"White Trash" is a remix of "Cake and Sodomy", a song featured on the 1994 release Portrait of an American Family. It is an acoustic re-recording of the track played by Tony Wiggins and featuring different verses from those found in "Cake and Sodomy". Because the song criticizes "southern, Christian white trash", Manson felt that "there was no better way to remix it than to have Wiggins strum and twang a redneck version".
On both the uncut and the album version, the racial comments are censored, despite them being satirical and not an attack on the black community.
