Clutch: 10001110101 Meaning
Long halls of science and all the lunatics committed there.
Robot Lords of Tokyo, SMILE TASTE KITTENS
Did you not know that the royal hunting grounds are always forbidden?
Are you rolling...

This is the real meaning of the song as told by the lead singer of clutS&T:
Are you a tech-head? You've got a song that looks like binary code ("10001110101") but it doesn't mean anything.
Neil: Yeah it doesn't really mean anything. You know, the fact that it doesn't mean anything has really upset some, a lot of people. I think they're expecting some kind of hidden command. Well the thing is to actually say something in binary code it would have to be a series of ones and zeros that would go on for a considerable length of time.
S&T: Right you'd have three and a half minutes of 1-0-1-1-0-1...
Neil: Yeah. You know I might be able to get the word "Hi" in there but I think that might be a little cutesy.
S&T: Plus you'd never be able to remember it.
Neil: No, no.

There is a long, ancient, sumerian text this is linked to. I've been studying it for years. Before translation, if you cycle through to the 10,001,110,101 word, you come to the first word of this passage: ergah teros undalum meriah phalos gerenta. Which translated means "The way your prophet breaks his bread does not speak the future." Apparently Mephirostus, the writer of the text, was trying to tell his followers that they were stupid to overanalyze his work when he himself had said it means nothing. Clearly, this is no coincidence and the band was warning it's fans to not look like idiots.
The prophets have failed.

Don't forget - there are only 10 sorts of people - those who understand binary and those who don't.

It is the binary code for plutonium. It’s about nuclear war duh. Listen to the lyrics

As being a computer science major you learn that for binary you can omit the first number if it is a 0. Thus the song is 10001110101 but if you add the omitted 0 it becomes 010001110101 then if you separate the numbers in groupings of 4 (0100 0111 0101) and convert each binary section to hexadecimal you get the numbers 4, 7, 5 which then if you count on the English alphabet gives you DGF. Have a good day.

It doesn't mean a damn thing folks. By now you should know that Neil Fallon loves to write obscure, crazy shit and let the listeners pull the meenings out of them it's part of the fun listening to clutch. In conjunction with some heavy, ripping guitar and pounding drums you got yourself some good shit people, awesome shit, no matter what niel is saying. My advice would be to buy every single Clutch album ever made and listen to every one of them a thousand times. It'll make your life a little bit better. M.L. South Amboy

That is the same number sequence that is tattooed on Bender’s shiney metal ass!.... repeat it fast enough, you travel in time!

It means we are all going to die so shut up and enjoy the ride!

10001110101 is a completely useless figure. It's 512. An integer that means absolutely nothing. Total bullshit, but I love the lyrics. It's also radioactive so don't go near it.

the numbers mean a bigger number. 10001110101 means 1141 if you convert the number from binary to decimal

First of all it is like this 10000110101 its writen for me the one the messenger not you clowns let figure out the sector and vector and lambaste you all with a giant dose of what caused my beard to burn until then muchas veces

finding meaning in something that means nothing at all is part of the human existence

Tf, am i the only one more interested in the "bake sale" than the numeric sequence? Seriously tho... when and where is the "bake sale of the year"? Js!!!!
anonymous Sep 2nd, 2016 9:43am report
I wanna write shit that means weird shit and have people suck the meaning out too.
anonymous Oct 7th, 2015 10:54am report
It is translated into GP, but it has no meaning. The might as well have put another 0 at the end.

I'm pretty sure 'temples of syrinx' is a reference to the Rush song, '2112' from 1976. I can't see it meaning anything, just a reference... 2112 is a great song so maybe it inspired Clutch in some way. IDK, it's just a guess.
