Mutilation Makes Identification Difficult is the only studio album by the self-described "acid punk" band Brutal Juice. It was released in June 1995 on Interscope Records. The album features "Nationwide" and "The Vaginals," two tracks which received airplay (primarily on college radio stations).


"The Vaginals" was retitled "Ugly on the Inside" (after the song's chorus) due to the label's choice to promote it as the album's single. Later pressings of the album (as well as the music video) bear the latter title for track #3.

A working title for this album was Everything's Coming Up Toilets. The final title was chosen when the band found decaying human remains in the woods near the recording studio and later read "Mutilation Makes Identification Difficult" as a headline in the local newspaper.
