Origin: [AS. prician; akin to LG. pricken, D. prikken, Dan. prikke, Sw. pricka. See Prick, n., and cf. Prink, Prig.]
Prick is the sixth album by the Melvins, which was released in 1994 through Amphetamine Reptile Records. Because at the time the Melvins already had a contract with Atlantic, Prick was released with the band name in mirror writing. The album displays a distinctly experimental quality, going as far as King Buzzo stating in an interview that Prick is "a total noise crap record we did strictly for the weirdness factor. Complete and utter nonsense, a total joke.". The band wanted to call the album Kurt Kobain but changed it after Cobain's death to eliminate the possibility of people mistaking it for a tribute record. Melvins also jokingly remarked that Kurt Cobain actually is the titular "prick", because he died and therefore forced them to change the album's name.

One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.
