"Big Wheel" is a song written and recorded by Tori Amos. It was chosen as the first single from her album American Doll Posse. However, multiple radio stations rejected "Big Wheel" because the acronym MILF is repeated in the bridge of the song. An edited version was played on some radio stations that eliminated the MILF acronym, changing it to "M-I-M-I".
