I would be curious to see a list of long wanky tracks like this on albums preceding Vitalogy:

The Beatles - "Revolution 9"
Grateful Dead - "What's Become of the Baby"

Honestly "Stupid Mop" doesn't feel too terribly far removed from tracks like "Endless Nameless" and "Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol..." -- sonically different perhaps, but functionally similar (i.e. "long, weird, noisy album enders with indistinct song structures").

NY's "Arc" was probably inspiration for "Stupid Mop" at some point as well, I'd imagine:

What others are out there?

But Gallons of Alcohol came at the end of an already abbrassive album. Come to think of it, In Utero as a whole was way more of an about-face than tacking Stupid Mop onto the end of Vitalogy.

I love this song. It's weird, it's off-the-cuff, it's got a cool groove by Jack and Jeff. Perfect album closer for Vitalogy.

It's a great introductory experiment for Jack-era PJ...

and, yeah... this soundscape is right where it belongs. It's not hurting anyone, it's creative, it's interesting, it's curious, and it's fun to hear at the end of the masterpiece that IS Vitalogy!

The great thing is, for all you naysayers, you can just hit the 'stop' button and not miss a thing. Everyone wins :hooray:

Side Four of Frank Zappa & The Mothers' "Freak Out" which was released unfinished because the record company wouldn't give them any more money.

Same group: "Weasels Ripped My Flesh" from the album of the same name which was a response to an uninterested audience. Both of these examples can be forgiven when taken in context.

One side of a Love album is a long boring jam.

The Rolling Stones' "Goin' Home", which goes absolutely nowhere, and closes the US version of "Aftermath".

I guess this kind of thing was commonplace in the 60's when bands needed to fill space.

Though it could be argued that "Revolution 9" actually serves an artistic purpose compared to most of this other stuff.

I was gonna post the Zappa stuff, but didn't feel like typing it out. You a big fan? I love the Flo & Eddie era so much.

Also, to KD's question -- Parts of Bowie's Low; parts of Hendrix's Axis: Bold as Love; and all of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music.
