A track from the band's second album, lead singer Shannon Hoon wrote this song after reading a book about serial killers that included Gein. He wrote this song believing that there are two sides to everything and is showing the humorous side to the Ed Gein story.
Blind Melon wasn't the first band with a song about Gein; Slayer released "Dead Skin Mask
" about him in 1990.
