"Rest in Peace" is the first single from Extreme's third studio album III Sides to Every Story. The single was released in 1992.

Music video[edit]

The original music video for the song was inspired by Norman McLaren's short film called Neighbours. The band was sued, but the controversy was quickly settled out of court. They later released a new version of the video, consisting only of the performance montage of the band on a white cyclorama which was displayed on the television set in the original video.

Charts[edit]

The song reached the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 96. It topped the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart in November 1992. In the UK, the song charted at No. 13 on the UK Singles Chart.
