Such were the legal eagles at Geffen that an APB on MTV was required in 1995 to find the owners of the T-shirts — and get the requisite releases signed to use Lance Accord’s Polaroid photo.

There was hint the band might change their name to Washing Machine, still more railing against commercialism in society but that never came to pass. Kim Gordon did play guitar on eight of the 11 tracks, leaving those songs without bass, perhaps railing against bass owners.
