The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead was remade by The Crash Test Dummies in 1994, presumably for the movie Dumb and Dumber, whose soundtrack also sported The Primitives' remix of their own Crash and a disturbing version of Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man, sung by the Butthole Surfers.

Of note concerning The Ballad is that it marks the first widespread Crash Test Dummies release that features Ellen Reid on lead vocal rather than Brad Roberts' trademark bass-like voice. Also, for reasons unknown, the Dummies eliminated the verse concerning empty churches and shopping malls.
