Trivia[edit]

  • The cover for Remixploiation is based on the artwork for The Jimi Hendrix Experience's Electric Ladyland. This was one of several covers that was released, although not the original idea from Hendrix. John 5 has long been a fan of Jimi Hendrix, citing him as one of his influences. In fact John 5 contributed a track to the Jimi Hendrix tribute album Hazy Dreams back in 2003.[2]
  • "Eat It Up" is the only original, new track on the album. This was confirmed by the site administrator for John-5.com: "Another question from my talk with John the other night – "Eat it Up" is the only original track on the album. It is not a remix of any of John's other works, but a stand-alone new track." [3]

Samples and explanation[edit]

  • "Dorsia" is a remix of the track "Black Widow of La Porte" from 2007's The Devil Knows My Name and carries soundbites from the films American Psycho and Bride of Frankenstein. "Dorsia" is the name of a restaurant in New York that Bale's character Bateman, tries to get a reservation to in the movie American Psycho.[4]
