Trivia[edit]

  • "Side 1" of the Big Black Bus cassette misspells "White Knuckles" as "White Knuckle".
  • The cassette was titled after the bus used by the infamous Manson Family in the 1960s.
  • The front cover of the cassette features the band's first use of the term "Holy Wood", where the words "HOLYWOOD PROD." can be seen on the side of the school bus. This term was used as the focal point of Marilyn Manson's 2000 album Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) ten years later.
  • The title of the cassette is a parody of the Los Angeles bus operator Big Blue Bus.
