Vasoline – Stone Temple Pilots
“Vasoline” is a song by American rock band Stone Temple Pilots from their second album, Purple. The song was the second single of the album, reaching number one on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for two weeks. The song’s odd-sounding intro was created by Robert DeLeo, who ran his bass through a wah-wah pedal to get the said effect. The song’s lyrics were written by vocalist Scott Weiland. “Vasoline” also appears on the greatest hits compilation album Thank You. A live version also appears on The Family Values 2001 Tour compilation.
