The soundtrack to Cameron Crowe's Singles was packed with a who's who of the Seattle grunge movement. With songs from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Mudhoney the OST helped implant grunge into the American musical lexicon. It was so popular it ended up going double platinum! However, there was one notable omission from the soundtrack: Citizen Dick, the fictional band fronted by Matt Dillon in the movie. That wrong has finally been righted with the release of "Touch Me I'm Dick" as a single sided 7" single. The song features Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament, and is a parody of Mudhoney's classic "Touch Me I'm Sick." Ah, dick jokes and 90s grunge, they seem to go together like peanut butter and chocolate from some reason. Limited edition red vinyl pressing with an etched quote from Dillon’s character, Cliff Poncier, explaining the meaning of the song.
