Son of A Gun is the debut extended play single by Glasgow alternative rock group The Vaselines. The title-song of this EP came to a wider audience after Nirvana covered it, along with "Molly's Lips", on their compilation album Incesticide. "You Think You're A Man" is a cover of a song written by the cult-film actor Divine, while the other two were written by Frances McKee and Eugene Kelly.
