One Foot in the Grave is the third independent studio album and fourth overall by American alternative rock musician Beck , released in June on K Records , an independent label. It was recorded prior to the release of Mellow Gold , but was not released until after that album had met critical and commercial success. One Foot in the Grave shows a strong lo-fi and folk influence, and features several songs that are interpolations or covers of songs popularized by artists like Skip James and The Carter Family. The album was recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio, which at the time was housed in Johnson's basement. Like Stereopathetic Soulmanure , the album never charted; however, One Foot in the Grave strengthened Beck's critical reputation, arguably allowing him to break into the mainstream with Odelay in The former was recorded in and issued as a B-side of the "Sissyneck" and " Jack-Ass " singles in while the latter appeared in a re-recorded version on the album Sea Change. A deluxe edition was released on April 14, , featuring 16 additional tracks, with 12 previously unreleased.
Glenn Beck's "decency" doesn't extend to answering questions about why he was such an asshole

And he was right, because when it comes to Beck, I feel like a scorned woman. I really loved the guy in his early days at Fox, then suddenly he turned on me, along with the rest of his viewers. The fact that he was the most hated man in America was de facto proof that he was a fearless truth-teller, because the people of the lie — those millions of chronically dishonest folks in both the radical-left and conservative- establishment wings of the Demopublican Party — harbor venomous contempt for anyone who dares to expose their lies. But it got even worse when, in his dwindling days at Fox, Beck sat on the edge of his desk for the entire hour of each show and gave what appeared to be an extemporaneous monologue.

Glenn Beck has made a big deal of his new resolution to "try out decency" -- that is, to stop saying things like Obama is literally the antichrist who will open FEMA concentration camps due to his "deep-seated hatred of white people. But when Beck appeared on the excellent On the Media podcast MP3 to discuss this with host Bob Garfield, Beck was defensive, angry, and eventually just hung up on him, all because Garfield had the audacity to ask Beck to explain how he reconciled his commitment to "decency" with his words and deeds, both recent and in the past. Yes, was my language inflammatory to say I hate them?
Beck has expressed his surprise and and concerns after he was branded a dick by the Flaming Lip's Wayne Coyne. Back in Beck hired the Flaming Lips to support him on tour, but fell ill during the stint on the road. A fact that he believes Coyne may have mistaken for cockiness, hence why he was branded a dick by The Flaming Lips singer. In an interview with Mojo Beck explained that this led him to believe everyone in the music industry hated him. I went around for a year thinking people hated me.
