* BlackSheepHit: "No Excuses", and "Nutshell" are [[SuprisinglyGentleSong very gentle songs]] in contrast to their usually metal stylings, although they are pretty good examples of what their acoustic material sounds like.

** Their SignatureSong "Man in the Box" is also this; while having a fairly heavy dark sound, it also has a lot of Glam elements to it and lacks any of the doom metal they'd incorporate later. Though , again, this is pretty indicative of the album it came out on


Added DiffLines:

** Music/JerryCantrell at one point secluded himself for over a month while working on his ''Degradation Trip'' album. This is chronicled very frankly in his song "Pig Charmer"

** 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.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

** "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.
