Songfacts®:

  • This leering track shares the title with a mock film trailer that Zombie directed for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's exploitation movie tribute Grindhouse in 2007.
  • MSN Music asked Zombie why he decided to have two werewolf songs on the same record. He replied: "It was kind of funny how that happened. Kind of ridiculous to have two werewolf songs on one record, but it just happened that way. I was really kinda bummed at what happened with Grindhouse, where it didn't turn out to be the big hit everyone was hoping for, but even beyond that, the trailers that had been made for Grindhouse, once they split the movies for DVD, they just disappeared. And I'd put a lot of work into the Werewolf Women of the SS trailer, and I hate the idea of things disappearing. It's such a disposable time for things that I'm always trying to bring it back and keep it alive. So that's why I thought it'd be kinda funny to write a song based on the trailer for a nonexistent movie."
