The final song on EVOL had three different titles. This kinda went along with fuckery where they listed the the songs on the back cover in a totally different order than they were actually on the record. And so, on that back cover, this song was listed as “Madonna, Sean and Me” and on the lyric sheet as “The Crucifixion of Sean Penn.”
A quick aside here: the Madonna/Sean Penn marriage clearly freaked up a lot of people — and not even the ones who paid their own money to sit thorough Shanghai Surprise — because beyond these references was also Lloyd Cole’s “Sean Penn Blues.”
