Off The Deep End (Weird Al) Easter Egg - Al's Attempt to Scare the Crap Out of You

It's really easy to find this egg. Play the last song "You Don't Love Me Anymore".
It's track eleven. After the 3 or 4 minute song goes off, let the
CD sit for a little over 10 minutes. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, you
hear a loud burst a guitar feedback, backwards drumming, and Al screaming at
the top of his lungs. It lasts for about 7 seconds. This hidden tidbit
is called "Bite Me!", and is a reference to the infamous "Endless Nameless" on Nirvana's
"Nevermind" (which this album has a lot of references to-the cover
and booklet pics, the first song, etc.) Al says he put it on to scare you to
death if you forgot to turn the CD off. I have found since it's kind of a long wait,
use a Playstation (Dual Shock's CD player works better) and set the timer to counting down, (as in -4:03, -4:02, etc.)
instead of counting forward, and fast forward until you have like 10 seconds left. Very funny, Al!

This darned near made me swallow my gum the first time I heard it. I suppose you could also take Al's jibberish as a reference to the endless loop of "Beatles chatter" on the end of the Sergeant Pepper record. It's also on the CD, though only for about 30 seconds. This one will also scare the bejeezus out of you if you're not expecting it. That's the earliest "scare the snot out of the listener" ambush track I know of.

Ya it scared the crap out of me the first time i heard it. Or it may have just been that fact that when I heard it I was lising to the cd at night in bed and I was half asleepwhen I heard it.

Well, accually, this egg is at fourteen minutes, two seconds. If you have the volume up loud enough, it may send you flying into the air! (That's because that's what happened to me)

I was warned about this track long before my copy of OTDE came in the mail, and yet I STILL jump whenever I hear it, whether on the CD or after TWAS. Al said on his website that he wanted to make 'Bite Me' "the most annoying six seconds of audio ever recorded." I've come to believe that he was sucessful. ^_^;;

Jamie The Pumpkin King: By what you've said, the Nirvana 'Screaming Track', is actually 'Endless Nameless', hidden at the end of 'Nevermind' after 'Something in the Way. Now I'm bored of using 's.

Actually, this hidden track is a parody of the Nirvana "Screaming Song" hidden track on "Nevermind". Al has made this clear in interviews in the past. It was also used as the music for his "Ear Booker Productions" credit on his "Weird Al Show" when it appeared on CBS a couple years ago...

I don't see how it could be an attempt to stop CD-burning, as that kind of technology wasn't available to the public in 1992.

Uh, guys, I listened but the song ends at the last note of the song, the songs is still going by 10 seconds left, the CD i have *IS* real and it's Australian, maybe they took it out just like they did with the extra stuff on Running With Scissors. Those Bastards!

There is a reason for this 'scare' in the track -- it makes the CD too long by a few seconds to be burnt to a cheap cd-r... All the screaming is past that point.
