Notes

* Before settling on 'Slipknot', the band went through various names including 'Pull My Finger', 'Pull', 'Painface', 'The Pale Ones', 'PygSystem' and 'Meld'.
* The song 'Slipknot' was from the viewpoint of Anders' werewolf character, Face-Of-Pain. The other songs on M.F.K.R. were as well, for the most part, except 'Some Feel' - that was from a leech's point-of-view.
* Most of the lyrics from the band's unreleased song 'Lust Disease' (which later became 'Left Behind' on the 'Iowa' album) were later used in the Painface song 'Lust'.
