The horrific murder depicted in the anguished "Diane" is based upon the murder of West St. Paul waitress Diane Edwards by Joseph Ture in 1980. The title pronunciation, "Diane", makes a quibble with the word "dying". The music was covered by Seattle band Coffin Break in 1989, Irish band Therapy? in 1995, and Superdrag in 1998.
Hey little girl, do you need a ride?
Well, I've got room in my wagon, why don't you hop inside
We could cruise down Robert Street all night long
But I think I'll just rape you and kill you instead
