GodWeenSatan: The Oneness is the first official Ween album, released on Twin/Tone Records in 1990. The album introduces several key themes for the group, including their eclecticism, gonzo sense of humor, and their demon god/mascot, the Boognish.
This album would be reissued in 2001 by Restless Records and jokingly referred to as the "25th Anniversary Edition" despite the album only being eleven years old. The reissue features digitally remastered sound, new packaging, and the inclusion of three bonus tracks integrated into the original album's playlist.
The album contains several tracks that are long time staples of Ween's live performances, such as "You Fucked Up", "Fat Lenny", "Marble Tulip Juicy Tree", and "L.M.L.Y.P."

The song "Echoes" by Pink Floyd can be heard in the song "Birthday Boy". This is because the band recorded the track over a previously used tape containing the track.
"Don't Laugh (I Love You)" can be heard fading out at the end of the Gwar EP The Road Behind. Gwar covered "Birthday Boy" on Slaves Going Single. Gwar slave/roadie Danny Black is referred to in "Nan".
"L.M.L.Y.P.", standing for "Let Me Lick Your Pussy", is, in part, a tribute to Prince, not only in its overall style, but with lyrics references the songs "Shockadelica" and "Alphabet St.". The version on this album is nearly nine minutes long, though live versions have been known to last over thirty minutes, usually as a set-closer. A recorded example of such a version—clocking in at 36:39—can be heard on the band's 2000 live album, Live at Stubb's.
