3rd Bass
Released a year after the ill-fated Cactus Revisited E.P., “Pop Goes the Weasel” instantly became a hit and soon went gold. The song helped the album reach gold status a month later. The song’s message was similar to “Gas Face”, voicing criticism towards the many mainstream commercial rap artists that had been gaining attention in the early 1990s (such as Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer).

The song features funk samples from the J.B.’s and Stevie Wonder as well as rock samples of The Who’s “Eminence Front”, and the foundation sample was from Peter Gabriel’s #1 hit, “Sledgehammer”. Production came from John Gamble, Geeby Dajani, and Dante Ross (noted for their groundbreaking work on Brand Nubian and Grand Puba’s debut albums).

The music video featured Henry Rollins as Vanilla Ice.
