"Der Wahrheit" is the 14th and final track on the album. The song is known by three names:

  • On the album cover: "Der Wahrheit" (The truth; possibly genitive: Of the truth)
  • The announcement on Bela B's website:[1] "The Wahrheit" (The truth)
  • The German normal feminine article for Wahrheit (truth): "Die Wahrheit" (The truth)

There is a hidden track before Rockula that can be heard by rewinding to -1:00. This track is a recording of Lee Hazlewood speaking about his collaboration with Bela B. on Das erste Lied des Tages from the album Bingo.
