Mr. Bungle is the 1991 self-titled album by Mr. Bungle. The album contains many genre shifts which are typical of the band, and helped increase the band's popularity, gaining them a reasonable following and fanbase. The first track, "Quote Unquote", was originally titled "Travolta", but had to be changed for legal reasons.

* Only early pressings title the first song "Travolta"; at the request of Warner it was renamed to "Quote Unquote" (the name of an unofficial biography of the actor) to avoid legal complications.
* "Carousel" and "Egg" originated from the Goddammit I Love America! demo, while "The Girls of Porn", "Love Is a Fist", "Slowly Growing Deaf" and "Squeeze Me Macaroni" came from the OU818 demo.
* "Quote Unquote" is the only Mr. Bungle song to have an official music video; however, this video was never aired on MTV. However, the video is in the MTV Two archive and has been played on their show 120 Metal Minutes
* Samples from David Lynch's 1986 film Blue Velvet are strewn throughout the album. It is publicly known that Mike Patton would like to compose music or design the whole soundtrack to one of David Lynch's future projects.
* Other samples included Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial outtakes, items from the videogames "Super Mario Bros", "Altered Beast", "Smash TV", and “RBI Baseball", the pornographic movie Sharon's Sex Party, and the pinball games "Cyclone", Earthshaker", and "Haunted House".
* Deli Creeps singer Maximum Bob performs backup vocals; this was his first album appearance.
* The track "Carousel" contains the line "Will Warner Brothers put our records on the shelf?". In the lyric sheet, it replaces that line with "Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee", a song from the musical Grease. The track "Quote Unquote" also features a modified line from the Frankie Valli song Grease which does not appear in the lyrics.
* Chilean Funk-rock band Chancho en Piedra covered the song "My Ass is on Fire" translating the lyrics to Spanish.
