"Heathen Earth" is not actually a cover but an interpretation in the vein of Throbbing Gristle as there's no actual song by the band with that song title, just one of their albums. Osborne stated in an interview with Spin Magazine "This is Throbbing Gristle's Heathen Earth in the style of what Throbbing Gristle would do.".
