Pepsi filed a lawsuit against the band for using their logo on the single Jack Pepsi. The song. Jinx 2. Giant Killer 3. Wired God 4. Delinquent 5. Hedge Hog 6. Flame Tavern 7. Trash Truck 1991 20 Songs. Alternative 1991. Santa was a step forward for the band. Mainly because the song production improved. They also turned down the crudeness a tad from God's Balls. Not quite sure if that's a good or bad thing. It did make the album more marketable though. One thing that didn't change was Tad Doyle. Doyle is known for his ridiculous lyrics, and the lyrics on 8-Way Santa are no exception. She yells, she's a drunken ninja and Trash truck, trash truck, get me outta here are notable examples.

The tunes managed to incorporate melody and hooks in a way that had eluded the band before Giant Killer and Candi showed they hadn't lost touch with their thunderous past, but Jinx and Jack Pepsi were heavy rock you could howl along with, and Delinquent even featured a protagonist one could empathize with or at least feel sorry for.
