** The main riff to "It Ain't Like That" was apparently a mistake that sounded cool enough for Cantrell to keep.

* UpdatedRerelease: ''Dirt'' sort of got one almost immediately after its release. The band looked at the tracklisting and noticed that "Down In A Hole" was the second to last track. Since they wanted the album to loosely tell a story from song to song[[note]]Although, contrary to popular belief, Dirt is not meant to be a full-fledged ConceptAlbum[[/note]], they requested that the song be placed between "Rain When I Die" and "Sickman." Thus, all pressings of Dirt released after its first few months on the market have "Down In A Hole" placed as the fourth rather than thirteenth track.

** One of the very last photos taken of him had him wearing a MetalGearSolid t-shirt.

** One of the very last photos taken of him had him wearing a MetalGearSolid t-shirt. The condo that he bought some time before his death also apparently had a ''massive'' TV that he used almost exclusively for gaming, and at his final recording session (the one that produced "Get Born Again" and "Died"), he spent a good deal of time talking to the runner about certain PlayStation games and giving him tips on how to get ahead or beat certain parts that he was having problems with upon noticing a console that was hooked up in the studio.

** "Iron Gland" was spawned from a riff that Cantrell kept playing that the other members hated, and he promised them that he would never play it again if they allowed him to record it.

* ReclusiveArtist: Layne Staley near the end of his life.

to:

* ReclusiveArtist: Layne Staley became this in his final years. Up near the end, it was apparently the norm for his bandmates and friends to go weeks without hearing from him; his days were likely spent playing video games, making art, or using drugs and passing out. The only people who saw him with any regularity were the patrons and employees of a nearby bar, where he was apparently a semi-regular patron (though he never bought anything and mostly just sat at an end table, usually in a drug-addled stupor; he left everyone who was there alone and they did the same). The only thing that raised any eyebrows was his accountants noticing that he had not made any bank withdrawals in two weeks, which eventually led to the police wellness check that resulted in the discovery of his life.body.
