Root Canals: How much do they really hurt?

I know it has to vary by patient, but generally, is a root canal a painful procedure? I've heard everything from painless to "I wanted to rip my own face off." I had one a while back that I would categorize as pretty painful, and I'm wondering if that's what I should expect now that I need another.
