Info [ ]
Every song on this album is a cover.
Interestingly, one of the songs ("Big Dumb Sex," by Soundgarden [Written by Chris Cornell]) is actually supposed to be making fun of the popular hard rock bands of the time like G N' R and Aerosmith.
There is a hidden track written by Charles Manson at the very end of the album called 'Look At Your Game Girl.'
