About “Iron Gland”

“Iron Gland” is a hidden song by Alice In Chains from their album Dirt.

The 43-second “Iron Gland” was developed out of a guitar riff that Jerry Cantrell would play that annoyed the other band members, so he created the song (adding in a reference to Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man”) and promised to never play the guitar riff again. Listed on the back cover as track #10 but without a title.
