Why is it called "Red Dot"?

the drum solo track by Jack on Yield. I was just thinking the other day....why red dot? Then I thought, maybe he wrote it on the tour of Japan for Vitalogy (symbolizing their nation's flag?)? I don't know. Anyone?

    Is it actually called Red Dot? I always thought it was deliberately untitled and the "red dot" was just a placeholder symbol.

    You are correct sir.
    It has become affectionately known amongst fans as "Red Dot", but the site here officially lists it as untitled.

    When the album first came out, the song title was referred to as the color red.

    Huh. I always thought the lyric was "we're all crazy on (at?) war".

    Maybe the red dot refers to lasers from weapons?

    Man, I miss Jack's being a part of the band. So talented, and even when in the fury of his drums, still seemed chill.

    I just checked our vinyl and cd of Yield, and both just show a red dot.

    Period it is!

    I heard a story about this, during the meetings for the album concept for the yield art and serve, Jeff had a huge red zit on his neck, so instead of untitled, they went with the red dot...............and I am Totally making that up

    Amazon has the song title as "Red Bar", not sure what that is all about.
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me...
