In addition to "Little Miss Lover" and "Castles Made of Sand" by Jimi Hendrix, the band also recorded a cover of Iggy Pop's "Search and Destroy" (which appears in the Beavis and Butthead's Experience CD) as well as three original songs that did not make the final album cut; "Soul to Squeeze" (later released as a single in 1993 for the Coneheads movie soundtrack) , "Sikamikanico" (used in the movie Wayne's World) and "Fela's Cock" (an instrumental jam). They were all released multiple times as B-sides to various singles from the album and on several compilations such as Live Rare Remix Box and The Plasma Shaft.
