TRIVIA BOX:
The Sample used in Full throttle was reversed since Liam didn't want any trouble with copyrights. The sample is taken from the motion picture Star Wars and can be heard just as Luke is about to enter the death star trench. The unscrambled version of the track can be found on the One Love single.
"Biggs, Wedge, let's close it up - we're going in - we're going in full throttle that ought to keep those fighters off our back"

When Liam came to the cutting room for the final phase in the album production he realized that all the tracks he had originally planned for wouldn't fit onto a CD so One Love had to be edited, The Heat [The Energy] was slightly cut and the track called 'We Eat Rhythm' was left out. We Eat Rhythm was later released on a free cassette with Select Magazine in October '94 entitled '
Select Future Tracks'. A remixed version of the track can be heard during the intro and ending credits of the video 'Electronic Punks'. This mix is often referred to as We Eat Rhythm (Jungle Mix) and was often played live in gigs around '95.

In Japan a special edition of Music for the Jilted Generation was released by Avex Trax, The Prodigy's Japanese licencee. The CD album featured an extra 3" single with 3 old tracks, click
here for more information about that.

Before the album was released a couple of possible titles were mentioned from Midi Management: 'Music for the Juvenile Delinquents' and 'Music for Joyriders'. Ultimately a friend of Liam came up with the 'Jilted' title.

Music for the Jilted Generation was a much anticipated album and this it entered the UK charts at no. 1
