"Shoot All the Clowns" is the second and last single from Bruce Dickinson's second solo album, Balls to Picasso, released in August 1994.

On the Anthology DVD interview, Dickinson revealed that the song was the last one completed for Balls to Picasso on the insistence of the record label. [1] Due to the complicated production, the record label was skeptical of the album's success. Bruce made the song on the simple instruction that it was supposed to sound similar to Aerosmith.
