesting and it kind of stuck in my mind. I think it says it all for me and for the record. It's dealing with everything from the healing condition to anger and love and sex and spiritually and the disillusionment with society. I think the title is befitting.[7]

Media appearances[edit]

  • The songs "Superstar" and "Click Click Boom" are featured in the movie The Fast and the Furious, but are not featured on the official soundtrack. Instead, a music video for "Click Click Boom" is featured in the special edition DVD. However, the additional soundtrack More Fast and the Furious does contain these two tracks.
  • "Superstar" was used as one theme song at WWE Wrestlemania X8 (18), where the band performed the song live. "Click Click Boom" was also used as the theme song for the WWF No Mercy pay-per-view event in October 2001, and can be found on the Talladega Nights soundtrack. "Superstar" was also used in the Dragonball Z TV special, Bardock: The Father of Goku.
  • In 2001, Saliva created a song for the Spy Hunter video game. Although the song is not listed on the CD, the video for "Your Disease" was put in the game as an unlockable.
  • "Superstar" and "Click Click Boom" were used on the soundtrack for the video game MX 2002 Featuring Ricky Carmichael.
  • The song "After Me" was featured in the video game The Thing.

  • Alternative Press (5/01, p. 88) – 3 out of 5 – "A pop-metal band with a penchant for pretty, angst-ridden melodies for lonely boys and girls."
  • CMJ (3/12/01, p. 19) – "Of-the-moment aggro, with an emphasis on rapcore moments interrupted by melodic, clean vocals."
