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.
Dirt is the second studio album by American rock band Alice in Chains, released in 1992. The album features a heavy, grunge sound with dark, introspective lyrics that deal with themes of addiction, depression, and social alienation.
