|Mr. Beast track listing|
Some[who?] see "Glasgow Mega-Snake" as a return to some of the heavier sounds of 1997's Young Team, along with the rest of Mr. Beast. "Glasgow Mega-Snake" is a live favourite. It originally had the working title of "Glower of a Cat". Stuart Braithwaite has commented on the song, saying
|“||We had this idea to promote Glasgow by genetically modifying a sea-creature and somehow make it into a roller coaster, People will flock to Scotland when it's made. We wrote the song in the hope that we can sell it to Channel 5 when they do The Making of the Mega-Snake programme. We've got it sewn up.||”|
